Making a Difference Through the Mercy Fund

I’m so humbled by the abundance and generosity of all those involved to make this amazing blessing happen during such a dark time in my life. It’s so wonderful to see Christ manifesting himself in his body, the church and to know I’m not alone.

Happy New Year. There is an anticipatory atmosphere around us this time of the year. For those who have been going through a hard time, the hope is that the new year brings better times. How did you ring in the new year? Did you anticipate God using you to make a difference in other people’s lives?

As we embark on this new year, we on the Diaconate thank all of you who have supported the mercy work of the Diaconate through your prayers, encouragements and financial support. Your generous and sacrificial giving to the Diaconate’s Mercy Fund translated to more than 470 Redeemer individuals and families receiving help with rent, food, utilities, counseling, job search training, transportation, along with spiritual support totaling $386K in 2013. Another $415K facilitated ongoing Sandy relief in the tri-state area. We had the privilege of seeing lives stabilized and transformed This could not have happened without your partnership.
