IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS
On June 14th, we will have an all church Ministry Sunday and end of year BBQ. Come in your work duds & bring your gloves & tools and we’ll spiffy up St. Clare’s inside and out (weather cooperating). We have a list with things to do from easy to a bit more challenging…Something for everyone. And then we’ll celebrate the end of the school year with a BBQ. Our fellow worshipers from Living Waters will join us for the cleanup and will provide some wonderful Indian food.
This Sunday is the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. We will be in this “green season” until Advent begins in late November. Our readings will cover historical stories from the Old Testament, major portions of many of the Letters of Paul & the other early writers, plus most of the Gospel according to Mark. The readings for Sunday are here so you can read up and think about them before church.
The Bishop’s Committee will meet on Tuesday, June 9th. All meetings are open to the congregation if you’d like to sit in or share an idea or thought.
FUNDRAISING & OUTREACH
June is Soup Kitchen month. Our morning of service will be on June 10th. Please contact Rick Woodruff if you can help out with either a soup or an hour or so to serve & have conversation with the clients. Rick can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-854-1545.
In June we will put out our coin bucket for the month to raise money to support a local outreach group. Please bring your loose change and dump it in the bucket each Sunday. Our goal is $50 each quarter and we blew the lid off the first quarter’s goal by giving $230 to the Snoqualmie Valley Transportation Association to buy 23, 10-pass booklets for local riders. These are the white buses that you see driving around the Valley.
We raised over $600 at our Pasta Night dinner. Many thanks again to all who helped out. If you’d like to make a contribution to support our campers you may still do so by putting Camp Huston on the memo line of your gift.
It looks like the totals for this year’s Crop Walk are nearing $8,000. That’s great news as the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank will receive about $2,000 to help serve those in need. Attached are a few photos of the day. Many thanks to all who attended the ecumenical worship service, walked, & contributed.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Groups are forming to organize both the Bridge Group (4th – 7th grades) and Godly Play (1st – 3rd grades) for this fall. We will need totory-teller. If you would like to participate in either of these groups, please let me know.
We STILL need two people to help the treasurer do our annual audit before mid-June. You don’t need to have any accounting or financial background. Please talk with Mary Fairbrook if you can help out for a couple hours.
