A Few Ways to Carefully Serve During Social Distancing

We want to continue to take wise precautions and carefully fulfill the responsibility to be the hands and feet of Christ while we care for the sick and the vulnerable in these times of great need. In addition to helping those in our immediate circles (e.g. grocery shopping for the elderly, calling people in your group to make sure they are ok) we have provided safe opportunities to serve in unique and careful ways this week.  

Note: These needs may change in the coming weeks. If you have questions about the opportunities provided call us at (615) 739-7140 or reach out to us at info@redemptioncity.com

1) Tornado Relief Drive & Work 

Can I volunteer? Yes.     Can I donate goods? Yes.

We will be conducting a drive for supplies and goods to help victims of the tornado this week. You can find items to drop off at our church building (415 Franklin Rd, Franklin TN, 37069) here. You’ll be able to drop off items daily (Tuesday - Saturday). Just let us know when you’re coming at the contact number provided above. You can also give directly to the disaster relief effort at redemptioncity.com/give under the category “TN Tornado Relief.”

We will also have opportunities for you to serve tornado victims.

Volunteers can expect to help clean and clear property covered with fallen trees and debri. If you have a chain saw please bring it with you. If you don’t have a chainsaw you are still welcome to help. Please bring gloves and wear tennis shoes or boots if you have them

Wednesday from 9 am - 12 pm and also Saturday from 9 am -1 pm.

Hartmann Plantation Cir, Lebanon, TN 37090 (This is the exact location, but it has no street number. Manny will be waiting for you there.)

Manny is the point person. Contact him if you have any questions or need any help. (615)739.7140

2) Farm Work!

Can I volunteer? Yes.     Can I donate goods? Not at this time.

Throughout this week we will have plenty of farm work available! If you're interested in serving throughout the week you can pick your day to serve at the farm HERE! We advise you to take all necessary precautions when serving at the farm as RCC leadership continues to implement healthy precautions at the farm (e.g. don’t shake hands, stay at a healthy distance from one another, having no more than 8 laborers per shift). We are asking the elderly and those who are more vulnerable to the Coronavirus to please stay home.

We hope you can make it out!

Be sure to check the calendar periodically for more opportunities!

3) The Next Door App

As Jed mentioned in his sermon this past Sunday, The Next Door App is a unique and safe way to connect with neighbors in your community. This app is a great way to stay in touch with your immediate community and help your neighbors in time of need. You can get connected on the app by simply entering your name, email, and physical address at nextdoor.com. Or you can download the app here.
