Help fight the spread of illness with information from the Snohomish Health District. Wash hands often with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer is good in a pinch, but doesn’t replace handwashing with soap and water. Keep hands away from mouth, nose or eyes to avoid transferring germs. Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces like counters, light switches, doorknobs, and remotes. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away and wash your hands. If you feel sick, stay home from work, school or other activities. Avoid close contact with others.

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. 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.
