EASTER BLESSINGS – We pray our services will be a blessing for members, their guests, and visitors as together we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is risen! He is risen indeed! Special thanks to the many who contributed to today’s worship experiences.
PASTOR DAVE ON VACATION THIS WEEK – with wife Barbara, visiting their son David at Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa. They hope to dodge the forecasted rain and thundershowers to catch David playing baseball. They’re also excited to join him at the Sioux City Art Center as he and fellow classmate unveil this year’s Briar Cliff Review, an annual Art and Literature publication on which David contributed as co-editor. They return to the Seattle area next Sunday evening. Please pray for a safe and enjoyable time for the family.
PASTORAL EMERGENCIES THIS WEEK – while Pastor Dave is on vacation, please contact Council President Gale Hill in the event of a pastoral care emergency. Gale will contact a local pastor to respond as needed. Ghill5250@gmail.com. Phone 425-747-6932.

NAMETAGS ARE A WAY TO “WELCOME ALL” – Thanks to those who are wearing your nametags faithfully each Sunday – and especially today with our many guests and visitors! It’s an act of hospitality. It helps when we experience a momentary memory lapse (yes you, Pastor Dave!) It also enables Communion servers to offer you the elements personally, by name. If you need a new nametag, please contact Judy Giseburt, Office Administrator, at email@example.com or 425-746-7300 during office hours, Monday through Thursday, 9:30 am to 2 pm.
