Strings of Strength is a project to provide comfort items to survivors of sexual assault and violence who share their stories with the Break the Silence Sunday (BTSS) team. Since starting BTSS in 2015, Rev. Moira has had over 820 survivors share their stories with her. This year at General Synod, a resolution was passed to recognize Break the Silence Sunday once per year nationally throughout the denomination. Since then, Rev. Moira has started a project to create and collect items of comfort that she can pass out to survivors at the next General Synod, conference meeting, and wherever else she encounters those brave enough to speak up. Since our church was one of the first churches in the Pacific Northwest to adopt BTSS, I’m hoping we can continue to provide our support and build on our summer theme of creativity as spiritual practice!

Can you teach a few Sundays a month? We have great materials, shiny new classrooms, and engaging children. If you enjoy children from preschool to eighth grade we'd love to have you join our team. Contact Laura in the church office if you are interested.

Please sign up on the list in the Narthex to spend an occasional Sunday morning assisting in the CE building hallway. The job involves being aware of strangers in the building and being a support to the Sunday school teachers and nursery attendant. We even have a cushy chair waiting for you in the hallway by the drinking fountain! Please consider signing up for this important volunteer role.
