To us, outreach involves strengthening our relationships with our community and standing for social and environmental justice.
Here are some of the things we're doing. You're invited to join us!
Suquamish Community Kitchen
Nearly every Wednesday, we offer a free dinner to anyone. (Donations are welcome but never required.) We usually serve nearly 100 guests at each meal. All are welcome.
Come and enjoy a great meal as you see old friends or make new ones. As we like to say, "We serve community with every meal."
Peace Garden & Labyrinth
The labyrinth is complete! The painting was finished, and then the concrete was sealed.
The peace poles have been erected, and soon we'll place a big boulder or two on the lawn.
We're creating a plaque with the names of donors and memorials. Thanks very much to all who have contributed their time or financial support to this wonderful project!
We hope that the garden will provide a place of solace and spiritual contemplation for people in the community. We look forward to the day when we can invite all of our neighbors to a dedication service and celebration of our community's new Peace Garden & Labyrinth!
"Little Free Library" for CommutersWith support of our neighbor to the north, the Rohlingers' business, we have placed a "little free library" on the Rohlingers' property, by the bus shelter on the north side of Geneva Ave., across from our Park & Ride lot.
We've stocked it with some interesting and provocative books. Commuters (and others!) are welcome to take a book with them and, if they'd like, leave a book when they're done with it.
Suquamish Food Bank
We have long supported Fishline and their efforts to provide needed food to people of North Kitsap.
There is now a food bank in Suquamish, which is great news for people who are unable to drive to Poulsbo. We are making plans to share our abundance with this Suquamish Food Bank in addition to Fishline.
Eight members of our congregation traveled to Washington, DC, to participate in the national Women's March.
Many others from our congregation will joined people — of all gender identities, ethnicities, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientations — in solidarity by participating in the Womxn’s March in Seattle.
Support for Water Protectors
at the Dakota Access Pipeline
Thanks to everyone who contributed to our special offering on November 6. We collected $450! And, due to a special that happened to be taking place, we were able to purchase $600 worth of gas cards!
Our Lakota friends Rev. Byron and Toni Buffalo wants our congregation to know how grateful they are for this gift.
