Foot Soul Team

Emily Austin at Community Resource Exchange 2016

The Foot Soul Team is a steering committee to organize foot washing annually at the United Way of King County’s Community Resource Exchange. This ministry, which started at Church of the Redeemer, has participants from many regional faith communities today.

Community Resource Exchange

The last Community Resource Exchange took place on March 9, 2017, at CenturyLink Field Event Center, East Hall. People who are homeless were connected with essential hygiene items and services. This included haircuts, housing help, and mammograms. Those services barely scratched the surface of the impact this event had.

This is the 2017 Community Resource Exchange impact:

  • 1,125 people served
  • 130 service providers
  • 513 volunteers

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.
