SUNDAYS 9:00-10:00 am (Beginning September 10, 2017 through May 2018 )
Throughout Scripture, God reminds His people that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord with all our hearts, souls, and minds, and our neighbors as ourselves. The Bible also makes clear that this love is the natural outpouring of true knowledge of God.
Our mission in the Christian education programs at Redeemer echoes Paul’s in Philippians, that our “…love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment.”
We seek to glorify God and encourage growth in our church family by teaching and nurturing His people. Beginning with our youngest children and continuing through our adult programs, we seek to prepare our members to go out and live the Gospel in their individual worlds.
OUR COVENANT CHILDREN
We at Redeemer know that the whole of Scripture reveals Christ to His people. And we desire that our children learn early to see God’s Word as a whole – from the great stories of Bible heroes to the life of Christ and the early church.
Classes are divided into these age groups:
- Smalls (ages 5-10, K-4th)
- Mediums (5th-6th graders)
- Larges (7th-12th)
Bible Snapshots: We introduce our young children to Bible stories from the Old and New Testament.
Westminster Shorter Catechism: Continuing our long-time tradition of studying and memorizing the catechism, we are spending time discussing the truths in the catechism and playing memory games to help students memorize each week’s questions.
Completion of “Open My Eyes” Bible study, followed by “Your Word is Truth”: a study of seeing all of life through the lens of Scripture.
Our greatest desire is to be a wise body of believers loving one another as Christ has loved us. Therefore, our adult education program offers a variety of classes in any given year to help us know God better and encourage one another. Classes range from Scriptural studies to topical themes. These classes, open to high schoolers and adults, provide an opportunity for discussion and interaction.
- “Emotional Health and Christian Maturity” (2-4 weeks)
- “A Look at Martin Luther’s Life & Teachings” (4-6 weeks)
- “Advent and Our Wait for Jesus” (4 weeks)
