Ministries of Our Redeemer's

We seek to empower our church members to serve God and thus to advance His Kingdom. We realize that God calls certain members of our church to propose and to organize service projects while He calls other members to then join in this, His work. We seek to encourage, facilitate, and to coordinate these endeavors of Christian service. For more information on these ministries contact the office at 847-882-6116 unless otherwise noted.
