Reverse Advent Bags are due back on Dec. 30rd!                          

  Please bring them to the church and we’ll deliver them, or deliver them to your favorite food bank soon! Thanks! 


Check out the African Team Ministries table after church today this will be the last week it is available!

We have many gifts to choose from – jewelry, scarves, figurines, purses, and more. All purchases support funding for orphan and refugee relief missions and evangelism in East Africa. Great way to shop for the holidays and support children in need in countries like Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.

The Afghan Immigrant Family Giving Tree

This is the last week to participate and help out. We are reaching out to 15 refugee families who are now living here in the Seattle Area from Afghanistan. You can help by going to the Giving Tree in our gathering space and picking a name or two to pray for and then bring diapers, children’s toys, and children’s books every Sunday to put under the tree! We also encourage you to give monetary gifts through the many giving options
