Superfluity imaginers and dreamers…
November 10, 3:00 – 5:00 pm, Zoom
In parallel with our fall worship series, “We are,” we will honor the legacy of Superfluity and listen for how God’s plan for Superfluity continues to unfold. The path forward is a collective journey and each of us must consider how best to use our talents in 2022.
We will discuss options and follow-up with an e-mail poll to gather input from everyone on the mailing list. If you have an interest in shaping Superfluity for the future, please join us!
We have a need for new leaders in several departments. If you are recently retired or anticipate retiring in the next 4-6 months and are possibly interested, consider spending some of your time and talent with Superfluity. In the past, volunteers have worked 2-4 hours a week during Feb and March and anywhere from 4 to 40 hours the week leading up to the three day sale in April. Please contact Mary Sue Galvin at email@example.com with questions or to volunteer!

SEM Earth Bistro
Sunday, November 21, 4:00 pm
Sacred Earth Matters is always interested in helping educate the congregation about ways to live more sustainably and responsibly. We have a new option your consideration that honors our bodies but also honors mother earth after our deaths. This green alternative to cremation or burial converts your body into soil, through a process of natural organic reduction. WA state has legalized this service with the passage of a bill in the State Legislature and the signature of Gov. Inslee in May 2020.
We have the opportunity to learn about this option and ask questions at an Earth Bistro on Sunday November 21, at 4:00 pm on Zoom. Our speaker will be Morgan Yarborough who is the Services Manager for Recompose, a local organization offering this service. She will speak about the process and answer your questions. Put the date on your calendars and watch and learn about this process that tries to be faithful to individuals and families – and to our precious earth. Registration for the Zoom will appear at a later date.
