NOW OFFERING CHILDREN'S CHURCH
We are so excited to offer Children’s Church on non-communion Sundays. Since Sunday School is difficult to have at this time, we wanted to come up with an alternative. Children’s Church is a great way to give kids from Preschool - 5th grade a chance to be together and learn about God’s Word.
We have a group of volunteers who will be leading Children’s Church with a lesson, an activity, songs and a prayer prepared for the kids. Children’s Church will take place before the sermon and last until the end of the service. Parents will pick their kids up from either a classroom or the gym in the community center.
If you have any questions about Children’s Church or would like to help in some way, please let Erin Holmquist know via email to email@example.com.
The 3M’s (More Mature Members), a group designed for seniors 55+, look forward to meeting once again in the Community Center Cedar room weekly on Thursdays at 10:00am for an hour to share in fellowship and study God's Word.
First meeting this Thursday, July 29 @ 10 am.
Occasionally, trips and traditions take us off campus. For more information, contact Jim Nordness or leave a note in his church mailbox. You may also call the church office at 360-491-3552.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED WEEKLY
Ushers: Ushers greet worshipers and help guide people to their seats before services, help gather offering and guide those taking communion. Again, not a real time consuming task with enough volunteers, but an important job. Please contact Becky in the church office if you are interested, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clean Up: One of the requirements for worshiping during COVID is that we wipe down and do a general cleaning of the sanctuary and church after service. It usually only takes 10 minutes or so after service, but it has to be done after each service. Please contact Becky in the church office if you are able to help, email@example.com.
Meeting needs through sponsorship to Faith’s members who are sick, grieving or homebound. Please connect with the church office, firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-491-3552 to get involved in an effort to keep these friends connected and feeling they are still a part of Faith’s community.
MEDICAL EQUIPMENT REPAIR
Free medical equipment (non-electric) repair is being offered Monday – Friday by appointment only. If you need help with your walker, wheelchair, cane, crutches, etc. call the church office at 360-491-3552 to be connected with the repair technician.
