West Side Childrens Ministry
Bethany Griffith was Children's Ministry Director from 2012 to 2014.
“It is our desire that children experience the gospel of Christ from the time they enter our ministry.”
It is our desire that children experience the gospel of Christ from the time they enter our ministry, whether through the loving care of our staff and volunteers, the message of gospel-centered teaching, or the community and worship with other children.
We want your children to be excited to enter the doors of the W83 Ministry Center to learn more of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In all that we do, we want to impart the gospel to your children, to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.”
With joy and gratitude,
Children's Ministry Director
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (Jeremiah 29:7).
“We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but keep his commands” (Psalm 78:4, 6-7).
Our goal is to encourage children to serve and renew their communities through the knowledge and application of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We work toward this goal by
- immersing them in Scripture
- teaching them how to pray and worship
- facilitating spiritual growth among a new generation in New York City
In addition, we seek to encourage and support families in their commitment to stay and engage the city by facilitating, discipling and offering practical support to them as they apply Redeemer’s values and beliefs to their families.
