Children and Youth
For a number of young people, Redeemer and Redeemer Center for Life provided them with their first opportunity on a college campus, first job, first organized sports team, the list goes on. Redeemer doesn’t just stop at firsts, but uses the first point of engagement to springboard into life-long relationships.
Young Adults at Redeemer engage freely in the full life of the congregation, contributing their gifts and offering their leadership in worship and their voices in the community. Redeemer has also created several spaces within the community that encourage young adults to connect, learn, and grow. Redeemer and Redeemer Center for Life have made a special effort to provide housing for young adults as well as opportunities to serve in the Harrison community. Young adults from Redeemer especially enjoy gathering for H-Cubed, a monthly open mic community event where art, poetry, music, and conversation around systemic issues are shared. Learn more about H-Cubed here.
Redeemer is committed to working for racial justice and equity. Redeemer hosts a monthly Black Lives Matter coalition meeting, which you can learn more about here. Redeemer also partners with Edina Community Lutheran Church and Westwood Lutheran Church to sponsor a monthly educational forum to discuss and engage the ways that race intersects with issues in our community. Read more about the conversations happening at this forum on our Race Forum Blog!
Once, every other month, the women of Redeemer join for conversation, laughter and pure joy. The women of Redeemer also host an Annual Women's Retreat each Fall. If you are interested in more information about the women's gatherings or would like to receive updates regarding Redeemer Women’s ministry, please contact the Women’s Ministry coordinator, Mali Jensen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
