There are several ministries under the umbrella of R City: Street Retreat, Thrift Store, Open Gym, Food Pantry and clothing Assistance, Urban Arts Program, Lunch With The City, Affordable Christmas, Collectively these ministries make up R/CITY.

Lunch With The City

Lunch With The City is a monthly rhythm of our church that typically takes place the last Saturday of every month. This is a time where we fellowship with our neighbors over a meal centered around the gospel. Some of the fellowship happens during times of family fun and games, community service, intentional acts of love towards our neighbors, block parties etc. We invite our neighbors of all walks of life to participate with us as we serve our community and break bread together.

Street Retreat

R/CITY – Street Retreat is a quarterly program that gives special attention to our brothers and sisters from and around our community, who are in danger of or experiencing homelessness. We invite them into our Church home for approximately 1 week as our personal guests for a very intentional time of fellowship and support, centered around the gospel story and a meal.

Redemption Cares

Redemption Care is an outward focus ministry that supplies Alhambra’s congregation and the city of Alhambra with food, clothes, information on temporary shelter, volunteer opportunities, and fellowship. It’s primary focus is those within the Alhambra community that needs immediate food or supplies. However, its secondary focus is anyone in need may come and use the resources made available to them.

Open Gym

Open Gym is designed to bring the city together in the Alhambra congregation’s gym to fellowship while playing basketball. The primary focus is to bring men of all ages together to display a tapestry of individuals coming together to do what they love in a place dedicated to the work of Christ. However, the secondary focus is to bring all people together that have a passion for the game to come and enjoy themselves with the understanding that it is because of the work of Christ that everyone is together in that gym at that particular moment.

The Program

The Program is a youth sports initiative designed to teach kids in our community the importance of God, Family, School, and Sports. It is a mentorship that not only trains a child on the field and on the court but also in life with a biblical worldview.

Urban Arts

Urban Arts is designed to be an outlet of expression for any type of artist in our community. There is an annual art gallery, concerts, mural paintings, art and music studios, and a community garden. The primary focus of this ministry is to glorify God through our many gifts and talents.
