Getting started | Schedule | Description


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 — in our work, relationships, and neighborhoods.

In each of these areas, every Christian is called to make disciples and bring renewal.

East Side Formation Classes are organized around practices that fuel gospel identity and around Christian callings — and you get to grow with others! To take a next step in your spiritual formation, we encourage everyone to participate in our core seminars and classes.

Please contact the Formation team with your questions at esformation@redeemer.com.

Class Description

Intro to Redeemer East Side
Learn about the history and vision of Redeemer East Side, get acquainted with our ministries and opportunities, and dialogue with East Side staff and other congregants. This core seminar will be offered periodically during the year to help you get connected with our church and community.

Intro to Spiritual Formation

A practice is a repeated activity that trains a Christian's instincts and impulses so that we are able to engage in all of life in the manner of and with the mission of Christ. How are we incorporating devotion, worship, accountability, hospitality, and rest into our everyday lives? This core seminar will be offered periodically during the year to deepen understanding of spiritual practices as a means of spiritual formation.
