Getting Involved is Simple
We believe God is doing something special at Redeemer and we want you to be a part of it. We invite you to come and make Christ known "through your Helping Hands."
Our mission is... "to provide nurturing care to God’s children through our Helping Hands, offering a safe haven for holistic growth."
Helping Hands Christian Learning Center
For over 23 years, Helping Hands Christian Learning Center has been a "home away from home" for both children and their families in the greater Lansing area.
Helping Hand's is a ministry of Redeemer Church and provides children a safe, secure, comfortable and inviting learning experience that promises they will be prepared for their school years ahead.
HHC Learning Center, which is licensed by the state of Michigan, creates a positive environment for children to establish the confidence they need to explore and discover the world around them. Also it enhances their personal creative skills that will empower them to discover who they are as they engage with others.
Not only do we prepare children for kindergarten and the school years ahead, but we also provide their parents with daily peace of mind. HOW do we do this? By letting them know their children, "their gifts from God," are safe and being well cared for each day, physically, emotionally and spiritually so that they will be ready for their future.
Yes, it would be an honor to be a part of your child's growth and the future God has planned for them. For more info call,

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream that involves others is a reality.”
We at Helping Hands Christian Learning Center and Redeemer Church have been dreaming for a long time about how we could provide a healthy, outdoor learning space for both the children of our Center and the children of our Community. We have finally established a vision for this dream, which is now going to become a REALITY!!
Yes, we were able to write grants to fund the project, we were able to purchase the piece of land to the west of our property from the Ingham County Land Bank, we had blue print designed by Swanson Architects of Lansing, and we are current receiving bids from builders to have an “Outdoor Learning Center” built on the Land. Our hope is to complete this project by early summer, 2017 so that this new “Dream” can become a “Reality” as we begin our Summer Program.
This “Outdoor Learning Center” will provide children, in the middle of our city with the opportunity to enjoy a safe, outdoor environment, where they can garden, play outdoor chess and checkers, “climb” logs, do outdoor art projects and enjoy nature activities, etc. Also there will be many physical activities due to the outdoor space provided and all meals will be enjoyed outdoors under the shelter that will be built.
Research has shown that children who enjoy this kind of environment over time develop a more positive self-image, manifest more classroom harmony with others, develop an interest in science and math by connecting with nature, set up patterns for an active and healthy lifestyle, develop stronger language skills, and do better at problem-solving and communication skills through projects and group activities--all in all, every child will benefit from the environment.
We Hope To Complete This Outdoor Learning Center Soon -- However we are still in need of Funds. If you
want to give, see our Giving Page or Call, 517 882-8000. Thank You!!

Various Community Outreach Opportunities
“THE MORE YOU GIVE, THE MORE YOU GET!” If you are looking for a place to share
your time, share your gifts with others, we have some opportunities for you…
Loaves & Fishes-A Homeless Shelter in Lansing: We Volunteer on the 3rd Tuesday of the Month @ 5:45 pm. We need 2 people to serve and 3 people to prepare the meal (main meal, salad/veg. & rolls, and desert)
Thanksgiving Food Baskets: We prepare Baskets the week before the holiday for those in need in our community. These include a turkey and the fixings for a complete dinner. If you would like to help, call the church office a couple weeks before Thanksgiving and see what items we still need. Also we can also use deliverers.
Lansing Food Bank Collection: On the 2nd Sunday of each month we collect non-perishable food items for the Local Food Bank on Holmes Rd., near MLK Blvd. Items can be dropped off at the church M-F, 7am till 6pm.
"Clothe-A-Child:" is a late summer/fall opportunity that invites all of us to buy socks, underwear and school clothing for Lansing children in need. This allow us to give to “at-risk” youth and allow them to start school feeling good about themselves. Do what you can and make a difference in a young person’s life. All clothing is dispersed through the “Love Closet” at Judson Memorial Baptist Church.
"SCRIP:" is a fundraiser of the church that invites anyone and everyone to buy “gifts cards” at face value and in exchange the merchant you buy from will give the church a “kickback.” So, if you buy a card at Meijer for $25 and get a card for $25, Meijer will give the church a % payback. The same is true for all merchants. We order cards the 1st & 2nd Sunday’s of the month and cards are received the 3rd Sunday of the month. Check out for the merchants that participate in this program and call the church to place your order.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: If you are looking for a place to share your “God-Given-Time,” a place where you can grow in your faith and serve others… we have various events where you can volunteer and enjoy great fellowship with others too.

Serve & Care For Others
We are a church who is active in our local community, with each other and with the stranger in need.
Our purpose is to be “Helping Hands” to those around us. We do this by listening to other’s needs and providing for them in what ever way we can to better their lives.
Jesus said, “Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matt. 25:40b. We are all members of God’s family. We are all here to care for one another. May our “Helping Hands” be the Word of Christ in your lives.
