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
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 both newcomers and those feeling disconnected to grow in community and discuss the gospel and how it's lived out in all of life. 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:
- Meet others in the Redeemer LSQ community and get to know our pastors
- Engage with Redeemer’s theology of ministry
- 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
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 will update this page and other communication channels when this class is offered again. Questions? Email [email protected]
Catalyst 301: Introduction of Theology
Catalyst 301 is an eight-week class that provides a broad introduction to various theological topics within the framework of our reformed tradition. The next class offering is yet to be determined. Questions? Email [email protected]
Catalyst 401: Understanding Modern Cultural Narratives
Catalyst 401 (previously Catalyst 501) is an eight-week class led by our Pastoral team. Participants will explore the cultural narratives of our society (ex: identity, freedom, happiness and power). These storylines and themes are propagated 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.
The next class will begin Monday, March 28; it will run through Monday, May 23, skipping Monday, April 18. Questions? Email [email protected]
Catalyst 501: How to Engage Hot Topics
Catalyst 501 (previously known of Catalyst 302) is a nine-week class led by Pastor Michael that uses the content from the other Catalyst classes to shape our discussion around the questions and topics that we may face in everyday life — those that can be hard to know what to say or how to engage.
The next class offering is yet to be determined. Questions? Email [email protected]
