“Our Outreach has backed many projects over the years, all of which, in my estimation at least, are hallelujah moments. The one that sticks out in my heart, mind, and soul above any other was when someone stated, after I mentioned the church I attended, "Oh that's the church that helps people." She summed our Outreach Program up in a nutshell. Because of steadfast help, we rejoiced when two students, whom we have been tutoring/mentoring for 10 years, graduated from high school this past May. Each is attending the college of their choice. The graduation defines our help in the community as a gift way beyond our purse strings. Our help comes from the heart. Redeemer Outreach is our way of doing the work of the Lord in the world around us. Praise be to God for this ministry”...Lucy Ogletree, Parishioner
