PADS at Redeemer
As a part of the DuPage PADS network, Redeemer serves as an interim overnight shelter site for the homeless of DuPage County each Saturday night/Sunday morning from May through September. For most of the summer, we will be the the only shelter site available in DuPage County on Saturday evenings. Our congregation, neighbors and other local organizations, and churches work together to support this shelter. Redeemer will staff the shelter site twice over the course of the summer:
Saturday–Sunday July 30-31
Saturday–Sunday Sept. 3-4
Look for a Sign-Up Genius link coming soon!
It takes nearly 30 volunteers to operate the shelter for one evening. There are many different ways to assist for all ages. Youth can easily assist with food preparation, serving and set up, but need to be directly supervised by their parents. Participating on a shift is a great opportunity for small groups, families and individuals alike and no experience is necessary. If you have any questions please contact the Church Office.
Vacation Bible School:
We're bringing camp to our congregation with Lutherdale's VBS program! Lutherdale will send a team of counselors to lead us in a week of exploring "The Jesus Way." This "day camp" style program will run morning through mid-afternoon, Monday through Thursday, with a kickoff Sunday morning, June 26.
Children currently in kindergarten through fifth grade can be full day campers, but we'll also provide a half day option for preschoolers.
More details and registration info to come soon!
