MINISTRIES

OF REDEEMER UCC

FAITH FORMATION

Faith Formation's primary goal is to enable people of all ages to deepen their faith and nurture their relationship with God. Another goal is to celebrate with and support one another with each person's faith journey. Redeemer's Faith Formation Ministry Team is committed to providing opportunities and programs not only within the Sunday School, but also for our youth, young adults, families, parents, and other adult educational experiences. Together our faith will grow and so our relationship with God and one another.


YOUTH

MINISTRY

The Youth Ministries Team works to build strong relationships between youth and adults to support their spiritual and social development. This team plans to provide support for retreats, trips, fellowship activities, and leadership training.

REDEEMER'S

PRAIRIE

Our prairie continues to provide a beautiful natural oasis in an urban setting. It nurtures an abundance of wildlife including Sandhill cranes, deer, rabbits, hawks. Many insects, including bees and a variety of butterflies, call our prairie home.


HOSPITALITY

The Hospitality Team works to create a climate of extravagant welcome to all who come to Redeemer following the example of Jesus. While the team seeks to encourage all participants in Redeemer to extend hospitality to everyone they encounter, the team coordinates a ministry of hospitality at a number of possible connecting points including: Greeters, Connectors (persons who are available on Sundays to help people make connections with whatever they need), Parking Assistants, Ushers, Welcome Table hosts, Kiddie Keep, Coffee Fellowship, and other community meals.


EARTH CARE

The Earth Care Ministry Team seeks to inform people to be good stewards of the earth. Our major responsibilities are the prairie and the Sanctuary Garden. Additionally, we oversee the community garden. Informational updates are provided to Redeemer on recycling and where household items can be conveniently recycled.


STEWARDSHIP

The Stewarship Team works to educate the congregation about the spiritual basis for our giving. This process will generate testimony to the benefits of returning God's gifts of time, talent, and treasure to perform God's work in our church and throughout our community. We help develop a greater level of giving by our congregation in order to support the overall ministry and missions at Redeemer.


YOU'RE INVITED

WORSHIP MINISTRY

Worship Ministry's work in many ways is the "doorway" into the whole life of Redeemer, in worship we meet God and one another where all are welcomed into the community of faith. Worship inspires, empowers, and guides our personal and community life. Planning for and conducting meaningful worship experiences is our principle ministry. In addition to regularly planning and conducting worship services throughout the year, our goals include finding more ways to use our worship space to create meaningful worship experiences; making use of the artistic gifts of more people including music, drama, dance, and visual arts to enhance our worship; developing different types of worship to address particular needs of different groups of people (e.g. healing services or services focused on needs of youth and young adults) outside of regular Sunday worship.


MISSION TEAM

The Mission Team endeavors to be responsible stewards of God's gifts - linking the needs of the world with the time, talent and financial resources of our congregation. Ongoing activities include Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM), Gold Can offerings, Outreach Meals, Operation Backpack school supply drive, Interfaith Holiday Gift Baskets, ERAs Senior Network, Habitat for Humanity, Hope House of Milwaukee, Sussex Outreach Services, Pewaukee Food Pantry, and Back Bay Mission trip to help rebuild the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina.


BUILDING & GROUNDS

The Building and Grounds Team handles tasks to do with physical upkeep of our church home including the building, grounds, and the church cemetery. These taks include cleaning, maintenance, security, upkeep and repairs, snow removal, and lawn mowing.


CHURCH GROWTH

The Church Growth Ministry Team's goal is to make Redeemer a welcoming church. We strive to make the community aware of who we are through projects such as Getting to Know Redeemer sessions, church picnic, advertising and signage, brochures and promotional items, and Redeemer's Facebook page. We further show our spirit by greeting visitors and welcoming new members.


CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Congregational Care Ministry focuses on the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the members of Redeemer UCC. Included is In-Home Visiting Team, Greeting Card Team, Prayer Shawl Team, and Helping Hands Team.


INTERESTS & GIFTS SURVEY

No believer has every spiritual gift, and no single gift is given to everyone (1 Corinthians 12:27-31). Our different sets of spiritual gifts complement each other to accomplish God's purposes through the church (Romans 12:4-6; 1 Corinthians 3:6-9, 12:4-7).


We are all a gift from God!  We are called to use our God-given gifts to serve others.  Please consider the ways God is calling you to share your gifts.  Each member or visitor is encouraged to complete the survey.  This will help us, as a church, understand the unique attributes and interests of the congregation.
