THIS SUNDAY AT ST. CLARE’S
Here are the readings for this coming Sunday. This summer we have two choices for the lectionary and we will be following Tract 1. This tract allows us to hear consecutive stories from scripture over the weeks rather than hearing things that may perhaps be a bit more disjointed. http://www.lectionarypage.net/YearC_RCL/Pentecost/CProp10_RCL.html
We hope everyone is having a nice summer! We would like to invite the youth to a summer bowling date on Sunday July 10 at 2 pm at Tech City Bowl in Kirkland. Anyone who needs to carpool can meet at St Clare at 1 pm. Please send your youth with $10 for bowling and snacks. For this or any future social events please let me, Shelia, or Patty know if cost is an issue because there is “scholarship” money available and we want everyone to be able to take part.
Please RSVP to me no later than Friday. Let me know if you youth will attend and if they will need to carpool. If you drop your youth off in Kirkland we may not be able to give them a ride back, depending on space, so please be prepared to pick them up.
Thanks! Upcoming for August 7 is a hike to Rattlesnake Ridge.
Julia and Shelia, Youth Group Leaders

Bring your loose coins and school supplies to St. Clare’s! If you would like to help purchase school supplies for kids in the Snoqualmie Valley School district this fall, please shop for the usual items and bring them to St. Clare’s. We will also collect money in the paint bucket throughout the summer. All proceeds will go to the program. If you’d like to help with collecting, sorting, packing, and delivery, please contact: Janey Benson at email@example.com
The work-party on June 12th was a great success, but there are a few more projects around the church that could be done over the summer by one or two people who have a couple hours to give to the Church. Mostly these are outdoor projects since the weather was not so good on the 12th, but others are inside. Please talk to Patty if you’re interested.
LOOKING AHEAD TO THIS FALL
Stewardship Workshop On October 1st, Mark Henry Miller, UMC pastor will offer a workshop on Stewardship. This will be a wonderful opportunity for St. Clare’s to ponder new ways of looking at this important topic that most of us think about with dread. Stewardship is not just about money, it is about all we do after we say “I believe.” Please plan to join me for this one-day workshop. More details to follow.
Bishop’s Visitation On October 16th, Bishop Greg Rickel will make his visitation to St. Clare’s. Bishop Greg will preach and preside at our worship and will also offer Confirmation, Reception, and baptism for those who are interested. We will have classes in the fall to prepare, so if you have any interest, please let Patty know.
