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.

Fellowship Groups:

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 25.  Visit the Sunday school page for opportunities.

Want to see what's happening?  Take a look at the calendar.  If you are interested in the activities of a certain group, please click on the links under "Fellowship Groups" above.
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.

All questions or comments regarding Youth and Family Ministry may be addressed to Rhonda Rossi and Corine Borrero:, 973-584-6300 ext. 5.
