Quilters Group

Tuesday, February 26th, 10:00am. We're starting the New Year with new projects. Looking forward to Easter we have patterns for several beautiful wall hangings for the Sanctuary. Help us choose patterns, fabrics and sewing techniques. These can be made during our monthly sessions or at home if that is easier. Also, we need some special comfort quilts. Come and discuss the needs and how they can be filled.

Do you know the history behind the comfort quilt projects that we work on? We’d love to share our story & projects with you on the last Tuesday of each month. Join us at 10:00am on February 26th and we will show you what we are working on.

"Winter Storm Watch - update" 

Sisters and brothers of SAUMC,

I hope you've stayed warm over these snowy days! I have to say, I thought I was done shoveling snow when I moved from the mountains of PA to the PNW; it seems I couldn't have been more wrong!

It appears the snow has finished for the this week and into the weekend. As such, Ken Russell - our Trustees Chair - and our Church Administrator called no less than 40 companies to get our parking lot plowed. Finally, they struck gold! So if you feel safe traveling on Sunday, we will be here with heat, coffee & tea, and a freshly plowed parking lot! If you don't feel safe, know that we hold you in prayers as you continue to wait out "snow-pocalypse 2019"!

Also, a quick reminder: in between church services (9:45 - 10:15) we will hold an informative meeting about The UMC's Special General Conference happening Feb. 23-26.

I'll see you soon!

Blessings, Pastor Dirk

Highlights and Happenings

Special General Conference Informative Meeting - During the 2016 General Conference of The UMC, the 860 member body voted to have a Special General Conference to focus on the topic of Human Sexuality. The Conference will convene from Feb. 23-26 in St. Louis, MO. Join Pastor Dirk in between services (9:45-10:30) on February 17th, for a brief informative discussion about this Special General Conference.

Literacy Center & REACH Program Update - Literacy Center & REACH Program Update - On Thursday (Feb. 7th), Barbara Clarkson ( REACH Program Coordinator), Rich Green (Lay Leader), and Pastor Dirk met with the District Building Committee to have a follow-on conversation about the potential construction of a Literacy Center on church property. After a brief presentation and a few questions, the Committee unanimously approved our building proposal! The Committee was very explicit about their excitement for the REACH Program and its potential to impact the community. In the coming weeks, we will host a church-wide informative meeting to discuss the REACH Program and the building of a Literacy Center. Eventually, we will call a special Church Conference to a hold a vote for the building. In the meantime, if you'd like to hear more about the progress and the program's purpose, please see Barbara, Rich, and/or Pastor Dirk.

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
