Volunteer

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry. We love giving people of all ages the opportunity to use their gifts to make a real difference for the kingdom of God. Whether serving behind the scenes or in visible leadership, every volunteer is working to live out the love of our King in the hearts of others.

All members and friends are encouraged to sign up for our Connect & Serve class to (re)discover their gifts and passions, and get connected with opportunities to serve at Royal Redeemer, in our community, and in the world.  Get involved with a CGS Community and discover opportunities to serve with others.  If you’re looking for a way to jump in to volunteer for the first time, go to our CGS Community Search page and pick the Category, Serve-First Time
