Greening of the church party

There will be several fun activities during the annual greening of the church. There will be even more fun this year, as it will take place on two days!

Part one is Sunday, December 18, when the following happens after the 10:30 service:

  • Create cookie baskets for our neighbors at Hopelink Kenmore Place
  • Install the tree, creche, wreaths, and garland

Part two is Friday, December 23, when the fresh greens will be installed at 10:00 am.

Decorating the tree

Part one on December 18

Hopelink Kenmore Place Christmas cookie baskets

People from Church of the Redeemer are again making homemade Christmas cookies for our neighbors at Hopelink Kenmore Place. We need about 24 dozen homemade cookies to give every family a cookie basket. There are two ways you can help.

Baking party at Redeemer

Join us at 12:00 noon on Sunday, December 18, in the Redeemer kitchen for an afternoon of baking, decorating, and assembly. Treats, cookie makings, and cheesy Christmas music will be supplied.

We only need you to join in the fun.

Bring cookies to Reedemer

If you are one of those super-organized types that has finished your baking, we’re taking donations. Drop off your cookies labeled “Kenmore Place” on Sunday, December 18. These will be added to baskets with cookies from the baking party.

If your recipe contains allergens, such as nuts, please note them on the label. Sturdy cookies that keep well work better for this project than delicate ones.

Install the tree, creche, wreaths, and garland

While others are baking cookies, you can be setting up Christmas decorations.

On Sunday, December 18 after the 10:30 service, we’ll put up the tree in the parish hall, the creche in the nave, and various wreaths and garland.

Hanging the ornaments

Part two on December 23

There is more greening of the church fun on Friday, December 23. Starting at 10:00 am, the fresh cut greens will be installed in the nave. This way they will be fresher through the Christmas season.


Church of the Redeemer

Community life at Redeemer centers on worship in the Episcopal traditionArt and music vitally deepen this worship. Our faith expresses itself with service to people, locally to internationally.

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.
