Parish Workparty, October 21, 2023

Do you enjoy gardening? Do you enjoy working with your hands? Do you feel the need to touch some grass? Do you want to be with friends, old or new? Come to our next Parish Workparty on Saturday, October 21, 2023.

Saturday’s workparty activities

We start with Morning Prayer at 9:30 am. After that, we enjoy some treats, usually around 10:00 am. Then, we will divide up to work on these and other activities: 

  • Prepare for worship and create arts.
  • Clean gardens for fall and winter.
  • Check roofs and drains.
  • Complete parish hall window wall repairs.

Work with others

There will always be someone to show you what to do and how to do it. No one is asked to do anything they cannot do.

If you are interested in gardening or maintenance tasks, feel free to bring tools to help. While we have some at the church, but could always use more. Yes, apartment dwellers probably won’t have these things. However, over the years Redeemer has gathered our odd collection.

You don’t sign up. You show up for as long as you can on October 21. In general, most people are finished around 12:00 noon.

Did we mention that treats are provided?

Here are some pictures from the Workparty at Redeemer on September 16, 2023. The next Workparty will have more inside activities for people.

Future workparties

If you were unable to help this month, you will have future chances to meet people and touch some grass. Ongoing maintenance and new programs at Redeemer have needs that you can help with at workparties.

Please contact Bill McGlinn if you have any questions, at

Plan to attend the this and the next workparty. Invite friends that might want to get out and do something with others.

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, reaching out to the world.

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.
