We look forward to being together to deliberate the council's recommended Operating Budget for 2021.

People have been generous. We give thanks for the financial support so many have shared in 2020. Even in one of the strangest and most demanding years we have ever faced together, you financial support sustained our ministry, made a big difference for our neighbors in need and made possible a long overdue lighting project!
The Council's recommended operating budget for this year includes:
  • Maintaining our commitment to support the Northwest WA Synod
  • Compensation for our part time Associate Pastor for a full year
  • Keeping our staff
  • Adjustments for utilities and facility use
  • Provisions for keeping our online worship and meetings
  • Preschool and Family & Friends Gathering

You can participate on Zoom or by phone. We want to make sure EveryOne is included. If you need help with technology or other arrangements, let us know!
