Thanks to all who came and participated in our congregational meeting Sunday, August 20, 2017! The congregation affirmed Session's recommendations to reduce Maggie Breen's pastoral role from 14 to 8 hours per week, prioritizing her leadership in Compassion, Justice, and Peace and ending her long work with our youth. This action was taken at Maggie's request after her transition from REACH Executive Director to Community Engagement Manager for the Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs at Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry. It is effective July 1, 2017. In worship we celebrated Maggie's 10 years of youth ministry and thanked both Maggie and Derona Burkholder for their gifts and graces. Please be in prayer and conversation as we discern future priorities including our ministry with youth and children.
