Zion’s partner church in North Minneapolis is very active with a number of activities going on. Sixteen STEP-UP youth interns are working work across the Redeemer Lutheran Church and Redeemer Center for Life campus and co-hosting weekly Wednesday night cookouts. With the help of a Harrison local resident, Redeemer is steadily planting, watering and tending to the Redeemer Community Garden. An outdoor bread oven is used to prepare community meals. Weekly garden sessions are held on Tuesday afternoons, as well as evening and monthly events.
Every month, Redeemer is teaming up with Salem Lutheran Church in North Minneapolis to host The Word, a community meal, worship, and open mic music event for the Northside. Salem Lutheran Church will also be joining Redeemer for the annual Block Party in August.
Redeemer also has a co-ed softball team that plays games at Bryn Mawr fields against the backdrop of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.
