CARE MINISTRIES

You’re not alone! We all go through tough stuff – some more than others.
Whether you’re dealing with illness, a broken relationship, the death of a loved one, financial hardship, stress, or other difficulties, know that there is help and hope.

Food Pantry

The Royal Redeemer Food Pantry partnership with the city of North Royalton can help with non-perishable food items and toiletries to residents of North Royalton and surrounding communities.

Appointments are scheduled during the day and can be made every 30 days. First-time visitors must provide photo identification.

Bereavement Team

Our team supports family members during the year following the death of a loved one. We send booklets periodically to help them through the grief process.

Home & Hospital Visits

If someone in your family is ill or in the hospital – or just in need of prayer – our ministry staff can be at your side to offer support. We’ll come to you, whether you’re at home or somewhere else. We can even bring communion to you if you’re unable to attend regular worship services. Home communion ministers are available for monthly visits.

Meals are delivered Monday – Friday between the hours of 11:00am and noon. Two meals are provided each day for $6.00 and include one hot and one cold meal plus beverage.
