Our Services

What are services like?
Redeemer offers a relaxed but traditional sung mass on Sunday at 10:00am and a contemplative said mass on Wednesday at 6:15pm. We use music from many eras and from around the globe. Organ, guitar, piano, brass, and our voices blended together - all shape the music in this place. Our music director, musicians and choir all work to prepare the very best in Christian worship music. To some, our worship is very formal. To others, it seems rather informal. But at Redeemer THE MASS MATTERS. Sometimes a little incense and some Chant; other times fast-paced global music with non-traditional sermons. In any case - always a whole lot of God! And at Redeemer, coffee/tea/juice after Sunday mass is a part of our morning. Make it a part of yours.

What is the community like?
Redeemer is growing in our diversity - and in number. We are a smaller faith community in a transient area, with a heart for the people around us. Our parish is welcoming, inclusive, quirky, hopeful and centered in Christ. We know what it's like to "live on the edge," so we handle life as it come to us, trusting that God is present. There is room for you here!

What if I'm not a Christian?
As a progressive Christian commuity we acknowledge God at work in the world in a variety of ways and expressions. We maintain great ecumenical relationships with other churches, and share common ground with our Turkish Muslim neighbors.

What Members Say Add your voice

  • I grew up in a large congregation and often felt like the "small fish in a big pond" but at Redeemer, I feel a part of everything, and friends with everyone. I feel at once joined to the past through the patterns of the liturgy and the church year, and to the present through the wonderful, relevant homilies. Patty
