In May of 2017, Redeemer officially became three smaller, neighborhood-based churches on the East Side, the West Side and Downtown and as God provides, we plan to add more local worship sites in new neighborhoods. On Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, the West Side launched Redeemer Lincoln Square. In 2018 Redeemer Downtown launched a new site—meeting on Wednesday nights—Downtown LAB, and in fall 2019 Redeemer East Side plans to launch a new East Harlem worship site. Please consider giving generously to the Redeemer family of churches and ministries so that we can continue to support the growing needs of ministering and serving the gospel movement God is growing in neighborhoods across New York City.


2019 Giving and Expenses

Redeemer Downtown's giving goal for 2019 was $3.9MM. Below, you will see our 2019 giving and expenses.

Our total giving for the year was $4.33MM which exceeded our giving goal by $430K and puts us in a stronger financial position as we begin 2020. Going into the month of December, our giving trailed expenses by $600K. The gold box shows a breakdown of our expenses by category. "Office & Sunday Rent" is the rent we pay both for our office space on 46th street and our Sunday worship services at The Salvation Army”. "Central Services & Central Ministries" includes HR, Finance, IT, Design, Video, CFW and Redeemer Counseling Services.


What does holistic generosity look like?

The first community of Christians in the book of Acts were radically generous with their possessions — because of their newly found boldness and fearlessness that came out of an assurance in Christ’s love. It was the quality of their generous community that demonstrated and proved the reality that the gospel changes lives.

At Redeemer we want to model a community of Christians who live sacrificial lives of generosity across many fronts. From opening our homes to others to forgiving those who hurt us, generosity takes many forms. Of course, this includes sacrificial giving — stewardship of your finances. Paul was talking about money when he wrote, “Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

Nevertheless, as you see, financial giving is not the only kind of generosity we need poured out at Redeemer. In fact, for many of us living and working in this busy city, the giving of time to foster new relationships or to serve in a ministry routinely may even be the more challenging form of generosity. Whatever your sacrifices would be in living a more generous life for God and for others, we invite you to consider a holistic approach that includes being generous through service to ministries, through relationships, through hospitality, through the privileges and power we hold, and lastly, through our wealth.
