Holy Week and Easter 2015

The People of the Church of the Redeemer welcome you to join us!


Redeemer is a Christian church in the Episcopal tradition. We are a part of the Diocese of Ohio which is part of The Episcopal Church which is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.


We invite you to  walk with Jesus through Holy Week and Easter. A schedule of services is below. We are a caring, welcoming group of Christians: some young, some older; some married, some single; some long time members, some very new. What we share is a commitment to loving God, loving our neighbors, and changing the world. You are invited to join us for worship any Sunday at 8 and 10 a.m. when we celebrate the Holy Eucharist (also called communion or mass). If you want to see how we serve our neighbors, come to our Community Hot Meal on the 3rd and 5th Thursdays of the month from 5-7 p.m. or help with First Lutheran Church's food pantry housed at Redeemer on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 10-11:30 a.m.
