Redeemer Lutheran Church offers a wide-ranging Youth and Family ministry program designed to engage children and their families in the life of the church and support them in a life of faith at home.
There are currently three youth groups in the church: POPs (People of Promise) for grades 4-6, Alpha League for grades 7 and 8, and Luther League for high school youth grades 9-12.
Youth are encouraged to serve both the congregation and the community. There are many opportunities at Redeemer for students and their families to do this including working with Family Promise, Faith Kitchen, Midnight Run, Lutheran World Relief, Roxbury Social Services and Your Grandmother's Cupboard. Opportunities are highlighted monthly in group newsletters and in the newsletter of the church.
Parents are the best, most consistent role models for their children. Living a life of faith and raising young people of faith can be a daunting task. There are several free resources recommended to make this easier.
Redeemer offers Sunday school for ages 3 through high school. Visit the Sunday school page for opportunities.

There are many opportunities to support Redeemer's Youth Program. The youth sell ShopRite giftcards each week along with decorating and selling wreaths each November. There is also an annual rummage sale in June and a very lively silent/live auction and dinner after Easter.

Dear Youth Groups:
The skate night was postponed due to weather. As we are in the season of Lent, the event will most likely re-appear after Easter. Be on the look-out!

Things are really hopping with LWR school kit donations! Our focus now should be on pencil sharpeners and notebooks as we are under 75% of our goal with those items and still in the back to school sales frame! See updated totals here!
