We have a new chance to support our neighbors at REST | Real Escape from the Sex Trade, just down Rainier Ave S, where they are preparing to welcome several new clients moving into their recovery house. You can sign up here to contribute furniture or housewares (both new and used items welcome) by June 3, or ongoing supplies that are always helpful: bit.ly/2XGb6Q9. Finding furnishings for our own Naomi Cotton House has always been a fun project, so let's extend that enthusiasm to others looking for a fresh start too! ... See MoreSee Less

Yes! We’re so thankful for your support!

His name was George Floyd. He was active in his community, especially in doing neighborhood outreach for his church. He was a son, a father, and by all accounts a good man - but even if he wasn't, he would be no less valuable in the eyes of God. For George Floyd was created in God's image, but died as if he wasn't.

We say his name as a way to remind us of this truth, and to spur us to lamentation, repentance, and then to action. Holy Spirit, on the eve of Pentecost, empower your church once again to be courageous, active, and loving ministers of the gospel of reconciliation.

Here's the link for worship together this morning: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVs6SsRdEgk
And, it's communion Sunday! You'll need bread and juice ready for that part of the service this week. Feel free to use bread, crackers, or anything similar you have in your home. We suggest placing the elements on a table before the service as part of preparing your space for worship. Pastor Peter will guide you through taking communion together. We are grateful to be able to remember Christ's death and resurrection for us together as a church family, even from a distance!

Hey, shout out to my wife, Delia, who took that picture. Paul

Awesome, heartfelt and beautiful service and every single component and participant to make this so meaningful. Thank you everyone from Pastor Peter down to the smallest unseen assistance. ❤️

I love this picture! It was taken by Delia at our daughter, Christy's, wedding at Gasworks park. It was a beautiful, hot summer day.

Today, the President stated that houses of worship are essential and called on governors to allow them to open immediately.

While we do agree that churches and other houses of worship are essential, we do not believe that opening our facilities is a wise course of action at this time. Doing so would contradict both guidance that we have received from the Pacific Northwest Conference, as well as from Washington State government. In addition, there are reports emerging that churches that have opened their doors have unknowingly facilitated the spread of COVID-19, even after implementing distancing measures (see attached article).

So at this time, we are still not going to open church for public services. Our plan at this point is to wait for clear guidelines from our state and denominational leaders, and using those guidelines, develop a staged plan for re-opening that would be approved both by our Board of Administration, as well as the medical professionals who have been providing guidance for us. We will provide updates for everyone as these pieces become clearer in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, we hope that you will join us for our virtual meetings and community events, including our Sunday live stream service. Thank you for your patience and prayers - we look forward to the day that we can gather together in person, even if it might be a little later than any of us would like!

Lord Jesus, we mourn the nearly 100,000 Americans who have lost their lives to COVID-19 in the past few months. The full weight of this terrible tragedy has been lost on us because of our separation from one another. Holy Spirit, help us to remember that each of those people was created by You and in Your image, and so Your heart breaks 100,000 times. We also pray for those who have been affected by this pandemic in so many other ways: those who have lost their livelihood, whose lives and rhythms have been upended, who live in uncertainty and fear. Sustain us, unite us, and give us peace in the knowledge that even now, you are ever-present, and ever-working. ... See MoreSee Less
