Join with the community of Redeemer, New Paltz, as we go out to serve in the world through various volunteer-coordinated efforts. Our focus areas are Hunger/Homelessness, Equality/Justice, Earthcare, and Campus Ministry. Some of our projects have included weeding and helping at Festivals to support our local hunger partner, Phillies Bridge Farm, supporting students over on the SUNY New Paltz campus through the Student Christian Center, and delivering Christmas gifts to needy families through FAMILY of New Paltz.
Service is our faith-filled response (made possible by God) to God’s freely given gift of grace and forgiveness through Christ. Martin Luther suggested that the more that we meditate on the cross and God’s freely-given gift of grace, the more we will find ourselves wanting to respond to that grace with loving service to God and to the world.
"If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness
