Youth Fishing Day! May 29 at 2 pm

All school-age youth are invited to our Youth Fishing Day on May 29! Seasoned fishermen who love kids plan to take boats where the fish are biting for a fun day.  The event will be capped with a campfire and dinner!

Thank you for registering so we can plan for boats, gear, and food. Drop off is 2 pm or later (some kids are still in school) at Charlie Olson's house. Walk the path back to the lake where fishing and fun are waiting for you! Pickup time is 7 pm.

Looking for volunteers (especially if you have a boat) to help with this event! If you can, touch base with Charlie or Larry.

Experience the Bible daily!

Many of us at Lake Union are already plugged into the YouVersion Bible app (free).

We like this app with  its Verse of the Day, hundreds of reading plans, numerous Bible versions (including audio), connecting with friends and more.

It is available for most devices.  

It's a great way to grow spiritually!


Congratulations to our 2019 Confirmands!

On May 5, we recognized 11 confirmands!  We extend our congratulations to each, their parents and family.

Open Invitation - Life Group, "Sunday after Sunday"

You are invited to the "Sunday after Sunday" Life Group which meets each Sunday after the service. We call it "Sunday after Sunday" for two reasons. First, it will take place Sunday morning, after the Sunday service! Second, it will happen every week, Sunday after Sunday after Sunday... This will be a Life Group opportunity for people to discuss whatever they would like to discuss from our morning worship time. Maybe a particular song spoke to you or there is a part of the sermon you would like to talk about. The format will be open discussion and sharing, not a lecture or classroom approach. It will be led by some of our lay leaders so feel free to talk about Pastor Mark's message without him listening in!

We hope to have more Life Groups launching this fall. They will meet in people's homes and will involve subjects and ideas that each group is interested in. If you would like more information or would like to be involved in a Life Group, click here to send a message to Pastor Mark.

Open Invitation - Sisters in Spirit

The women's Bible study group, Sisters in Spirit, extend an open invitation to all women on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 9:30-11 am. In addition to fellowship and refreshments, those attending share personal experiences and thoughts around scripture. Email the church or contact Grace Norgren if you have questions.
