Help needed! Monday 7/25/2016 Church Office/Storage

from the Church Office/Storage Reorganizing Crew, as we prepare for Rev. Helen's arrival:

Summer is a great time to clean out our closets or garages or storage areas in our homes. Saltwater Church can benefit from the same. A group of people (formerly the Scroll Mailing Team) is interested in doing some organizing of storage areas starting with the office building. While most of this involves decision making (exercising our minds), due to extenuating circumstances, strong backs, hands and hearts are needed for some of the physical tasks.  If you are able to help out any day during the last week of July, 7/25-7/29, please contact Carol Mohler,, or 206-870-2060 (leave message).

NOTE: We especially will need help with lifting moderate to heavy items on Monday, 7/25 (for example, moving leftover flooring materials out of the Team Supplies area in the office building). Please let Carol Mohler know if you are available to help us out! Repeating her contact info --

email: or call 206-870-2060 (leave a message).

No Third Sunday Potlucks for July or August, 2016

We will not have our usual Third Sunday potlucks in July and August, 2016.

Our thanks and gratitude and many rounds of applause to our 2015-2016 Sunday Potluck team -- Pat Montgomery, Marilyn Hanson, Laura Billington and Jan James -- and the many volunteers who provided our meals, set up our tables and chairs, and cleaned up afterwards. THANK YOU!!!!

Updated Directory for SUU Members as of 7/7/2016

An updated copy of the Church Directory is now available on our website. MANY CORRECTIONS ARE ANTICIPATED, as most of us have not seen an updated copy of our information since December 2015 or before.

If you see that any of your information is incorrect, please send the corrections to Communications Coordinator Melanie Cohen, via email to, or you can leave a phone message for Melanie at (253)777-4994.

You will need to  have an account on the website to view or download the (read-only) 2016 PDF file on the directory page. (You will see both the 2015 as well as 2016 files.)

You can get to the directory page via the click-on link found at the bottom of the home page or .

UPDATED NOTE, Thursday, July 21, 2016: For the 7/7/2016 published version, the Directory only shows information for people who are currently listed as Saltwater Church Members in the membership database. We will be updating our Church database and adding directory listings for active and known non-members to the next published version of the Church Directory, which will hopefully be publishable before the end of August, 2016. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through technical difficulties and time constraints!

Our "Aging With Spirit" group continues on! We will be meeting in the Sanctuary at noon on Sunday, July 24. Please bring a snack to share with others, as you are able. The first part of the meeting will be to talk about what our group's purpose will be for the 2016-2017 church year, and to brainstorm topics of interest for future months. The second part of the meeting will be to continue talking about "Spiritual Maturity", which we started at our June 26th group, based on Michael Durall's ideas in his book, "The Almost Church, Revisited." Please email Melanie Cohen at if you have any questions before we meet!
