Nave Renovations: December 15, 2016

The Vestry of Church of the Redeemer authorized signing of two contracts for renovations. The first contract is for the replacement of the flooring in the nave, sanctuary, and chapel. The second contract is for new seating in the nave. The plan is to be finished and back in the main building for worship by Easter Day.

Old pews and carpet

Flooring

The plan is for the current pews to be removed first. Then the flooring will be replaced. We are looking for a place that might be able to use the current pews.

New wood flooring will be put down over the tiles in the nave. There will be new carpet put down in the altar area, the chapel, and the stairs.

Pews

The new pews are custom made. They will allow us to be flexible in our worship space.

Temporary worship location during renovations

We will probably have worship services in the Education Building for a couple of months during the renovations.

If everything goes according to plans, we should be in our renovated space for Easter. Easter this year is April 16, 2017.

Remember our benefactor

John PearsonRemember John Pearson in your prayers. It was money that Church of the Redeemer received from his generous will that allows us to make these renovations.

Consider making your own donation to Church of the Redeemer in your estate planning.

O God, the King of saints, we praise and glorify your holy Name for all your servants who have finished their course in your faith and fear: for the blessed Virgin Mary; for the holy patriarchs, prophets, apostles, and martyrs; and for all your other righteous servants, known to us and unknown; and we pray that, encouraged by their examples, aided by their prayers, and strengthened by their fellowship, we also may be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

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 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.
