Triads of Care
In this season we need to develop creative and innovative ways to truly care for one another and be in community. This new “Triad of Care” structure (originally developed by our good friends at Roosevelt Community Church in PHX), we believe, will help us connect and serve at Redemption Tucson. We believe in the priesthood of all believers and that we are all called to share the load of ministry. We all need to be known and needed, and this new structure allows us to do this in exciting ways.
Essentially Triads of Care are 3 family units committing to caring, serving, and pursuing one another. We are very excited to draw closer together as a community and to have the ability in these micro-groups to invite others in and be good news to the needy, lonely, and marginalized.
Questions and details:
What makes a Triad? Three household units. A household unit can be 1 single adult, or a married couple, or a family with children. So a triad of care can be 3 single adults, 3 married couples, or 3 families with children–or any combination of these!
What are the expectations of the Triad? 1. Have at least 1 weekly touchpoint for prayer and connection (this can be in person or online). 2. Make your needs known to one another and care for one another. 3. Welcome others from outside our community into the Triad if opportunities arise.
What if there is a need we cannot meet as a Triad? Simply fill out the care form HERE and the church will fill in gaps as we are able.
Who is in my triad? Two layers:
i. If you are in a Redemption Community (RC) your RC leader will be leading your group through how this will look. The most natural place for these triads of care to take place is within existing RC’s, essentially creating smaller communities of care within your RC.
ii. If you are not in a Redemption Community simply fill out the form below and leaders will reach out with next steps.
Can our Redemption Community still meet as a large group online? Yes, in fact please do!
What if I don’t know the people well in my Triad or I would rather make my own Triad? Church leadership will do their best to create healthy triads (based on geography, pre-existing relationships like RC’s, information on the form, and maturity), but the vision is not that these are your closest friends or deepest community–but it is how you can receive care and be part of community through your local church.
