This group began out of the need of work ladies. There were many ladies who work outside the home and wanted to belong to the Women’s Fellowship, so an evening group began. The EC is a very active group of ladies. They are like the WF and do the same things for the church. This group is known for their awesome sandwiches they provide for Vacation Bible School. The EC is in charge of preparing the delicious “Turkey and Dressing Dinner” for Redeemer’s Harvest Day Celebration. There are many, many hands that help them, and the food is always outstanding! They too provide benevolences to the Battered Women’s Shelter, The Child Protective Services, The Guadalupe Hospice, Marion Project CARE and others.
Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.This group began in 2004 when a group of Redeemer’s people wanted the church to become more active in “the reach out to others.”
The goal of the RF is “Missions.”
They are true “Worker Bees.”
They are known for the great meals they provide to raise funds for families in need, Marion Project CARE, the mission in India, the Back Bay Mission on the Gulf Coast, Guadalupe CPS, the Christmas Angel Trees for children, food for families at Christmas time and many other things. If there is a need, this group is there to assist! Oh yes, at Vacation Bible School, they are the group that provides the children and their parents with the greatest Grilled Cheese Sandwiches on this side of the Cibolo Creek.
RF has Craft Shows and Rummage Sales every year to help raise funds for projects. One of the many outstanding events that they organize is something that Redeemer has named “Night in Old Bethlehem.” This event is open to the community and surrounding area not just our church. The staff at the Marion Community Library are co-partners in helping organize this event. This event is a great opportunity for families to get together to begin the celebration of the Advent Season. It takes place the first Saturday of December each year. It is a time for children to learn the true meaning of Christmas. There are many hands-on activities for the young and old, things of today, yesterday and of Jesus’ Day. There is a live nativity, a hayride, ice-skating in South Texas, great food, homemade baked goods, singing/music, many other hands-on activities and the La Posada at the closing of the night.
Began in the 1930 as the Women’s Guild. Like in every family, it is the woman who works hard and knows that all things are possible with God’s assistance. The WF is a group that meets every third Wednesday of the month at 2:00 pm. They manage some of the upkeep in the church and the church’s kitchen. They are always ready to assist with any group within the church that has a project. The WF is known for their great Spaghetti dinners they prepare for Vacation Bible School. The also have the best “Country Store” at Redeemer’s Harvest Day Celebration in October each year. They provide benevolences to the Battered Women’s Shelter, The Child Protective Services, The Guadalupe Hospice, Marion Project CARE and others.
This group is a true ROCK at Redeemer.
