Sinners and Saints Newsletter: Jan 31 – Feb 6

After a week in Denver and a renovation party at U-Studios, I hope you’re as excited as I am to continue our journey through the book of Luke. We will be meeting Tuesday at Lounjin at 7:00 pm. Join us for cake and conversation, even if you haven’t made it out before. Also, we’ll be deciding together how we as a church can start partnering with our neighborhood, so bring any ideas for organizations you’ve worked with or researched. As a new churchplant, we have the unique opportunity to literally ‘be the church’ together. What you say, believe and do shapes who we are. For those of you who are joining in Sinners and Saints, I pray that these next few months and years are a blessing and a stretching to your own lives and faith. In the next few months, as we start Sunday worship services, Becky Cramer Jarboe of U-Studios, a new exercise studio space next to the University Bookstore, has generously offered her space to us for Sunday use. Thanks so much, Becky! We’ll be updating everyone when we make the transition to Sunday services.

Coffee Chats
Needing a little pastoral care, or just hoping to catch up? I’ll be hanging out at Trabant Coffee and Chai in the University District on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Shoot me an email, I’d love to meet with you. If Trabant doesn’t work with your schedule or location don’t worry, we can come up with a time and place that works for us both.

Midwinter Update
While spending time with our denomination in Denver, I also had a chance to chat with our churchplanting coach, Kurt Carlson. A northwest churchplanter himself, Kurt will be journeying with us over the next few years, and in upcoming months will be joining one of our gatherings. Both Kurt and national churchplanting director Peter Sung expressed excitement over what God is doing through our new faith community. We will sign our official paperwork with the denomination in mid-February!

Sunday Family Dinners
Our Sunday Family Dinners will kick off February 14th. Join us at our home in Wallingford for Sunday Dinner. We’re starting dinner at 5pm to welcome families with children, and enjoying a time of relaxed fellowship together. These evenings won’t include a Bible Study, but will include plenty of good food, great friends, and the chance to build community. Need the address? Just e-mail Leah at leah@sinnersandsaintschurch.com
