There are many ways to serve Redeemer through one of our congregations and on Sundays.
The Sunday Service Teams consist of ushers, Communion servers, greeters, and information and book tables staff. Serving before, during and after services, these teams of volunteers play a vital role in welcoming, assisting and providing resources for congregants and visitors.
Serving on Sunday, however, goes far beyond performing these necessary tasks — it’s also an easy and effective way to participate in the community and practice serving one another the way that Christ served us. Sunday Service Teams connect our volunteers to the community by encouraging personal and spiritual growth through training and involvement in a network of support within the various ministry teams. We invite our volunteers to take advantage of our leadership trainings and social events. We invite you to join the Sunday Service Team community as a part of Redeemer’s ministry to New York City.
Because Community Groups are where our congregants are most known and cared for in community, we are always seeking new leaders and hosts. While you can sign up to lead at any time, Beta Groups (held each fall) are a nice way to start with only a seven-week commitment.
Volunteers meet to pray together before each of our services. The focus is to pray for every aspect of the service and the neighborhood surrounding it. Learn more about how you can join a prayer team for the specific congregation you attend: Downtown, East Side or West Side.
Do you enjoy working with children? Are you interested in furthering God’s kingdom by investing in the future disciples of his church? We have multiple opportunities to help, from teaching classes and leading kids’ worship or prayer to using your artistic gifts and more. See your specific congregation to sign up: Downtown, East Side or West Side.
Church members can serve as a deacon or deaconess. To become a deacon/deaconess, a member must be in good standing and nominated by another member in the month of November. Learn more about the Diaconate and the nomination process.
