Thanksgiving Baskets for Hopelink Kenmore Place

Members from Church of the Redeemer and Holy Apostles will again provide all the ingredients for a complete Thanksgiving dinner to the families at Hopelink Kenmore Place.

A poster listing all the food items will be posted on the Outreach bulletin board on Sunday, October, 29, 2017. Sign-up for your donations for the thanksgiving baskets there. We will take donations through Sunday, November 19, 2017. Leave perishable items in the refrigerator or freezer clearly marked “For Kenmore Place.”

There is a sign-up list for anyone who is able to help with thanksgiving basket delivery on Monday, November 20, between 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm. We need from six to eight volunteers to help deliver baskets. Since there is no elevator at the Kenmore Place, volunteers need to be able to climb three flights of stairs. We normally have two people for each basket.

If you have a question about thanksgiving baskets for residents at Kenmore Place, send an email to hkp@redeemer-kenmore.org.

Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church

Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church is 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 the parish to share the Gospel of Christ with one and all. They are a sacramental, life-changing church. At Holy Apostles, they strive to develop a life of prayer and to grow meaningful, honest relationships as they care for those around them.

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.
