There will be several open houses where visitors can come and meet and reminisce. Some, but not all, of the homes will be homes that were once part of the “Household” era at Redeemer. This is an opportunity to stop by and revisit a place where you once lived or to visit with people you once lived with. Closer to February 26th we will have a list of homes Feel free to move around and visit more than one open house. Please be sensitive to your hosts and leave at 9:00 p.m. All of the hosts will have heavy responsibilities the next day in the Celebration Service.
