Care Ministry is committed to meeting people where they are in their time of crisis. It is our privilege to offer them hope in Jesus Christ, as well as helping them in their time of need. Some areas we address are food, by the use of our pantry, very limited financial assistance, referrals for counseling, prayer, and most importantly, sharing the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Prayer is an essential part of this ministry as we depend on the leading of the Holy Spirit for guidance and direction.

Food Pantry

Redeemer's food pantry is open on Mondays from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.



Volunteer opportunities are available in the food pantry. Help is always needed for loading and unloading, packing and handing our bags, and front desk sign-in.


Care Ministry is supported solely by prayer, donations, and memorials. Redeemer Lutheran Church has given us the privilege of showing compassion and kindness to others just as Jesus has shown us by His death and resurrection. May we never lose sight of the fact that we are blessed to be a blessing.
