Mercy & Care

Jesus Christ commands that we are to love one another as He has loved us (John 15:12).
At Redeemer, we desire that all of our members love and care for one another as well as their neighbor. We define care as loving one another by bearing burdens, fighting sin, and encouraging each other to abide in the love of Christ and obey His commandments, through counsel in God's word, applying the gospel, and meeting practical needs, as we live in community with God and community with one another.

This means that we want to meet physical needs, but ultimately we want people to have their emotional and spiritual needs met in Jesus as they put their trust and faith in Him. If you feel like you need care or have a physical need, we want to do our best to love you and walk with you.

If you feel like you need care for anything other than a physical need, then please continue on to the “Care” section.  (This includes anything that has to do with care for abuse, addictions, or just anything you are facing in life.)

If you have physical needs that need to be met, then please continue on to the “Mercy” section. (This includes anything that has to do with a request for help with food, shelter, clothing, or anything else physical.)


Pastoral Counseling

Depending on the urgency and severity of the struggle you might be experiencing, meeting with a pastor or care leader may be needed. Our desire for you is that you would be able to journey with God and others through our Restore Groups and Community Groups, however we understand it may be necessary for you to first receive help from a pastor or Care leader and we would love to do that. If you would like to talk to someone and receive some guidance regarding what the best next step for you might be, please fill out our Care Request Form. (This will include completing the Redeemer Gospel Care Expectations and Consent Form.) We will be happy to talk and figure out with you the best pathway forward.

Pre Marital and Marital Care

Redeemer provides Pre-Marital Care (PMC) and Marital Care free of charge for Redeemer members or those in the membership process. PMC through Redeemer is required for all members regardless of their wedding location. If you are interested in PMC please fill out our PMC Form and Informed Consent Form. If you are also interested in using the building for the ceremony, please fill out our Building Usage Form. All forms can be emailed to

After turning in these forms, you will be assigned to one of our pastors or trained marriage mentors to take you through PMC. We utilize our own material, plus a selected book to supplement the PMC sessions. A typical PMC schedule is six two-hour sessions spaced out every other week. All the sessions must be completed before a pastor will perform the ceremony.

If you and your spouse are wanting Marital Care, our desire is that you would receive care and experience relational restoration and renewal through our Community Groups and Care Groups. But if you feel you and your spouse need to work through a serious struggle in your marriage, we would love to talk with you and help chart a course forward. If you would like to talk with someone about options for marriage care, please email 

Funerals and Memorial Services

If you experience the loss of a loved one, we can help you make arrangements for a funeral/memorial service and walk alongside you during this time of grief. If you are in a Community Group, let your community group leader know about your loss. You can also contact for some next steps on arranging for a pastor to lead a funeral or for hosting a funeral at the church building.

Redeemer Care Groups

Gospel Care Groups at Redeemer are intentional discipleship and care ministry environments. Some require registration and commitment and gather weekly (for 12-14 weeks) for worship, teaching, discussion, and prayer.
Others meet on an open and consistent basis for support regarding a specific struggle.

Restore Groups

These are identity driven, closed, gospel care and discipleship groups that meet for about 13 weeks.

“A Restore Group is an intentional gospel community that starts with everyone sharing their stories, then moves through God’s story so that God can reframe and redeem your story while restoring your soul. Restore Groups help you to abide in Christ as you live in a broken world so that you can live with more freedom and confidence in Jesus. Women, men, and couples will be in different groups, which are not issue-specific.”

“Rather than limiting the focus to specific issues, Restore is built to address any life struggle we may face. Examples of struggles brought to Restore groups include anxiety, spiritual dryness, loneliness, depression, abuse, marital struggles, pornography, family issues, the aftermath of adultery, self-injury, and other issues that we face in a fallen world. In Restore, you will see how God is with you even in your darkest valley and how Jesus offers hope in every circumstance.”

“Restore is not a substitute for Community Groups. You have freedom to continue in your Community Group or to step out for a season. Through your experience in Restore, God will deepen your understanding of discipleship and care in community so that you will be better equipped to encourage and comfort those in your CG. In Restore, you will use the Restore Story Guide with your group to take a closer look at your own story as you begin to look up toward God’s story and realities revealed in his word.” (Taken from Sojourn Community Church Midtown’s Website.)

 Restore meets on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm. They require registration, commitment, and follows a specific curriculum. Please email if you are interested in participating.

Child and Family Advocacy

Through the finished work of Jesus Christ, we have been graciously given the way to be reconciled back into a right relationship with God. Part of our salvation through faith in Christ is adoption into the family of God. We believe that loving others in the way God has loved us and caring for the most vulnerable is a call for us as followers of Christ. We offer many avenues to support Foster Care families and offer trainings and information on the many ways to get involved with child and family advocacy. If you are interested in learning more or want to serve Foster Families in our midst, please email
