HOMEWORK HELP NEWS.   Homework Help has helped many young people through the years and for that, we may all give thanks to our Lord.  As public schools have begun more after school programs and as many middle schools and high schools have begun required (and, when not required, "highly encouraged") after school and preparatory programs, it is important for us at Redeemer to remain responsive to the changing needs of people in our neighborhood.  As such, the Executive Board of Homework Help, after prayer and research, has decided to take Homework Help in a different direction.  Instead of offering a set time in the week for a fixed number of hours of tutoring and assistance (like Mondays from 3PM to 6PM), we are offering tutoring on a needs-basis for people who require it.  Appointments with tutors will be made by inquiring students and family members at times that are mutually convenient.  In this way, Redeemer is still making tutoring available but is also responding to the changing needs of those in our neighborhood.  If you or someone you know is in need of tutoring or academic assistance, please contact the parish office (718.324.1288 or, Barbara Workman, LuJuana Butts, Jeanette Coulthurst, Melvin Butts, Deaconess or Pastor.


AN AUGUST FRIDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS.  A Friday morning class at 10AM is being offered at Redeemer on August 12.  The topic will be the “Purpose of Holy Week” and includes a video.


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is August 21-28 from 9AM to 12Noon.  Register today!
