Summer Pilgrim Journey
A dream of
Bill Harper's came true in 2005 when we went into the wilderness for 12
the first group of Grace high school youth. We've taken many more trips since then and are now preparing for
year's Wilderness Pilgrimage.
Each year some
of the Pilgrims are able to work to help cover the cost of the trip.
parishioners have hired Pilgrims to do yard work, painting, food prep
parties..... You name it, they've done it.
there is even a fluent french speaker and a guitarist in a local rock
kids listed below are on the island during July and ready to work!
consider calling these guys for your summer projects. They are great!

Grace Church Retreat, Fort Worden State Park
October 22-24, 2010
After a year's hiatus, we will gather once again for a weekend at Fort Worden for the all-church retreat, October 22-24. Thinking of going? Then you'll want to jump on it now because this popular event has limited capacity and fills quickly. Registration for the retreat is well underway, and this year we have begun a new tradition with on-line registration. You may also register during coffee hour after the 9:30 am service on Sundays. Look for more details in the summer issue of our Grace newsletter and on our website at gracehere.org/parish life.
For more details/questions please visit our website or contact out Parsih Life Chair, Petra Velie:
Grant Funding for 2010/2011
The Grace Outreach Committee has nearly completed this year's primary round of grant funding. Each year 10% of our pledges (yours, too!) is dedicated to serving something other than ourselves. The Outreach committee continues to focus on 3 core areas for our grant efforts: affordable housing, hunger (food programs) and health care-related programs. More detailed grant info will be available quite soon, when we finalize our first and primary 2010 round of grant-funding.
· Grace's Food Basket Sunday program needs your family's support. We collect canned/dry goods for Helpline House, so always welcome your contribution. Our program also seeks additional support: taking these goods to Helpline House on a monthly basis.
· It is Grace's turn to serve The UCC Suquamish's Community Kitchen meal this month. Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 28th to either cook, serve, clean...but most certainly eat a great dinner as well.
