Church School

The church school meets on Sunday mornings from 9:30 am to 10:15 am while adults are in their class. Church of the Redeemer uses Godly Play for its curriculum in the church school. This explanation is from the Godly Play website:

Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!

All staff and volunteers in the church school program take part in the Safe Church program. This program teaches how to identify and prevent abuse within the church community. It is conducted several times per year, free of charge by the Diocese of Olympia. The training consists of three sessions: Safeguarding God’s Children, Safeguarding God’s People, and a new Anti-Racism program. Read more about the Safe Church Program.

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.
