All people who come to the Church of Our Redeemer are invited to take part in the Formation programs offered for children, youth, and adults. We seek to provide resources to nurture your faith journey. There are many ways to grow in your relationship with God in the Redeemer community and beyond:
Whether you are someone who grew up at Redeemer, or has just recently started attending regularly, we hope you will participate in our Christian Formation programs. Becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ is a process. A process that is never complete, but which continues throughout our entire lives.
Old models of Sunday School subscribed to a paradigm of Christian Information, where teachers transferred knowledge to students. Modern models urge us to begin by asking what the group wants to know, and then use the group’s existing knowledge or skills to help discover what they want to know. Christian formation is an on-going and ever-deepening process; thus, we believe in Christian Formation for all ages. Children, Youth and Adult Formation at The Church of Our Redeemer are all offered in a spirit of caring dedication to the idea that we learn from one another.
Much of our formation as Christians happens as a whole community, as we celebrate the Christian year together. Click HERE for a calendar of the major church dates of the year. We also take time for special kinds of learning; click HERE for the Fall 2022 dates for all ages.
Safety in all forms is very important for our work and life with children. In our Safe Church Policy for Children and Youth you can see our guidelines as well as the training required by those in leadership roles. Please reach out to Mtr. Emily García if you have any questions.
