You won’t want to miss our outdoor worship this year! This has become a summer tradition as we praise God together in the beauty of God’s creation. There will be a picnic potluck that day also. This is a great time to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to join us for worship.
We are blessed with some excellent preachers to fill-in when Pastor Amy is out for vacation and study leave. Rev. Dean Strong is the guest preacher for July 14th and Rev. Janine Moriarty will be with us on August 4th. Please give them both a warm Edmonds welcome!
Congratulations to the following students on their achievements:
Join us on Sunday, June 16th as we say a special thank you to the choir for another fantastic year of music. Many thanks to Kathy and Gina for continuing to share their gifts with us. We are blessed by all that you and the choir do to lead us in worship of God. For this Sunday they will be joined by extra musicians, including Gospel Soloist, Nichol Eskridge. It will be a day of joyous praise to God.

Toall who helped with our Easter Sunday Services – the music, choir, hospitality, egg hunt, child care and Sunday school -- YOU made Easter happen for our community and our guests. (Did you see that we had 10 kids in attendance?) Thank-you for all you did on Easter Sunday and every Sunday.
Maundy Thursday, April 18th, 6PM –7PM Communion and Soup Supper

On this sorrowful day of remembrance, we will gather in the sanctuary to remember the events of that day in Jerusalem when Jesus was crucified.
Easter Sunday - April 21st, 10AM
Alleluia! Christ is Risen! Come join us as we joyfully celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The choir will enrich our worship with Easter solos and anthems. Gospel soloist, Nichol Eskridge, will be with us. An Egg Hunt will be held after worship.
Lent is the season of the church year when we prepare our hearts and minds for Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is the 40 days preceding Easter, excluding Sundays. Lent began with Ash Wednesday, the day when we recall our need for God, remembering our own mortality – “dust you are and to dust you shall return.” Lenten devotional booklets are available on the back table with readings and prayers to assist you in a prayerful Lenten journey.
Rev. Dr. Jean Kim has written a book about her life titled, “Hope in the Color Purple.” You may recognize her name from her work founding the Church of Mary Magdalene for Homeless Women (now Mary’s Place) and her more recent work with her foundation helping the homeless to obtain a college degree or accreditation. We hope to have Rev. Dr. Jean Kim visit us in April during worship and share a moment for mission with us.
