“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).
The goal of the Children’s Ministry at Redeemer East Side 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, and facilitating spiritual growth among a new generation in New York City.
In addition to teaching children to live gospel-centered lives, the Children’s Ministry seeks 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.
