Grace. Grow! Groups. Go!
Sundays @ 10:00am
Fitzpatrick Ballroom at the Jefferson Center

On the last Sunday evening in November 2006, thirty-five people gathered in Tom and Sherry Oster’s living room to discuss and pray over the planting of a new church in the Roanoke Valley. Two months later, Christ our Redeemer Church began to hold Sunday evening services in an auditorium at the Rehab Center of Carillion Memorial Hospital at the corner of McClanahan and Jefferson Street, where they worshipped for two years.

The church then moved in 2009 to worship on Sunday mornings at the Seventh Day Adventist Church on Memorial Avenue, where the church was deeply involved in the Grandin Village neighborhood. During this time, COR Groups began to grow and multiply, and the church family developed a focus on the gift of hospitality and welcoming people, which has always been a deeply important part of our church’s personality.

After a few years of worshipping in Grandin Village, COR moved to the location where we have worshipped for over a decade, five blocks from City Center. We meet every Sunday at 10am in the Fitzpatrick Ballroom at the Jefferson Center.

In April 2022, Tom Oster retired after 15 years of faithful pastoral ministry at COR. The church then called Bryce Stout to be pastor in December 2022. COR continues to be marked by faithful preaching of God’s Word, an emphasis on hospitality and welcoming, a commitment to discipleship ministry in small groups, and participation in God’s mission through being involved in our city, loving our neighbors, and declaring the gospel.
