We hope to be back soon with full offerings, but here's a selection of our online classes.
Intro to Spiritual Formation
Register | June 14 at 1:15 p.m. online
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. This core seminar will be offered periodically during the year to deepen your understanding of spiritual formation.
Missional Moments Q&A
Zoom Link | May 14 - June 18 at 7-7:30 p.m. online
Our days have become a blur, and many sense a need for rhythms that will help us emerge from this season transformed. Missional Moments is a weekly Q&A with Senior Pastor Abe Cho and the East Side pastoral team, who will respond to your questions about the five transformative practices that draw us to God and send us into the world. We are calling them practices of PEACE, an acronym which stands for Pause, Eat, Ask, Commune, and Examine.
- May 14: Pause
- May 21: Eat
- May 28: Ask
- June 4: Shalom in the Face of Racial Injustice (special topic)
- June 11: Commune
- June 18: Examine

Register | June 7 at 8-9 p.m. online
COVID-19 has changed our world in many ways, especially our interactions with families, friends and even ourselves. In this workshop, we will explore ways to counsel ourselves when we are feeling anxious, uncertain, depressed, angry, or other concerning emotions. Through the practical application of scripture and prayer in specific circumstances, you will understand God and your own heart in new ways. Led by Lois Kehlenbrink, a counselor of 20+ years.
Learning to Be an Anti-Racist (offered through Redeemer East Harlem)
Register | Thursday, June 11-July 2 at 8 p.m. online
As the body of Christ, we are grieved over the cycles of racial inequality and injustice that continue to pervade our society. In response, we want to proactively equip our congregants to have a long-term, holistic approach to addressing racism at the systemic level. Justin Adour, pastor of Redeemer East Harlem, will be teaching a four-week class to help us better understand how to move past a simple acknowledgment that racism is evil to learning what it means to become a proactive anti-racist.
Please note, we are asking participants to engage with resources outside of class. We are asking registrants to buy five books watch a few videos (REH has committed to helping our congregants purchase materials as needed). Though the completion of these resources is not required, they will greatly enhance your understanding of the issues.
Books to Purchase
- Week 1: The Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby
- Week 2: Divided by Faith by Michael Emerson + Christian Smith
- Week 3: I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown, White Awake by Daniel Hill
- Week 4: TBD
Registration is now closed, but we encourage you to continue learning with our Self Counseling workshop. As we discussed in the last Relationship Forum on conflict, it is necessary to better know ourselves in order to engage in loving relationships in healthy and restorative ways.
