North Seattle Winter Shelter Dinner

As part of Kenmore Bothell Interfaith Group (KBIG), people from Church of the Redeemer will provide dinner for the North Seattle Winter Shelter on December 23, 2017. We will do much of the cooking on December 22, and assemble and deliver the food on December 23.

There are opportunities available at different times and ways to offer help. Sign up online or in the parish hall.

The shelter guests are outdoors all day in cold temperatures. Many of them walk miles each day. We have been asked to plan generous portion sizes and to offer items that guests can take with them when they leave in the morning.

We need volunteers who are available at these times and places:

  • Friday, December 22, 2017

Other ways to help

Even If you cannot help with preparing or delivering the meal, there are other ways for you to help with the shelter dinner:

  • Prepare a homemade dessert for dinner. These can be cookies, pies, or cakes.
  • Provide breakfast items that store well and are portable. These items work well:
    • Bananas
    • Doughnuts
    • Energy or breakfast bars
    • Bagels and cream cheese
    • Individual-sized yogurts
    • Hard boiled eggs in shells

To drop off a dessert or breakfast item, please label it “Winter Shelter” and drop it off at the Redeemer kitchen by 3:00 pm on Saturday, December 23. The shelter usually hosts about 40 people, and including volunteers. The shelter serves dinner to 50 people.

Seattle Mennonite Church

Seattle Mennonite Church is an active Anabaptist Mennonite Christian congregation working faithfully at following Jesus in our urban context. As disciples of Jesus, we believe faith and action are inseparable elements in each person’s pilgrimage. We are often welcoming new friends, and we aim to live out our calling to offer hospitality, whether for a morning or over the course of years. On Sunday mornings, we live this out through worship and fellowship time together, and opportunities for both adults and children to engage in formal and informal Christian education. The Adult Study hour following worship (September through May) ranges in topics from Bible or book studies to issues of faith and life to current events and politics.

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.
