Early this winter, wildfires caused catastrophic damage in and around the Gatlinburg, Tenn., area. Many homes and businesses were completely destroyed. Helping His Hands Disaster Response has been in the area providing assistance since the fires were put out. They recently met someone in the area who lost everything. Helping His Hands has been able to secure enough funds to start rebuilding her home in Gatlinburg and they need Redemption’s help. The basement has been poured, so Redemption will be framing and helping with other tasks on site to begin getting her house built.

As was announced on Sunday, Jasper Campus Children’s Minister Hannah Martin is departing our staff at the end of the month for a position at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville (a church that has greatly influenced and aided Redemption over the years).
Because of the move, we will be hiring a new Children’s Minister for the Jasper Campus.
