Jubilee Farm outing! Sat. 10/5

Join us for our fall outing! On Saturday, October 5th, from 10am-Noon, we will be gathering at the Harvest Festival at Jubilee Farms, 229 W. Snoqualmie River Rd. NE, Carnation, WA 98014.  This is a free event, with food, crafts, and pumpkins for sale at the farm.  More information can be found at https://jubileefarm.org/harvestfestival/

Basket Weaving Fun, Sat. 10/12, 1-5pm

Our basket weaving fun(d)raiser last year was such a hit, we decided to offer it again! Please join us for an afternoon of weaving on Saturday, October 12th, from 1pm-5pm at the church.  Suggested donation is $50. All supplies and refreshments are included.

     Basket weaving is one of the oldest crafts known – but it is so much more than a cool craft! It is a wonderful way to connect the ordinary with the sacred as you notice the parallels with weaving and our life's journey. The act of weaving creates a space to share our stories and realize that we are connected - woven together in lots of different ways.

     This workshop, led by Kaila Russell, is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and experience God in a profound way. You will also have a beautiful basket, woven by you, to remind you of this step on your faith journey. No weaving experience is needed, just willing hands and heart.


Children's Sabbath, 10/20

Children's Sabbath activities are on Sunday, October 20th!  Our Interim Pastor, Cristina Airaghi, will lead during Worship w/our Youth!

Mission & Justice Power Packs 

Thank you to everyone that dropped off donations for the Weekend Power Pack project (a program of the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network)! This picture shows the 12 complete packs that will be delivered this week! The Mission and Justice committee is going to continue accepting donations throughout the fall as this is a real need in our community. Carnation Elementary alone distributes 65 Power Packs each Friday. So if you haven’t been able to donate there is still plenty of time!  (Weekend Power Packs are packages of food that are sent home on Fridays with children who may face food scarcity over the weekend.)

At this time our main needs for the next round of completed packs are: Drinks: shelf stable plain or chocolate milk, 100% juice apple, fruit punch, etc.; Breakfast items: individual cold cereal, instant cream of wheat (packets), breakfast drinks in individual bottles (shelf stable), protein/granola bars,  and not oatmeal at this times as we have plenty; Lunch items: Mac and cheese, hearty soups, beef stew, chili, tuna/cracker packs, chicken/cracker packs. If you are not able to go shopping but would like to help the cause, please see Becky Reimer or Debbie Leone and they can collect your money and shop for you. Questions? Please contact Becky Reimer. Thank you!!
