Generosity to the Mercy Fund

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. – James 1:17

Since 1991, we on the Diaconate have witnessed many lives being stabilized and transformed by the gospel. We want to thank you for rallying in support of the Diaconate, especially in this year’s challenging climate. This could not have happened without your partnership through your generous and sacrificial giving. 
Your gifts, combined with your prayers, help and strengthen the Diaconate to provide holistic care and financial assistance to those going through a hard time in our church family. We are so moved at the generosity of our congregation and the love of God that is being poured out among us. The verse from James tells us that every good and perfect gift proceeds from God, not just pertaining to this life but the one that is to come. We praise and thank God for his grace as we reflect on the goodness and perfection of the gifts we continue to receive. 
If you are a Redeemer member or regular attendee with a financial or other practical need, please call the Diaconate Helpline (917) 719-0259. Thank you.
