Sunday AM Education

Education Hour | Autism Friendly Church Services

Education Hour | Autism Friendly Church Services, 9:10 am

The adult education topic for November is Autism Friendly Church Services. Led by our members with experience as special education teachers and parents of children with special needs, we will be looking at our building to discern the best place to provide an experience that allows autistic children to explore faith and interact with God in a space that is both safe and welcoming. Throughout November there will be oppertunities to learn more about what it is like for children to live in a world that overwhelms them and how we can reach out to these amazing children and their families.

Our adult education class meets between Sunday services (~ 9:05–9:50 am) in Wilson Hall. Please join us for coffee and a variety of discussions, lectures and topics!

Benefit Concert

Music, Thanks, and Giving: A Benefit Concert of Healing and Love

Music, Thanks, and Giving

FREE, but donations will be taken to benefit: Life After Hate, DESC, Live Your Dream, and Para Los Niños. Friday 11/24 7:30pm.

The Second Annual Music, Thanks, and Giving Benefit Concert is happening Friday, November 24 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM in the Sanctuary. This benefit concert began last year because the organizers knew the world around us could be better. A year later, many of us have become numb, but the reality is that acts of hate and violence are commonplace, sexual, racial, and gender harassment is a daily occurrence, and many people fear for their lives everyday. Regardless of your political views, we must all agree that discrimination, harassment, and hate have no place in our civilized society.

Admission is FREE, but donations will be taken to benefit the following charitable organizations: Life After Hate (helping radicalized individuals disengage from extremist movements), DESC (Seattle homelessness resource), Live Your Dream (helping women and girls reach their full potential), Para Los Niños (Education Resource for Latino Students in Puget Sound).

There will be a fantasy tabletop role-playing game extravaganza in Wilson Hall, December 2, 10:00 - 5:00, including a break for lunch.

Depending on interest we will be playing some combination of D&D 1st and 5th editions and other fun games. If you've never tried a tabletop role-playing game before and would like to learn, you're in for a treat! If you're an experienced player, come smite us with your wiles!
