Young Adult Service Corps
The Young Adult Service Corps is a ministry for Episcopalians ages 21-30 who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the worldwide Anglican Communion. Applicants must have a high degree of maturity and possess a faith commitment, the willingness to be a humble guest, and the ability to be an authentic companion.
Episcopal Volunteers in Mission
Is God calling you to go out into the world to “seek and serve Christ in all persons?” To meet neighbors you never knew you had?
If so, the Episcopal Volunteers in Mission program may be for you. Working with partners around the Anglican Communion, we offer opportunities to live, work, and pray alongside fellow Anglicans/Episcopalians around the world as you continue your own faith journey.
Open to Episcopalians ages 30+, Episcopal Volunteers in Mission invites you to build relationships, share your gifts and skills, listen to and learn from partners around the world, and be open to the personal transformation that comes from meeting God in new ways. Missionaries are lay and ordained, young and old. They serve as teachers, accountants, doctors, administrators, theologians, agriculturalists, chaplains, and much more.
If you’re interested in spending six months to a year in another part of the Anglican Communion, to walk alongside others and experience the richness of the global Body of Christ, consider serving as an Episcopal Volunteer in Mission.
Office of Global Partnerships
The ministry of the Office of Global Partnerships is to help “build bridges beyond ourselves”. We serve as a bridge for developing and nurturing relationships between The Episcopal Church and our partners around the Anglican Communion, our ecumenical and interreligious partners, and with organizations such as the United Nations and the National Council of Churches. We are a resource for congregations and dioceses as they develop and foster their own relationships around the world. We actively develop resources to strengthen and facilitate the global mission engagement of The Episcopal Church.
The Epiphany season is a season of four to nine weeks, from the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6) through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The length of the season varies according to the date of Easter.
The gospel stories of this season describe various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus.
- The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Epiphany.
- The Baptism of our Lord is observed on the Sunday after Epiphany.
- The gospels for the other Sundays of the Epiphany season describe the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and various miracles and teachings of Jesus.
- The Last Sunday after the Epiphany is always devoted to the Transfiguration.
Jesus’ identity as the Son of God is dramatically revealed in the Transfiguration gospel, as well as the gospel of the baptism of Christ.
We are called to respond to Christ in faith through the showings of his divinity recorded in the gospels of the Epiphany season.
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. 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. The campus is 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.
