Classes and Seminars
We live in a time of unprecedented access to books, online classes, and podcasts from experts and thought leaders on any topic. While this is exciting, we know we weren’t made to go it alone. We want to engage with others as we learn, especially when it comes to our faith.
At Redeemer East Side, we offer a range of classes designed to help you grow spiritually as you connect with others. These classes are taught by Redeemer pastors and staff who are passionate about equipping you to follow Christ’s call where you live, work, and love. We hope to see you in class soon!

Intro to Spiritual Formation
Register | Select Sundays: April 2, June 4, August 6 at 11:15 am at Temple Israel Room 65
At Redeemer East Side, we believe that the gospel makes its way deeper into our hearts and transforms our lives through the ordinary practices we engage in, the community we embrace, and by living out the callings God has given us. This core seminar will be offered periodically during the year to deepen your understanding of spiritual formation.

Sunday Bible Study: Making Sense of the Christian Scriptures
Register | Sundays at 11:15 am at Temple Israel Room 64
The Bible can be overwhelming whether you've been a Christian for a while or you're just curious about God's word. In this Sunday Bible study, bring your pen, paper and your questions. We'll come together to walk through God's word, and gain tools to see what God is revealing in his Scriptures. Together, we'll better understand how it all fits together and points to Jesus.
Introduction to Neighborhood Advocacy
Register | Sunday, March 12-April 23 (breaking Easter) at Temple Israel Room 65
Scripture is filled with commands to love one's neighbor. With such an importance for the Christian, how do we live out this everyday Biblical obedience in our own home of New York City? Come learn with your fellow congregants big-picture takeaways from Scripture, and how to understand the practicalities and implications of being a Christian neighbor.
Register | Saturday, May 13 at W83 Ministry Center
Getting married? Just considering it? Plan on attending Redeemer’s Premarital Seminar. You don’t have to be engaged to participate in the seminar. Even if you’ve just begun considering the possibility of marriage, this is a powerful way to discover whether you should continue in your relationship. This seminar is a lively day of biblical teaching on marriage, exercises that help a couple learn more about each other, and ending with a time of Q&A. This seminar is required if you wish to have a Redeemer pastor officiate at your wedding.
