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.

Class descriptions


East Side Classes are a great opportunity for you to explore or deepen your faith. Consider attending one of the following classes.

Winter Term 1 Classes, January 11 - February 1


Gospel in Life

Instructors: Paul Dedewo, Deborah Fung and Tarina Hesaltine

Room 506, Hunter West Building, Cost: $5, Register here

What would our city look like if faith fueled our everyday lives? How can living the message of Jesus right here and right now shape our view of society? Join us for an eight-week video-based study and small group discussion where you’ll learn how the gospel can change your heart, your community, and how you live in this world.


Discovering my Ministry

Instructors: Andi Brindley and Lyn Cook

Room 507, Hunter West Building

Do you every wonder, “How can God use me?” God did not design ministry for just a few with seminary degrees. God designed you with your spiritual gifts, your abilities, your personality and your experiences to bring flourishing to others, your church, and in you. We will learn how spiritual gifts, personality types, and even our weaknesses guide us to discover how we are made to serve God. Let the gospel guide you to a ministry you really care about, so that you love to serve.


Marriage & Family

Instructor: Dr. Brent Bounds

North Glass Café, Hunter West Building, Cost: Free

This class will discuss pertinent issues every family faces at some point. The class will be interactive and practical so don’t miss out on this enriching time as a parent community. Fall classes will follow Paul Miller’s book on prayer, ‘A Praying Life.’


Christian Apologetics

Instructor: Craig Ellis

Room 508, Hunter West Building, Cost: Free

Are there answers to the most common objections to the Christian faith? Join us as we explore such topics as evil and suffering, heaven and hell, and science and faith. Each class is a short lecture followed by lots of discussion about how Christianity offers a coherent, relevant, satisfying response to these crucial issues. So come with questions!


These single-session classes will be offered throughout the year.


Intro to Redeemer

Hunter West Building, Cost: Free, Register here (lunch included)

Do you want to learn more about Redeemer’s vision and how we serve and minister to the city? Are you new to Redeemer or looking to get more involved? Come hear from Redeemer leaders, ask questions, and meet others over lunch. This is also the first step to becoming a member at Redeemer.
