You may have noticed our redesigned courtyard, the freshly weeded and mulched Redeemer Garden, and our cleaned and painted garages and houses! You may not have noticed how sparkling clean and ready for new LVC interns the Glenwood House is, or a number of youth helping Nestor Garcia move from the Glenwood House into a Milda's apartment.
All of this work and so much more was completed by the Kansas City Lutheran Youth Coalition (KCLYC) Missions Trips, a collaborative of 40+ senior high youth and their adult leaders who travel across the United States each summer to help congregations and communities like ours complete dream projects.
They came to us on Monday, July 9th, and gave Redeemer and Harrison Neighborhood four full days of hard manual labor to realize some long-needed restoration projects. The fruit of their labor is visible everywhere you look on the Redeemer Campus, and we are blessed to say these future leaders came to us will full and generous hearts ready to pour into our congregation and community!
Check out the photos and video below to learn more about what they did, and be sure to visit their Facebook Page to see more of the photos they took over the course of the week, and to THANK THEM for the tremendous gift of their presence and work here at Redeemer!
For the second year in a row, Redeemer was delighted to partner with the All in the Circle Creative Arts & Nature Camp to bring the arts & outdoors to North Minneapolis community kids. Over the course of two weeks of rain and sun, 46 campers adventured through Theo Wirth Park exploring, canoeing, and having a blast learning about beavers, bugs, and being responsible stewards of the earth. They enjoyed art classes with Redeemer's Artists in Residence Katherine Parent and Robert The Gentleman Artist, and music classes at The Living Room. The week culminated with a concert in which campers dressed up in beautiful camp-made costumes and staging and taught parents and supporters all about beavers through song and narrative. We can't wait for next year!
