Welcome to the church bulletin page! Here’s the October 14 bulletin:

October 14, 2017 

The Church at Study —  9:30 – 10:45 a.m.

Welcome and Song Service
Lesson Study — “The Controversy”

SPECIAL WELCOME to Exaltation!  These men hail from the Auburn area and have shared the gospel through music since 2013.  Since they understand people like to know the members in a music group, they asked that the following be in the bulletin:  The Exaltation singers, from your L to R, are: Kevin Krall, Jim Harris, Sherman McCormick, Chris Williams, Jay Kissinger, Bruce Blaser, Robby Raney, and Doug Woods.  Donna Woods is the pianist.  Also, though she doesn’t need an introduction, Denise Childs will be doing the narration this morning.
FLOWERS TODAY are in celebration of Jennica Bervis’ 12th birthday.|
EVERGREEN COURT sing-along is today at 2:00 p.m., right after potluck.  You’re invited to this hour-long gospel music sing-along, and you’re welcome to bring musical instruments as well. Evergreen Court Retirement Center is about a mile northwest of the church, at the corner of 124th Avenue and NE 8th.
PALE HORSE RIDES! OCT. 27 &28! Check out the letter from the pastor, plus the invitation card, for Shawn Boonstra’s “A Pale Horse Rides” program happening the last weekend in October!
NEXT POTLUCK will be Sabbath, October 28.  Note that it’s on the fourth Sabbath this month, a change from the usual schedule of first and third Sabbaths.  This is so we can show hospitality to guests who come to hear “A Pale Horse Rides”.
PLENTY OF HIGH SCHOOL PARKING! Sammamish High School’s new parking lot is ready for use–and students have been using it all week! This means that even with the Japanese school cars, there will still be plenty of room. So please park in that lot and leave space for our guests! — Pastor Maylan
PATHFINDER INDUCTION is this Wednesday at 6:30 in the sanctuary.  Show support of our youth and their leaders by coming to the ceremony.  Just come early for prayer meeting, which is at 7:30, and enjoy an extra uplift for the week.
PATHFINDER CHOCOLATE NIGHT – Come out and support the Sojourners Pathfinder Club on Saturday night, October 21st, at 6:30 pm.  All proceeds will go toward the club’s trip to the International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, WI, in 2019!  If you would like to donate a dessert for our silent auction, please contact Jing Pecht at, Rich Wong at or Elsa Rojas at
