Learn about our Vision

Redeemer Downtown has launched a new congregation — Downtown LAB (DT LAB)  — in the Madison Square Park neighborhood.

Our new Downtown congregation meets on Wednesday nights (7 to 8:30 p.m.) at Baruch College's Mason Hall (17 Lexington Ave, entrance on E. 23rd) and seeks to serve and connect with a community that's not familiar with church or is looking for a fresh worship experience. LAB invests deeply in the lives of its congregants to see them flourish spiritually and equips them to live out the gospel in their relationships, workplaces and neighborhoods. 

Meet Us Here


As the name LAB connotes, our new congregation is not church as usual. We seek to innovate, try new things and create a community and worship space that is inviting to a wide variety of people and backgrounds. LAB has opportunities for everyone to hear the gospel message and worship with modern music, and regularly offers a Spotlight feature to focus on a guest performer, artist, or mercy and justice cause. We invite you (and your family and friends!) to join us as we discover new ways to experience the gospel and enhance the lives of everyone in the Madison Square Park neighborhood. 

Forming community and training together
To prepare for LAB's official launch (Wednesday, November 28), the team had a series of prayer walks every Wednesday night during the summer. In the fall, Redeemer Downtown focused on an eight-week Catalyst series during the 5 p.m. service. Each week during this series, the pastoral team gave a Catalyst Talk on a specific theme related to our core values, with staff-led discussions after service. All this helped prepare the Downtown congregation with the opportunity to be trained through a Gospel in Life curriculum, in order to form a new community.

On Wednesday, November 7, LAB hosted a Vision Night, where the core team discussed their hopes for the new congregation and gave the congregation a taste of worship. For Soft Launch (Wednesday, November 14), gospel and R&B singer Liz Vice led worship and also gave a special performance while sharing her journey as an artist. The Official Launch opened with hip hop/rapper Genaro Ortiz and featured a Spotlight on Hope for New York and Restore NYC.

Want to be part of the team?
We're always looking for Redeemer Downtown congregants who are committed to serving this neighborhood and would like to make LAB their home congregation. If you are prayerfully considering joining LAB and feel that God is calling you to be a part of this congregation, we'd love to hear from you. See our Serve with LAB page for opportunities.
