Once again, people from Church of the Redeemer and Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church hosts a Christmas shopping trip for the parents at Hopelink Kenmore Place on Saturday, December 10, 2016. During the shopping trip, we host a party for the children in the parish hall.
Whether you are driving the parents or caring for the children, please be at Redeemer by 9:45 am. Be very flexible with times. The families drift in between 10:00 am and 11:00 am.
There are sign-up sheets for these activities posted on the volunteer bulletin board :
- Drivers. These people take the parents to a local store for the shopping trip.
- Babysitters and craft projects. Everyone signing up for child care needs to bring a craft project or game for the children.
Santa visits the children at 11:00 am. Lunch is provided for all families and volunteers at 12:00 noon.
Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church
The people of Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church are on a journey to build a vibrant, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled community of faith that serves as a witness to the love God has for us all. Just as the Holy Apostles were called by Christ to spread the “Good News” to all people, so is the vision of our parish to share the Gospel of Christ with one and all. We are a sacramental, life-changing church. At Holy Apostles, we strive to develop a life of prayer and to grow meaningful, honest relationships as we care for those around us.

Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 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.
