West Side Children's Ministry


Dear Friend,

Thank you for your desire to learn more about Redeemer West Side Children’s Ministry. Our theme for Children’s Ministry is “A Gospel A City For Generations”. Our theme verse is Psalm 78:4, 6-7, "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."

In all that we do in Children’s Ministry we want to be imparting the Gospel to your children, that we would be “telling the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord”. It is our desire that from the time your children enter our ministry, they will experience and hear the Gospel of Christ. Whether through our loving staff and volunteers caring for your children, singing worship songs together, hearing Gospel centered teaching, or experiencing community with other children, we want your children to be excited to enter the doors of the W83 Ministry Center and learn more of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  

If you have questions or there is anything we can do to serve you and your family please contact one of our staff or email us at westchildren@redeemer.com.

With Joy and Gratitude,
 
Bethany Griffith

THE GOSPEL:

"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

                                                                                             
A CITY:

"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


FOR GENERATIONS:

"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 PURPOSE:

The goal of the Children's Ministry at Redeemer 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.
