During the Season after Pentecost, Liturgical Arts at Church of the Redeemer needed discern where to focus artwork. This riddle needed to be solved: “what is the common theme for the season for artwork?” There is a simple answer. There isn’t one common theme!
However, Liturgical Arts found one common therme for artwork during this season.
Mission in the World has been a focus of the people at Church of the Redeemer through the years. This includes all ministries and services funded by the Earley Outreach Fund. Liturgical Arts has hung artwork for some of these past ministries on the side aisle where we worship on Sunday:
- Page Ahead. A picture of a volunteer working with the books.
- Capitol Hill Community Resource Center (Sisters Project). A picture of volunteers serving Community Lunch.
- United Way Community Resource Exchange: Homeless Footwashing Project of Church of the Redeemer. A picture of a volunteer washing the feet of a client.
- Internship at Mosoj Yan in Bolivia. A picture of Missionary Breanna Overton with the young women participating in her swim program.
- Summer day camp at Iglesia de la Resurrección in Mount Vernon, Washington. A picture the 2014 camp of the children beginning the day.
- Hopelink Kenmore Shelter for Families. There are multiple pictures:
- Children at the shelter playing at Redeemer while their parents were taken for Christmas Shopping.
- Delivering Christmas presents to the shelter on December 24
- Packing Thanksgiving food baskets for the shelter.
- Hopelink Food Bank in Kirkland. A picture showing items being unloaded from a volunteer’s car.
The artwork selected represented a wide variety of outreach activities and participants. Not all activities of the Early Outreach Fund were covered in Mission in the World.
There are plans to update the artwork later in the summer. It will have pictures showing current needs in the community that may be the subject of future outreach projects.
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
