New Life @ GRC

Overview (Grades 6–12)

New Life, 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). Our desire is that every teen has a relationship with God through Christ. We pursue spiritual formation with our teens through Bible study and teachings, apologetics, mentoring, mission trips and projects, and other special events.

Our Philosophy

Discipling teens in the covenant community.

Our Core Values

  • Biblical Education & Fellowship | Sunday School Hour
  • Cultural Engagement and Evangelism | New Life Friday (NLF)
  • Missions and Service

Biblical Education & Fellowship | Sunday School Hour

Sunday School meets on Sundays from 10 – 11 am. The core objective of the Sunday School hour is to impart Biblical truth to our youth and help them enjoy fellowship with God’s word.

Cultural Engagement & Evangelism | New Life Friday (NLF)


New Life Friday (NLF) meets every Friday of the year, from 7-9 pm, for middle school youth; the fourth Fridays of the month are for both high schoolers and middle school youth. The focus of New Life Friday is engagement with the culture around us and evangelism – and to have fun! Dinner is always served, and the evening includes musical worship, games, and an interactive lesson. 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 & Service

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 missions 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 have include partnerships with: New City Kids (Paterson, NJ), Open Door NJ/NY (West New York, NJ), Living Hope Church (Chicago, IL), and Jesus Presbyterian Church (Progreso, Mexico).
