OVERVIEW (GRADES 6-12)
Grace Redeemer’s Youth Ministry exists to bring the youth of Northern NJ into a life transforming encounter with the Kingdom of God. Our ministry is centered around the best news in the whole world: the gospel of Jesus Christ, which alone has the power to save (Rom. 1:16-17), and we want every teen to have a relationship with God through Christ. We pursue spiritual formation in our teens through Bible study and teaching, apologetics, mentoring, mission trips and projects, and other special events.
Discipling teens in the covenant community.

BIBLICAL EDUCATION AND FELLOWSHIP | SUNDAY SCHOOL HOUR
Meets on Sundays from 10 AM – 11 AM.
The core objective of the Sunday School Hour is to impart Biblical truth to our youth and help them enjoy fellowship over God’s word.
CULTURAL ENGAGEMENT AND EVANGELISM | NEW LIFE FRIDAY (NLF)
Weekly, Friday Nights 7 PM – 9 PM.
New Life Friday is every Friday of the year for Middle School (MS) youth and fourth Fridays of the month for both High School (HS) and MS. The focus of New Life Friday is on engaging the culture around us and evangelism. Dinner is always served, and the evening includes musical worship, games and an interactive lesson. Fourth Fridays are a time out for our youth. NLF is a place where our youth can bring their non-Christian friends to hear the gospel as well as strengthen their own faith in a fun and interactive environment.
MISSIONS AND SERVICES
Grace Redeemer Church is a church with a missional outlook. Our missions’ philosophy is gospel centered: gospel of the cross and gospel of the Kingdom. Participating in both local and long-distance mission trips reminds us that the work of the Great Commission begins right in our community and expands outwards. Some of our previous missions and service projects include partnerships with: New City Kids (Paterson, NJ), Open Door NJ/NY (West New York, NJ), Living Hope Church (Chicago, IL), Jesus Presbyterian Church (Progreso, Mexico).
