Calling ALL families with children from birth to college!! Please join us for a potluck dinner on Sunday, 23 June at 6 pm to discuss the coming program year.  We need and want your ideas and input!  Specifically, but not limited to, we want to discuss fellowship for families, high school youth group, a middle school, and younger group, Sunday School, etc. 
Bring your ideas and your calendars and let’s tackle these exciting age groups we are lucky to have amongst us! No childcare will be provided but there will be activities on the side that kids can choose to participate in, if they wish. Please rsvp to Beth Bowen at bbowen@stmaryslw.org or 253-223-8611. See you there!

The LED Electronic Message sign will be installed by Berry Sign Co. in mid to late July. The Vestry approved the proposal at the May meeting. It is being paid for with proceeds from the Martha Graef (unrestricted) Fund and a generous donation from Ginny Rawlings. We are excited about the advertising and outreach potential (double-faced and changeable) to showcase the church activities to the community.

Nourish Food Bank meal volunteers will meet on Sunday at 9:00 AM in the conference room. We’ll be planning the meal for Friday, June 21, 2019. If you have an interest in feeding others, please join us.

A Huge Thank You to Bettye Craft for acting as the Parish Photographer and capturing so many smiles for the directory. The new directory will be out in hard copy and on the website in late June.
