New-ish to Redeemer? Every 8 weeks after the 11am service, we have Newcomer’s Lunches, and we’d love for you to join us! It’s a great chance to meet people, ask questions, and learn more about Redeemer. All ages welcome (plus, we’ll have supervised play for kids in the gym after we eat).
Learn more and sign up at the Welcome Table on Sunday mornings, or online!
Discovering Redeemer is about more than church membership!
Interested in learning more about Redeemer? Come get answers to questions like:
What does it mean to be, “In the city, for the city”?
Why does Redeemer have membership? What difference
does it make?
What’s our story? Where’d we come from as a congregation
and who are we interested in becoming?
Join the next session Friday, April 12 from 6-9pm and Saturday, April 13 from 9-noon.
Dinner on Friday and Breakfast on Saturday are both provided, but there will not be any childcare. If childcare is an issue, let us know.
Dig deeper into what it means to be a part of the community here!
Our community group ministry is a driving force here in that it is more than a bible study taking place for an hour each week. Our community groups are centered on engaging in intentional Christian community where we live and how we seek to be a Kingdom presence there. In connecting people to Jesus within community groups, we believe the people of Redeemer will grow more and more in the gospel and their identities as sons and daughters of the King. We trust this Spirit-changing work will ignite a movement of the gospel that changes Indianapolis, spiritually, socially and culturally.
Redeemer places a high value on building community where you live. Because of this, a lot of our outreach is based around the neighborhoods close to our 16th and Delaware location (in turn, our daughter congregation Fountain Square Pres has ministries in their neck of the woods). We encourage members and regular attenders to be involved in a location-based community group, we have a tutoring program for our friends down the street at 16 Park, and our Deacon Team focuses on the needs of our neighbors. Our global missions partners are like-minded, building community and spreading the Gospel where they live.
GLOBAL MISSIONS TEAM
Our Global Missions Team facilitates international and local missions, and encourages a global missions movement within the church through education, communication, and international participation.
We are currently seeking new members to serve on our sub-committees: Partner Care, Communications, and Trips+Grants. To get involved, contact Ben Reed.
NEW STAR COMMUNITY
Our New Star Community program works to bridge the gap between isolated neighbors and cultures to create a stronger, more diverse culture and community that worships God and reflects his character while furthering the education and spiritual growth of our community’s youth. Program volunteers meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 4-5:15 at the 16 Park Community Center to tutor kids, provide snacks, and engage with them in planned activities.
New Star is currently looking for volunteers. Contact Caroline Fridblom if you are able to tutor (1+ days a week) or provide snacks.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a ministry that supports and encourages moms. Join us on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 9:30-11:30am in the Underground Gallery (lower level) for good discussion, thought-provoking speakers, crafts, and food. Free childcare is available through our MOPPETS program.
SUNDAY CLASSES + AGE-BASED GROUPS
Volunteers in our nursery minister to our children under 4 through prayer, story and play. They provide healthy, safe and loving care. The nursery is available on Sunday mornings, 8:15-12:30.
To volunteer in our nursery, contact Darby Chodakowski.
Children's Worship exists to facilitate children’s worship of God and to teach them the elements of the liturgy used by Redeemer. We use this time to prepare them to enter into worship in the sanctuary. Kids ages 4 - K are welcome to join us during the sermon (parents are always welcome to observe!).
To help out with Children's Worship, contact Nikki Reed.
Children's CT+T (or Sunday Classes) provides an age-appropriate environment to help children understand God's character, the grace of Christ, the primacy of the Word and the pursuit of the Holy Spirit. We partner with parents in leading children to the Gospel. Classes are offered for kids ages K-5th grade.
Student Ministry disciples, equips, and motivates our students to be ministers of the Gospel, ready and eager to do Christ’s Kingdom work. Student Ministry is for Middle and High Schoolers. We meet on Sunday mornings for classes and Sunday evening for large and small group activities. Youth from Redeemer Presbyterian Church and our daughter church, Fountain Square Presbyterian, meet together.
If you are interested in working with the youth, contact Caroline Fridblom.
SUNDAY MORNING "BEHIND THE SCENES"
These teams work to make Sunday morning worship happen. Whether it be actually behind the scenes like our food and sound teams or a bit more visible like our music and welcome teams, these groups make it possible for us to worship together each Sunday.
MUSIC + SOUND TEAM
Our music and sound teams lead our congregation in Sunday morning corporate worship. Click here to listen to our music.
If you are a musician or have the makings of a sound technician, contact Nathan Partain to get involved.
Our scripture readers read the passage that the sermon is based out of each week. This team thoughtfully and transparently communicates God’s word in our worship services.
Contact Nathan Partain to be a part of this team.
LITURGICAL ARTS TEAM
Redeemer's liturgical arts team is a big part of our church's culture. This team creates art installations in our sanctuary in order to expound the multifaceted beauty of the liturgical worship of Redeemer through the use of visual art and installations. We are always looking for artists, folks with installation and carpentry experience, and even people who don't think of themselves as artistic but would like to be involved with our community in this way.
This team is currently looking to add artists, carpenters, and art enthusiasts. Contact Kyle Ragsdale to join our liturgical arts team.
We provide bagels, coffee, and donuts in order to create fellowship between members of our congregation and guests by bringing them to one place to enjoy food and conversation together.
To join the food team, contact Paul Crimmins.
The welcome team works to make Redeemer's congregation feel welcomed and cared for. We give directions, listen to needs, and help connect our congregation to activities and ministries going on here at Redeemer.
For more information about joining the welcome team, contact Lauren McElhaney.
BOILER ROOM PRAYER
Our Boiler Room Prayer Team is an important and unique aspect of Sunday morning at Redeemer. This team supports the worship and mission of the Redeemer community through prayer during worship. While we stand upstairs worshiping and listening to the sermon, a group of dedicated individuals sits in the room below the sanctuary in prayer.
If this group is up your alley, contact Renata Jackson to get involved.
