Gasoline rationing during World War II prompted a group of Episcopalians to start Church of the Redeemer at the north end of Lake Washington.

First Sunday Bulletin for Redeemer

This chronicle of the first 50 years of Redeemer was put together by the Youth Group in 1996-1997. It outlines the church’s beginnings as a mission that met in homes and later in the Lake Forest Park Civic Club before moving to its current location in Kenmore.

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.
