IMAGINE

Being hungry and unable to feed yourself---

Being thirsty and unable to hold a glass of water---

Being difficult to understand when having something to say---

Being completely dependent on others for your care and survival.

This is the reality that Skipper Roberts, one of our church members, faces every day.

At least four ADDITIONAL volunteers are needed so Skipper can continue attending our church. We hope to have enough people so each will be scheduled only every 5-6 weeks. Helping him entails: arriving at the church between 9:30 and 9:45; assisting him with snacks after the service; waiting with him after church until the Access Bus arrives, usually between 11:15 am and 11:45 am.

These things are not difficult. It is an opportunity to put your faith into action by “Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Please volunteer to help with Skipper. Sign up on the Making Connections or contact Marcia French at 425.451.0186 for more information. Thank you!

 

Do you love to bake, but don’t because you are afraid you will eat all of those cookies yourself? Well, we have the answer for you. Bake for the Crossroads Feeding program – cookies, brownies, etc. We would love to have your donation. We serve every 4th Monday of the month.  If you would like to help, please call Linda Dutt at 425.869.2376. Thank you!

 

Pop Up: Faith and Gun Violence

Sunday, November 5th, 11:30 am – 1 pm, Wesley Room

In the spring of 2016, PBS aired a two-night town hall event that examined gun violence in the United States, and whether there is a Christian obligation to do more to stem this rising tide of violence across the country. We’ll watch the movie, then discuss what we as United Methodists are called to do. Bring a friend interested in this topic! This is sponsored by RWelcomeMAT.

 

Prayer Chain Communicator: We’d like to start a prayer chain, a group of people actively praying for the concerns of our congregation. But, before we do that we need someone to communicate with the Prayer Chain members. This is simple. Collect prayer requests from the box and the office once a week, and send out an email to the Prayer Chain members asking them to pray. Please use Making Connections to let us know if you might be willing to help in this way!

 

Want to be a Roamer and ensure that facility provides Safe Sanctuary? We could sure use your help! Being a Roamer is such a simple task: Check on the Sunday School classes and the nursery during the service and lend a hand if needed. Roamers, ideally, would help out once every two months. But, we first need more Roamers! Please use Making Connections to let us know if you want to be a Roamer, or see Laurie Edwards.
