Local Outreach

Local outreach at Our Redeemer’s equips and empowers people to be the Body of Christ in the world by ministering to the needs of people in our community.

God’s Love on Mondays
Our Redeemer’s is committed to serving meals at God’s Love every Monday evening. Located at 533 North Main Street in Helena, God’s Love is a ministry that reaches out to serve those in need, especially in uncertain economic times. If you have not volunteered at God’s Love, you might be surprised what the faces of those who are homeless look like. Engage your faith … you will be blessed.  When volunteering to serve at God’s Love, please note that you need to be there by 4:15 pm because serving starts promptly at 4:30 pm. Please contact Ruth Straley (406.458.5502) with questions.

Family Promise
Our Redeemer’s seeks to bring holistic care and the hope of Christ to those who are struggling against poverty, both locally and around the world.  We regularly host Family Promise® in our church facility. Family Promise® of Greater Helena is a local nonprofit organization with a mission to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a tried and true model of an “Interfaith Hospitality Network.” For more information or to learn about volunteering, please contact Carolee Stuberg (e-mail or 406.410.0315).

Helena Food Share
Our Redeemer’s contributes food to Helena Food Share on a regular basis.  The Helena Food Share collection boxes are located in the narthex.  In addition to the normal needs, the congregation also assists with the assembling of kid packs.  These packs provide weekend nutrition for 200-250 children in Head Start and elementary schools throughout the city.  Each month the congregation assists by collecting ingredients for these kid packs. See the monthly newsletter and the display in the narthex for more details about each monthly collection. For more information regarding the Hunger Team and its efforts to alleviate local hunger issues, contact Linda Nelson (e-mail).

Friendship Center
Every Thursday, about a dozen women gather at the church to sew and socialize.  Working together, the group makes quilts, pillowcases, placemats, dish towels and other household items.  These items are placed in hand-stitched bags and delivered to the Friendship Center, a shelter for abused women and children.  The sewing circle has a simple, substantive goal: to provide one bag and one quilt to each new woman who arrives at the center to help her start her new life. For more information, please contact Annette Wakefield (e-mail).
