Strengthening the Connection
Help the kids at Zanewood Community School by donating school supplies!
Some students in our adopted school, Zanewood Community School, are unable to buy their own school supplies. Let’s help by dropping off donations in designated containers at church. Suggested items:
- Plain yellow, no. 2-sized pencils (not mechanical)
- Washable Crayola markers
- 4 oz. bottles of Elmers glue (not gel or paste)
- Watercolor paints
- 24 count crayons
- 24 count colored pencils
- Large erasers (like “Pink Pearl”)
- Plastic school boxes
- Wide-lined, one-subject spiral notebooks
- Solid-color pocket folders
- Pack of wide-lined, loose-leaf paper
- Rulers (must have inches and centimeters)
- School bag or backpack (no wheels)
During winter months coats, mittens, scarves, and hats are also needed. Mary (Paul) Johnson can give you information on the many ways to volunteer at this elementary school, located just a mile from Redeemer Covenant Church.
Families Moving Forward
Several times a year Redeemer becomes “home” for a week to families in need, and volunteers assist this ministry with sleeping overnight at church, helping with meals, hanging out and playing with the kids, or donating food or cash.
This is a great chance to serve our community—by yourself, as a small group, or as a family! Sign up at church or contact the church office to find out how you or your family can be part of this wonderful ministry opportunity!
Blessing to Bless
On March 8, 2009, Redeemer Covenant Church entered a partnership to reach the Hispanic community for Christ as La Bendición Covenant Church began meeting in the Redeemer facility. Their stated mission is “to transform families with God’s power, love and bless to be blessing.” They take their vision from Genesis 12:2-3, “You will be a blessing to bless,” and seek to call the community to AGAPE:
- Adorar a Diós con Pasión
- Ganar familias
- Adiestrar Discipulos
- Proclamar la Palabra de Dios
- Extender la bendición
Translated, La Bendición Covenant Church desires to Worship God with passion, Win families to God, Train disciples, Proclaim God’s Word, and Extend blessings.
