Women's Bible Study: Second Monday of the month @ 4pm. (only Sept-April)(not in December)
Quilting: Last Wednesday of every month @ 8:30am. (not the months of Oct.- Dec.)
Backpacks for the Weekend: For the month of July we will be collecting toothpaste and tooth brushes for the Pierce County Food Shelf. During the summer the backpack program is not running as it is while school is in session so these items will be distributed when school starts up again. Also there is a can in the grocery cart that is to be used for money donations for the Food Shelf. Through their contacts (Second Harvest, United Way, etc.) they can purchase approximately $25 worth of food with each $5 donation, so the cash donations go a long way. Rhoda generally works at the Food Pantry on Mondays and would take the donations in at that time. As always, thank you so much for your generous donations. Evangelism Committee
Basics for Local Kids:This year we collected: 12 mittens/gloves, 13 hats/headbands, 4 scarves, 3 snow pants, 15 coats, and 7 pair of boots. These items will be stored for the summer and distributed to needy families within Pierce County next fall. Thank you again for your donations. Evangelism Committee The Evangelism Committee is looking ahead to the next Gods Work Our Hands Sunday on September 8th, 2019. We are planning to have a brainstorming meeting on July 10th at 7:00 at Pauline and Roger's home. Please contact one of us if you have a project you would like to lead or be a part of. We can apply for Thrivent Action Team funds for a project if needed, but need to know this ahead of time to get the application filled out, and get the money, in time to do the project. Never stop thinking of ways to do God's work with your hands, there are so many opportunities. Heather Johnson, Pauline Laughnan, and Sharon Peterson

Men in Mission: (MIM) meet the 3rd Saturday of every other month. June 15th at 8am
Adult Forum: The Adult Forum meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month from 10:30 am to 11:00 am to encounter how our faith helps us understand the world around us. We welcome lively discussion to seek understanding on topics that interest the class. (Sunday June 2nd, 16th, and 30th @ 10:30am) Assisting Minister Workshop: Martin Luther said, among other things, that we are a “priesthood of all believers.” Before, it was only the priest and the deacons who were allowed to approach the altar. Luther saw this as one more way the Church hierarchy tried to separate the people from God. Anyone, he asserted, can approach the altar, just as anyone can approach God. Many churches have responded to this by having a congregation member serve as an assisting minister, helping to lead the service with the pastor. The presence of an assisting minister is a reminder that we are all welcome to come to God, and that we don’t have to be an ordained minister to lead in worship. I will be living out that assertion of Luther’s this fall, and I invite you to participate in the position of Assisting Minister. If you aren’t sure what that is or what that entails, there will be several information meetings (each stands on its own; it’s not a series) where I will lead a discussion on what the duties and expectations of an Assisting Minister are. If the Spirit moves you, please let me know if you feel it’s something you can do in our service together. The next Meeting is unknown at this time.
