Serve in the Community

Care/Tabitha Ministry

The Care Ministry consists of a group of individuals who are called to honor the glory of God through the Tabitha Ministry. Tabitha Ministers serve the Christian Community through nurturing and supporting brothers and sisters who are homebound, hospitalized or in nursing home situations. Some of service include periodic weekly and monthly visitation, the mailing of weekly sermon CDs and bulletins, taking the sacrament of Holy Communion, and gifts of handmade Prayer Shawls for those who are homebound or facing tough circumstances.

Outreach Ministry

Jesus said "Go and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19)

One of the best ways we can show that we are disciples is by our works through outreach in the community. Redwood Church has a tradition of service by helping others through outreach. The Outreach Ministry Team strives to provide concrete ways for members of our congregation to be in service to those in the community. We invite you to be a part of this ministry.

Redwood offers a number of short-term mission teams, as well as disaster response work for those who are ready and willing to serve. We have active partnerships with missionaries and missionary work in Brazil and Ghana, as well as with STEP, Inc. of Franklin County. In addition, Redwood sends people to serve in the following local non-profits and agencies:

Southern Virginia Child Advocacy Center

Henry Fork Service Center

Stepping Stone Mission (Soup Kitchen)

Heavenly Manna

Franklin Co. Family Resource Center (Women’s Shelter)

Franklin Co. Habitat for Humanity

The purpose of Redwood’s Stephen Ministry is “To be Christ caring for hurting people.” Stephen Ministry provides our congregation with the structure, training, and resources to set up and administer a complete system for lay caring ministry in our church and community. Lay caregivers (called Stephen Ministers) provide one-to-one Christian care to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocated, and others facing a crisis or life challenge. Stephen Ministry helps our congregation to provide quality caring ministry for as long as people need it.

Contact the church office (483-9090 or for information about having a Stephen Minister to help provide care for you, or to inquire about becoming a Stephen Minister. For more information on Stephen Ministries, visit
