Over the past several years we have observed that the alternating week Sunday morning 8:00 AM service at the Florence Henry Chapel in the Highlands has steadily been diminishing in attendance. On a recent Sunday morning only one Parishioner came.
This year we have set a goal of increasing our pledge support to St. Dunstan’s Church by at least 2%. We hope to do this through both new pledges from new members and through increased pledges from existing members. Our vestry and stewardship committee came up with this goal based on our desire to continue to invest in the growth and vitality of our congregation, the quality of our staff, and our participation in the Diocese of Olympia.
We have entered the time for creating our 2016 budget, and that triggers our Stewardship Campaign. You will be receiving a letter from me in the next few days asking you to consider your pledge to St. Dunstan’s for 2016.
As our fall kickoff approaches this Sunday, we want to make sure you can all attend church and have fun at the picnic afterwards. The Ain't No Heaven Seven will provide music for both the service and picnic. Please bring side dishes and desserts to share.
As we begin summer in earnest (oh my), we are looking for volunteers to help with our Sunday coffee hours. We will purchase the food. We just need volunteers for set up (be at the church by 9:15) and clean up (to be done by noon).
>We have had some neighborhood complaints about Tent City 3 and have developed a Liaison Team of myself (Teresa Hugel) and Michael Harrington. We are both formally trained in conflict management and it seemed to be a good idea to have a man and a woman on the team. We are meeting with the leaders of Tent City 3 and SHARE/WHEEL to discuss the challenges that have come up, and will also be meeting with the Shoreline Police Department. It is very important that our handling of neighborhood complaints have a process.
