New Member Classes

New Member Classes

Beginning Oct. 1 Ken, Aaron, and Beaver will lead another three-week new member class exploring what it means to belong to our church.

Oct. 1:                       “Belonging to Whom?”

Oct. 8:                       “Belonging to What?”

Oct. 15:                     “Why Belong?”

Coming to the class does not commit you to church membership, but at the end of the class, those who would like to become members will have the opportunity to do so.  But whatever your choice about membership, the class will be a wonderful opportunity for you to learn more about our church, and for us to learn more about you.

Please call the church office (206-878-8133) to let us know if you can come.

SCORE library and jail tour

SCORE Jail Library Work Parties at SPC

Many of our neighbors in the SCORE Jail in Des Moines like to read. Lacking electronic devices, they depend on print materials. At these work parties in the classroom under the SPC Library, we’ll prepare bookmarks and donated books and magazines for them to use. The inmates and SCORE staff appreciate this service; it lowers their stress and improves their morale. It also keeps open our opportunity (a) to show them somebody cares about them and (b) to provide materials that can help give them hope and draw them closer to Jesus. I welcome your participation!  Roger Winiecki 206-427-9117

Sign Up in the Coffee Room:

1.       ·  Sunday, 9/10/2017, ~12:30p-2:00p (after the BBQ)

2.       ·  Sunday, 9/24/2017, tour of SCORE Jail -- see below

3.       ·  Sunday, 10/8/2017, 11:30a-2:00p (starting with pizza & salad)

4.       ·  Sunday, 10/22/2017, 11:30a-2:00p (starting with pizza & salad)

 

SCORE Jail Tour

Whether or not you have participated in SCORE Library work parties at SPC or donated books/magazines, you are welcome to tour the SCORE Jail Sunday 9/24/17 after church. We'll have some pizza in our Fellowship hall (SPC downstairs) 11:15a-11:45a, meet in the SCORE Jail lobby (see maps) at 12:00 noon, and (if we behave ourselves :-)) leave by about 1:30p. There will be no contact with inmates, so minors accompanied by parents are welcome. Tour the control, booking, living, medical, court, visitation, programs, and other areas -- and see where those donated books and magazines go! Sign up in the coffee room before Monday 9/11 to allow time for SCORE to clear all the adults. (This tour replaces our SCORE Jail Library Work Party that day at SPC.)  Roger Winiecki 206-427-9117

Summer Book Club

SUMMER BOOK CLUB STARTS JUNE 27TH

Our Summer Book Club selection is “The Book of Joy”. In 2015, Bishop Desmond Tutu went to India to celebrate the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama. Together they spent a week writing what they term “a birthday present for the world”. Here are two men who have experienced tremendous loss and yet are two of the most joyful people on the planet. What is their secret? Shared with much intimacy and humor they talk about what constitutes true joy as well as the obstacles we encounter that keep us from experiencing it. We will meet 7-8 Tuesdays, 7:00 at Beaver’s house. Call if you have questions 206-246-5709. The book is available on Amazon.

Carnival at North Hill

With the support of our Witness in Action commission, Southminster is exploring service opportunities with our neighborhood school across the street.  This is a chance for our church to serve our immediate community and build relationships with our closest neighbors.  One of our first opportunities is to help with their school carnival on Friday, June 2, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.  The leadership of the school PTSA has invited us to participate by signing up on their volunteer website http://signup.com/go/KgoEC3.  You may click on his link to see the many types of jobs we could do during one of their hour-long shifts.  This is a simple way for us as a church to get to know some of our neighbors and demonstrate our care for our community as followers of Christ.  If you have questions, contact Jane Davis or Ken Onstot.
