    The Church of the Redeemer is a welcoming and caring community. Our congregation is curious and questioning. We have a history of social justice and outreach ministries, and lesbian and gay members are integral to our parish life. Worship is the heart of Redeemer’s life – it brings our family and church lives into one as we celebrate the liturgy, the word, and the sacrament together.
