Join a Family


Several families in our church have "adopted" students over the years. Some families will have you over for a home-cooked meal every month or teach you how to cook in your own kitchen. You might discover new hiking spots from a local. If the need arises, you can phone a friend next time you get a flat tire. The experience is really up to you and the family to make something great of it. Our church has loved having students over the years and some of them still won't leave!  That's OK with us. 



If you would like a family at Redeemer to contact you, leave your contact information below and we will get in touch with you shortly.
