Reaching Out Locally

 

IMG_4670There are a number of ways that Church of the Redeemer and our members are bringing the life of Christ to those nearby.  We are actively engaged in serving in local communities such as Highwood, as well as through Love INC that serves the needy in Lake County, and through our members in various ministries, such as work with gang-related youth in the city of Chicago.
