The Artist's Place
The Artist's Place at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer serves as an arts ministry to the congregation and community by hosting art exhibits and art instruction. The arts, for both artist and viewer, are connected with spirituality and the religious in three ways. First, their power in expressing and creating meaning takes people out of the ordinary into sacred time and space where they can experience themselves and the world differently. Next, their power in evoking feeling and beauty opens a doorway into the joys and wonders created by God. Finally, creating and viewing art induces the same brain wave activity and body/mind changes as prayer and thus, can be a way of praying without words.

St. Francis Guild
Our mission is to promote the well-being of God's creatures and to honor the mutual bond that exists between animals and the people who love them. We do this through community outreach, education and awareness, and the offering of spiritual support to those in need. Our projects include: Sponsoring the St. Francis Pet Memorial Garden, a scattering garden for the ashes of and a living memorial to the pets we have loved and those who have loved us and the annual “Blessing of the Pets.”
We at Redeemer believe that everyone is constantly being formed into the image of Christ. Therefore, we need to "continue in the apostles' teaching and fellowship" as our baptismal covenant requires of us. Christ calls us to grow spiritually and to pass on what we know to others.
