DEDICATION OF BENCH IN MEMORIAL GARDEN


Several months ago, Nancy Beckemeyer’s nephew Liam Beckemeyer presented a request to fulfill his Eagle Scout project requirement here at Redeemer. The result is this wonderful outdoor seating area in our Memorial Garden (the garden to the right of the church as you face it). We dedicated this bench and seating area after the 9:30 service last Sunday. We then had refreshments, and enjoyed a fabulous tour of our gardens by Katie Price and Nancy Beckemeyer!

Our deepest gratitude to Liam, to his family, and to the members of Scout Troops Nos. 700 and 5700 who worked so hard in this installation.

By all means please come and rest on this wonderful teak bench, surrounded by the potted hyssop and other perennials, and God’s lovely creation.



Jean Reed Memorial Dedication at
Circle of Love

The family of Jean Reed and a few special friends joined Circle of Love staff on Monday in a prayerful dedication of the outdoor pavilion that bears her name. Located in the spacious garden area of the Center, the recently completed pavilion was made possible through generous donations to the church in Jean’s memory. The new structure provides much improved outdoor living space, offering a welcome and peaceful refuge for the Center’s residents. As we remember, Jean was a devoted and tireless advocate for the wellbeing of others, especially women seeking safe shelter, support and healing from domestic violence. The Circle of Love sends heartfelt thanks to all for this assistance.

Quilt Dedications

The idea of Redeemer Quilters began with a small group of ladies who wanted to pay tribute to our late dear friend, Jean Reed, who was faithful in serving a need for the Circle of Love. At Christmas that year we made three youth quilts of bright and novelty prints for the residents at COL in memory of Jean. When the COVID pandemic came along, so did the need for the Redeemer Quilters to get busy and use our quarantine time in a productive way for COL. We delivered fifty-six Mom and Youth quilts during that year to Circle of Love. Our next project would be colorful baby quilts and bibs to add to the Boutique Shop at First Call Pregnancy Center. The Moms can purchase the quilts/bibs using their earnings from classes taken at the center. The day we delivered to First Call a staff member commented that a larger form of the bib would be good for the residents at Green Point Nursing Home. We got busy and delivered 27 bibs to them in June. After fulfilling these needs, we reached out to the Head Start Program in Greene County. We will be delivering twenty-four youth quilts next week for the infant class (8), one-year class (8), and two-year class (8). We have planned a warm and comforting “blankie” as well as a teaching tool. Our plan is to assist in the parent meetings at the school to develop ways to use the quilt in providing sensory stimulation. These activities will nurture school readiness skills for success in the child’s next learning environment. This component is on hold temporarily due to the COVID restrictions. We will follow-up on this as soon as permitted.
We are extremely appreciative for the support given us by the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. ~ Carolyn White

– Written by Suzie Hudson and Mimi Vickers – Photographed by Jesse Walker At the end of North Main Street, through the quaint downtown district of Greensboro, sits a little red church – unassuming, yet stunning. Small but mighty, its parishioners would say. The stalwart sanctuary has occupied this city corner since the days of Reconstruction. It was the first, and has remained the only, Episcopal congregation in Greene County. This year, on June 14, the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer marked its 150th anniversary. Read More
