Redeemer Presbyterian Church:

Renewing the city socially, spiritually and culturally

East Side Classes

There are many ways at Redeemer to grow in the knowledge of God. One particular way is to participate in our East Side Classes on Sunday mornings, afternoons and evenings. Time and time again, the New Testament writers encourage their readers to grow in faith with their minds. Exhortations such as, “Set your mind on things above” (Colossians 3:2) and, “be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2) compel us to know Jesus and to know the gospel in its depths within our lives.

Redeemer believes that growth in one’s faith is a holistic growth. Therefore, we are excited to offer various classes on the East Side in three areas: biblical knowledge, spiritual renewal and mission. Join us as we wrestle through important and difficult topics that are sure to help you grow in your understanding of God, whether you are exploring Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for years. Please contact Aaron at if you have any questions.

In a city that never sleeps, we can become overwhelmed with busy schedules and heavy workloads. For the Christian, a “survival skill” for living fruitfully is the practice of daily relational time with God. Come and re-think quiet times in your life. There will be an optional follow up class to discuss the progress of your daily devotional time with God after having taken the class.
