CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES


Mission and Vision

We envision every member of Redeemer Church living out his or her identity as a disciple of the Lord Jesus sent out to make disciples of all nations and be “the light of the world” (Matt 5:14) both in Lubbock and to the ends of the earth (Matt 28:18-20; John 20:21; Acts 1:8). As part of that vision, we desire to see every disciple equipped and mobilized to make disciples both at home and abroad. Specifically, we want to see Redeemer members actively participating in praying for, giving to, and volunteering with all of our For the City partners on a regular basis, serving the vulnerable and seeing God’s kingdom spread throughout our city. 

As we serve, we are changed as we also bring gospel-centered change to our city. This ethic of inward change leading to outward biblical justice can be seen when Isaiah called the people of his day to, “Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause” (Isa 1:16-17). From the very beginning, one core defining characteristic of the life of the church has been caring for those most vulnerable and in need (James 1:27). Thus, Redeemer Church seeks to be a body of transformed disciples who are transforming our city by actively making disciples, joyfully serving, and generously giving.

UNIQUE COVID-19 RELATED SERVING OPPORTUNITIES

Below are a couple of opportunities for our Redeemer family to partner with Lubbock Impact or the Food Bank

LUBBOCK IMPACT:

Lubbock Impact, one of our trusted For the City partners, is uniquely positioned to serve Lubbock during the COVID-19 crisis. Now, more than ever, our city is hurting and some are in desperate need of food. We have a chance to make a big impact by donating toward these efforts. Due to COVID-19, costs have skyrocketed to 5 times what they were before the pandemic. The needs now are greater than ever.

There are two ways to give:

  • On their website—lubbockimpact.com. On the website—there is a comment area—just put Food vouchers.
  • Or text LBBIMPACT to 44321 On the Text—there is a way to give more details—“in honor of someone” and just put Food vouchers.

FOOD BANK:

They are in need of a lot of help and are looking for a commitment from volunteers for 9-5 Monday-Friday, and for very specific jobs. They are really looking for the same individuals who will come on a consistent basis to limit exposure and not have our staff needing to retrain. Before this pandemic happened they averaged about 40 volunteers on a daily basis and now are down to about 2-4. They greatly depended on our volunteer base to get the job done before and now with the increase in demand, it’s even more apparent.  If you are interested email info@redeemerlubbock.org.
