 Each Wednesday during the season of Lent we gather for a simple potluck soup meal.  The Youth Group serves and cleans up, and all the evening 's donations go to support the New CONNECT Youth ministry Program.  Join us the food and the company are both good for us.  

The Theme for this year's Lenten Wednesday worship is The Lord is my Shepherd.  We will reflect on the rich meaning and affection  Psalm 23 has evoked  over the centuries.  This year for our Lenten evening prayer  we will be using Marty Haugen and Susan Briehl's That You May Have Life for our liturgy.
Join us as we remeber and celebrate Christ's victory over sin and the grave.  Our Holy Week worship recalls the significant events of Jesus' final week.

Paths  to Service

Have a Green Thumb?

Wanted: Sunday School Substitute Teachers

Live plants inside a Church building bring the peace and beauty of God's creation into our midst.  The live indoor plants at SLC are in need of some consistent TLC.  Pastor Schier-Hanson has been doing his best to keep them watered, but they need more attention and nurture than he's able or qualified to give them. Contact Nick in the office(253-531-7000) if you would like to be our resident indoor green thumb.
Everyone deserves a break every once in a while, especially our devoted children's Sunday School teachers.  The curriculum we're presently using is easy to understand and teach.   If you'd be willing to fill in for a week or just help out when an extra pair of hands are needed let us know in the office (253-531-7000), and we'll put you in touch with the right person. 

Food for Families Pick Up Drivers

Wanted: Office Volunteers

Our Food outreach minstry could really use a few more folks willing to pick up on Sdaturdays at 12:00 noon.  If you have a van or pickup truck you have enough space to load our weekly food supply.  If you commit to once a quarter, it would lighten the load of our regular picker-uppers a bunch.  Sign up on the Outreach Bulletin Board,  or contact the office(253-531-7000) and we'll put you in touch with Edna Coonc, our Food for Families director.
You too can be the cheerful voice of Spanaway Lutheran Church.  If you're looking for an entertaining volunteer opportunity, sign up for Tuesday afternoon or Friday morning  in the Church Office answering phones and doing sundry office work.  Few things are more entertaining than working with Nick our Administrative Assistant.  He'll keep you busy and smiling.  Cal him at  call the office (253-531-7000) and he'll put you to work.

Spanaway Food Bank Volunteers Needed

 Pick a Patch: Garden for Jesus

Once every four weeks Spanaway Lutheran takes our turn providing the labor for the Spanaway Food Bank.  We serve Monday, Wednesday and Friday  for about 2 hours in the afternoon.  Gayle Halmo, our congregational corrdinator can always us a few extras volunteers to fill vacant slots.  Serve as often or as seldom as you schedule allows. To lend a hand call the office (253-531-7000) and we'll put you in touch with Gayle.
If you like outdoor gardening and want to help beautify the Spanaway Lutheran Campus by picking a patch and calling it your own.  Presently, we need gardeners to tend the enclosed outdoor atrium, the patches at both entrances, or the courtyard/ memorial garden.   There's an old saying, "A person enters a garden at the speed of a human, and leaves at the speed of a plant.  Take a peaceful moment and do a little church gardening?  Contact Nick in the office(253-531-7000) if you would like to be our resident outdoor green thumbs.

TableTalk Chefs Wanted

If you like to cook, we can use your skills providing your culinary expertise  once or twice a year for our New table talk Ministry.  On the first three Thursdays of October & November, or January  & February a meal will be provided for 15-20 attendees of the Table Talk study group.  You make the menu, we buy the food.  Everyone enjoys a good dinner and fine fellowship. Sign up on the Christian Education bulletin board, or contact the office (253-531-7000) and Nick will put you in touch with Pastor about available dates.  

 Calling All Teachers

Is there a class or Bible study, a forum or book study you'd love to share with your Spanaway Lutheran brothers and sisters during the Adult Sunday School hour?   The adult class loves a change of pace, even a single class or short series.Call Nick in the office(253-531-7000) and he'll have Pastor Schier-Hanson put you on the teaching schedule.  

Children's Choir Chaperones

On Tuesday, October 4th at 5 pm Cheryl will kick off our new Children's Choir.   An extra pair of hands would be much appreciated; many hands make for a lighter load.   Give us a call in the office (531-7000) if your interested, and we'll make sure Cheryl gives you a call.  It'll be great fun.
