Cottage Meetings--Sign Up Today!

Pastor John is inviting you to his home this summer for a Cottage Meeting. As we come back together after a year and a half of absence from one another, this is a perfect time to consider the fact that we’ve all changed, so our ministry needs to adapt to those changes and the new needs you may be feeling. This is a time of reset and Pastor John wants to hear from you!

Throughout August and September Pastor John is inviting the whole congregation to sign up for a time of conversation and connection. Each meeting will be comprised of up to 15 congregational members. You will be invited to share with Pastor John and one another how things have been over the course of the past year.
For example:

  • What are the greatest challenges/difficulties you’ve experienced this past year?
  • Where are you at spiritually these days?
  • How have you changed and how have your needs changed?
  • What are you needing in a faith community going forward?
  • What changes, adaptations, additions or tweaks to our ministry at FLRB would you like to see as we begin in-person ministry?

Additionally, the FLRB staff and Pastor have also been talking about some new ministry ideas and would value your input.

Please sign up for a Wednesday evening or a Thursday morning that works for you. A couple of Saturdays will also be offered. Each gathering will last about 90 minutes and treats will be provided!

Sign up by clicking this link or by calling the church office (206-546-4153 x0) and leaving a message.

What to Expect at In-Person Worship

 

Worship Location: The service will be held in the Sanctuary Garden (between the Sanctuary and the Preschool Wing–marked with a yellow cross on the map below). You may walk through the playground to get there–the gates will be open.

Parking: Please plan to park in the main parking lot or by the church sign.  

Seating: Please bring your own chair, we will have some available for you if you do not have a chair or are not able to bring one.

Building Access: While we will be worshiping outside the building is not closed. You are welcome to use the bathrooms or go into the Sanctuary to pray. 

Playground: The playground is open. Feel free to use before or after worship.

Children: We are a church that always welcomes children to participate in worship! We will have a children’s message however kids will stay with their families.

Masking: To make sure that all feel welcome and comfortable we will be asking you to mask. Especially when coming up for communion and fellowshipping before and after worship.            

Communion: There will be two options for communion, “traditional” where the wafer will be handed to you and you can grab a small communion cup or “prepackaged” where the grape juice and wafer are packaged together and you can grab it from a tray. 

Offering: There will be stations to bring your offering up as you come up for communion.

Volunteer Hospitality Needs: Each week we will need a team of volunteers to help with the following:

  • 2 Ushers
  • 2 parking lot directors
  • 1 reader
  • 2 communion servers
