What is serving?

We volunteer the skills and abilities that God has given us to help others at Redemption Church and to help the people of Portland. As a church family, we serve one another together at our Weekly Gathering. We also serve locally in our city.

Why do we serve?

We don’t have to serve; we get to serve. It’s an opportunity to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus as we humbly become more like him by caring for others in the city we love. Jesus said:

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life—a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:26–28)

We love who Jesus loves, and we serve who Jesus serves.

Where can I serve?

There are lots of serving opportunities available at Redemption Church every Sunday and throughout the week. You are welcome to serve directly with other people or behind the scenes!
