ANNOUNCEMENTS

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Jan 21st


A Letter to our Congregation on Racism and our
Commitment to do Better. 


Pastor Alan recently included a letter to our congregation on racism and our commitment as a church community to do better where racism is concerned. If you have not had an opportunity to read that letter, please click HERE to view an electronic copy. 


Next week our country celebrates Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  This is not just a day off.  This is a time to serve our community and reflect on a legacy of working toward a just and loving country. We hope you will consider participating in the following community events:


 - Moving Toward Action: Advocacy 101.  In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of action, the United Way of Snohomish County is hosting two advocacy trainings in January and February to not only inspire people to have a voice, but give them the tools to advocate for lasting change.

Trainings are free and open to the public and will give an overview of the legislative process, tips for meeting with legislators, and provide an opportunity for community members to learn and practice skills to be more effective at advocating to the Washington State legislature.

Moving Toward Action: Advocacy 101
Thursday, Jan. 24

9 - 11 a.m.
Offices of United Way of Snohomish County
3120 McDougall Ave., Everett

Moving Toward Action: Advocacy 101
Thursday, Feb. 21

4 - 6 p.m.
Offices of United Way of Snohomish County

 - There is also a larger community worship service on Sunday January 20th hosted by Bethany Christian Assembly at 3pm.  The bulletin has a blurb with the wrong date, but the location and time is correct. Pastor Alan will be attending this service and encourages you to as well. 


 - Pastor Alan is working with members of our church and resources from our presbytery to form a study group.  This group will commit to read, share, and act in ways to alleviate racism and be advocates in our community.  This is a life-long process, but as believers who honor a discipleship life, we know God is always refining and redeeming us.  More information on this study group will be coming.  


There are many ways to serve. For additional opportunities, please click HERE.
