Thank you for school supplies

Thank you to everyone for your generous donations for the Hopelink Kenmore Place Back to School Drive! Eighteen backpacks were filled with school supplies and delivered to Kenmore Place on Monday, August 30, 2022, in time for the school year. Because of you, these 18 students, ranging from preschool to high school, will start the year off on equal footing with their peers.

If you have any feedback on how the process worked this year, please email Susan Switzer at

Church of the Redeemer

Welcome to Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

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. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
