Cluster Meeting for ELCA Churches in South Central WA Sunday, May 5th 3pm at Christ Lutheran in Yakima. Everyone is welcome. We’ll get better acquainted, do a little Pre-Assembly stuff and hear from Pastor Phil Misner, assistant to the Bishop in Eastern/WA-ID. Coffee and treats provided. You can catch a ride with Pastor Dennis if you like. (P.S. Pastor D is “Dean” of our cluster.)

Kairos Outside (which helps women, who have a loved one that is or was incarcerated) will be using our facilities on April 13th for a training and April 26-28 for a weekend retreat. Kairos Outside is a weekend retreat intended to help strengthen the family unit and encourage small support groups. Kairos of Eastern WA holds one weekend a year to provide a secure place for women to share their struggles. Not everyone feels called to this type of ministry or can make the time commitment that is needed to form a team. The women that attend (the guests) do not pay anything. Team members are working throughout the year to raise funds to cover the expense of a three day weekend for up to 80 people. If you would like to help volunteer your time or for more information, please contact Michele Brown at 407-443-0682 or Micheled_brown@yahoo.com
