Opportunities to Serve the Community

Changing our world can start right here at home in Greater Cleveland.

Join others in our Royal Redeemer family as they spread the love of Christ in our community through:

Servant Saturday

Twice a year, in May and October, hundreds from our Royal Redeemer family spend a Saturday morning in the community — doing yard work, visiting nursing homes, helping out at shelters and more.

For more details, contact Lisa Martin at marielisamartin@gmail.com.

Care 'n' Share Thanksgiving Dinner

Every Thanksgiving, Royal Redeemer cooks and serves more than 1,000 hot turkey dinners to people in our local community. Meals are served on-site at Royal Redeemer as well as delivered to homes.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to make it happen — coordinators, cooks, bakers, servers, drivers, setup and cleanup crews, and more.

Watch for a call for volunteers each fall in Royal Redeemer’s weekly announcements or email Lisa Martin at marielisamartin@gmail.com.

Hunger Center Deliveries

Transport bread and bakery from Panera, Heinen’s, Giant Eagle and other establishments to hunger centers in Parma and on Cleveland’s West Side. Royal Redeemer’s team delivers Monday through Friday. More drivers welcome!

To volunteer, call David Domin at 440-878-9264.

Meals on Wheels

Homebound residents of North Royalton can receive two meals (one hot and one cold), delivered daily to their home by Royal Redeemer volunteers. Meals on Wheels runs Monday through Friday. Volunteers pick up and deliver prepared meals according to an assigned weekly schedule.

To volunteer, call Diane Krafft at 440-237-7958, ext. 234.

Redeemer Creations

Redeemer Creations shares warmth and God’s love with others by hand-knitting, crocheting and distributing:

  • Baby blankets, baby sweater sets and baby booties to pregnancy centers
  • Preemie caps to neonatal intensive care units
  • Lap robes and afghans to nursing homes, hospice care centers and the veterans hospital
  • Prayer shawls and lap robes to members and friends of our congregation, including recipients of Meals on Wheels
  • Winter scarves to kids in need and Cleveland-area deployed military personnel
  • Memory blankets to birthing centers
  • Baptismal blankets to newly baptized infants and crocheted crosses to newly baptized children and adults at Royal Redeemer

What You Can Do

  • Knit or crochet items independently. You should have a basic knowledge of knitting and/or crocheting, but other volunteers can teach you the basics. There is a generous supply of yarn available.
  • Join the group at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month in Room 136 to share what has been created and arrange for deliveries.
  • Donate yarn or money.
