Redeemer's mission activities and partners include:
Partners in far-flung places
The Evangelical Church of the Reformation, Beit Jala, Palestine hosts a Boys Home which shelters children without regard for religion; Abraham's House, “a facility to enable encounters among groups of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim youth from Palestine, Israel, the Middle East, and the rest of the world”; and a guest house at which Pastor Elaine and husband Michael stayed during their Holy Land trip in 2007.
Gloria Dei, once part of a bustling urban neighborhood, is now surrounded by a shopping mall. Although Gloria Dei faces many challenges, Pastor Bienvenido S Rodriguez came to Redeemer to teach us how to serve our neighbors. We strive to meet his challenge, even as he leads the New England Synod toward Healing the Wounds of Racism.
