As a church, we are always looking for ways to grow in our understanding of how our Christian faith is the foundation that leads us toward pursuing justice in the world around us. To that end, an interest meeting is coming up specifically for white men to learn and talk together about white identity and following Christ in antiracist practices guided by scripture. Sign up for the interest meeting and wrestle with questions like: what is our responsibility to our multi-ethnic church and to the global body of Christ? What does the Bible say about race, racial reconciliation and justice? Join other white men to explore biblical answers to these questions and encourage each other to love God and love our neighbor in our unique and changing times.

Yesterday Pastor Peter shared about several transitions on our church staff. This is a hard season, but we recognize that the strength of our community is not measured by whether we experience difficulty and conflict, but how we persevere through it. Please pray for unity in our community, for wisdom in how to navigate this season, and for grace for one another as we do.

Advent starts next week on Nov 28th!
It's a time when we journey together towards Christmas in this season of longing and drawing near to Christ as we wait for His coming.

We are also aware that with covid complicating our ability to fit everyone into our in person services,
journeying and celebrating together is difficult to do. That is why we have created Advent Take Home Kits
in the hopes that we can feel unified and together despite being physically apart.

In this packet will include a devotional by A Sanctified Art, which has daily meditations, original artwork, and other interactive pieces created by women of color,
an advent tea candle set to use each Sunday through Advent, a candle to use during our Christmas Eve service, an advent arts and craft project, and more!
Please sign up here: bit.ly/3Hy5ax8, or call the church office at 206-722-5616. The kits will be available for pick up from the church office starting at 10am on Nov 24th and onward, or let us know if you're not able to stop by and would like a kit mailed to you. Let's take this chance to celebrate Advent together!

A new short-term Small Group (Launch Group) begins this week! "How We Show Up -- Fostering Community" will explore the concept of community from a Biblical perspective, look at how we choose to show up in shared spaces, and also draw on materials from the work of Brené Brown, Mia Birdsong, Margaret Wheatley and others. Members will spend time sharing, listening, and in other creative activities to build connection and explore life in the church. It will meet in-person five times in Nov. and Dec. 2021 (vaccination requested), and we hope some or all of the group may choose to continue meeting after the initial five weeks. Contact the group's leader Melinda Anderson to sign up (or email us at info@rainieravenuechurch.org to connect with Melinda) or learn more or sign up for other Small Groups here: bit.ly/3neYFYb ...
