As Christians, we are not fully one holy and catholic (universal) church without a global perspective. Outreach efforts at Our Redeemer’s equip and empowers people to be the Body of Christ in the world by ministering to the needs of people in both the Helena community and worldwide. These connections strengthen God’s mission in the world. Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church is active in both local and global mission efforts through:

Hunger Team

The Hunger Team is a group of passionate, active people who coordinate with several organizations in the Helena area to provide services that address  the issues of homelessness and, of course, hunger.  Hunger Team typically meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church.
