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.

Fall Term Classes, September 28 - December 14


Change and Your Relationships, a Mess Worth Making

Instructor: Lois Kehlenbrink

Room 506, Hunter West Building, Cost: $20 for workbook and printed materials, Register here

This curriculum will challenge participants to develop a radically biblical understanding of relationships. It identifies the deeper issues that make relationships less or more than they are designed to be and gives practical direction on how to resolve conflicts, have difficult conversations, grant forgiveness, overlook weaknesses, and celebrate strengths. It is straightforward about the relational disappointments that we all suffer, but also optimistic about the power of grace to redeem and restore our relationships.
Workbook: Change and Your Relationships, a Mess Worth Making, by Paul Tripp and Tim Lane


Faith and Finance

Instructor: Center for Faith & Work

Room 507, Hunter West Building, Cost: $119, Register here

This 7-week class explores ways the gospel intersects with our calling as finance professionals. We deepen our understanding of a Christian worldview for finance, discuss the ways in which the gospel challenges common industry idols, explores what Scripture has to say about the tensions inherent in our work, and brainstorm innovative ways to change the way finance operates. We'll explore these three topics: 1) Created to Work, 2) Loving our Work, 3) Empowered to Work.


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 Tim Kimmel's study on overcoming our hectic lifestyle, 'The Hurried Family.'


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


God's Mercy, Our Compassion

Instructors: Jenny Chang & Diane Wenzler

Room 508, Hunter West Building, Cost: Free

Whether we realize it or not, there are opportunities every day to be an extension of God's mercy to others around us. What are some practical ways we can be the hands and feet of Jesus? What can motivate us to do this? In this class, we will explore together a biblical survey and meaning of God's mercy. A deeper understanding of God's mercy can lead to a greater desire to cultivate a lifestyle of compassion for others.
