Catalyst Classes

Catalyst 101 | Catalyst 201 | Catalyst 301 | Catalyst 401 | Catalyst 501

Catalyst is a five-class series that begins with Catalyst 101 and ends with Catalyst 501. These discipleship classes are taught by members of our Pastoral team and are great opportunities to grow in community at LSQ as well as in your knowledge of the Bible and theology.

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen." — 2 Peter 3:18 (NIV)

Catalyst 101: Heart, Community, World

Class Information

Catalyst 101 is an eight-week class that takes place each fall from September through November. It's led by our Pastoral team and is designed for those, who are new to our church, to grow in community and discuss the gospel and how it's lived out in all of life. Furthermore, this class has also been the catalyst for new Community Groups; so if you're not currently in a CG, this is a great way to plug in and then consider joining a CG when the class wraps.

By participating in Catalyst 101, you will:

  1. Meet others in the Redeemer LSQ community and get to know our pastors
  2. Engage with Redeemer’s theology of ministry
  3. Innovate ways to serve your neighbors in New York City

The next Catalyst 101 class will take place in Fall 2022.

Catalyst 201: Spiritual Disciplines & Practices

Class Information

Catalyst 201 is an eight-week class led by our Pastoral team. It's designed to follow Catalyst 101 and has a focus on spiritual practices. Over the course of eight weeks, you will explore various spiritual disciplines and how to practically apply them in your own life.

We had planned to offer this class in Jan 2022, but due to lower registration, we've canceled it for now. We will update this page and other communication channels when this class is offered again. Questions? Email [email protected]

Catalyst 401: Culture and Worldviews

Class Information

Catalyst 401 (previously known as Catalyst 302) is a nine-week class led by our Pastoral team. Participants will discuss how culture relates to worldviews, creation, sin, and the Kingdom. We'll also dive into topics like identity, sexuality, politics, race and more.

Catalyst 501: Understanding Our Culture

Class Information

Catalyst 501 is a new, eight-week class led by Pastor Michael, exploring the cultural narratives of our society (ex: identity, freedom, happiness and power). These storylines and themes are propagated in culture as simple truths. They are deeply influential cultural values, images, and symbols that give people their understanding of themselves and reality. They are not actual arguments but rather deeply held assumptions, taken-for-granted givens, “just the way things are." We hope you'll join us as we use God's Word to guide us during our times together.
