Volunteer Opportunities
  • Would you like to volunteer as a server for the coffee hour after worship service? If so, we'd love to have you! Contact the office for more information.
  • If you're available during the weekdays, we'd love for you to volunteer with us in the office! For more info, give us a call or look for Julio during church.
Cooking for YouthHope
As a church outreach, we currently have 3 teams that prepare meals for Redlands' homeless, runaway, and under-served youth, ages 14-24 involved with YouthHope. There is a need to start a fourth group, so we are reaching out to find 4 – 5 people interested in forming it.

Your responsibilities would involve planning a dinner for about 60 youth, buying the ingredients, cooking in our church kitchen, and delivering it on the 4th Monday of the month (December, April, August) to the YouthHope building on Tennessee Street.

If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Lisa Soria, or call our church office at (909) 793-3157.  Thank you very much!

*Many have been asking how to support the Garcia family during Seve's recovery, and since his diet is currently very delicate, grocery gift cards would be a tremendous help. If you'd like to contribute a gift card from Trader Joe's or Stater Bros, feel free to bring one to church on Sunday and place it in the collection plate, or stop by our church office and we will arrange to deliver it to them.
