"...love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord."
This is a command that governs how our congregation lives and interacts with our local and global communities.
Our congregation provides support to a variety of non-profit organizations whose missions is to help others who are in need.
Redeemer is also proud to be a founding member of the Student Christian Center - an ecumenical campus ministry located on the New Paltz campus of the State University of New York.
At Redeemer, we also realize the importance of providing other services to our community. Whether it be in the form of music concerts, providing low-cost meeting space, or simply partaking in the Adopt-A-Highway cleanup, our focus is helping our neighbors.
On a beautiful New Paltz autumn day, 132 Walkers participated in the 2010 New Paltz CROP Walk. Thus far $14,908.00 has been raised through online donations, sponsored walkers and a silent auction. Late donations are anticipated to come in.
Did your congregation recently send a student or two off to college? Help students connect with Lutheran campus ministries. If you know students at SUNY New Paltz, please contact Pastor Tobias Anderson. Pastor Anderson will happily link students both with this congregation (across the street from SUNY) and the ecumenical Student Christian Center ministry on campus.
