Seattle Summertime

The sunshine is back in Seattle, and Sinners & Saints folks have been enjoying hanging out this summer. Last Tuesday, we enjoyed Frisbee and picnic time at Gasworks Park. On Sunday, while Alan and I attend a family wedding, the Sinners & Saints crew will be enjoying a meal together at Kate, Nate, and Jonathan’s place in Ballard. Join in for some quality hang-out time, a potluck, and with Jonathan’s vast board game collection handy, some friendly competition is very likely. For directions to the party, email Jonathan at jonmerker@gmail.com

Coming up on Thursday, July 29th, we will be partnering with the University District Food Bank to hand out special donations from Trader Joe’s. Stop by the food bank from 5-8 to lend a hand, and join us afterward for bubble tea on the Ave. We are also inviting our friends and community to join in by donating to the cause so we can purchase some much-needed items including feminine hygiene products and baby formula. Interested in donating? Email Katie Klug ASAP, and she’ll pick up the products at Costco next Thursday. Contact Katie at katiebugk@gmail.com

If you’ve been thinking about checking out Sinners & Saints, or just want to catch up, I’d love to chat with you.

Peace to you,




Since March, all the Sinners & Saints folks have been volunteering at the University District Food Bank on a regular basis. Thursday nights have been a great time to connect with each other, and our local community. While most weeks we have had 3-5 people working together, we’re planning an all-church Thursday with as many folks as possible volunteering on the same date, to work together and donate some special items through a partnership with Trader Joe’s. Join us from 5-8 on Thursday, July 29th. To RSVP via email: connect@sinnersandsaintschurch.com

If you are a Sinners & Saints regular, please consider making a donation to our Food Bank Partnership Night. While we are asking Trader Joe’s to donate food items, critical items such as feminine products, toothbrushes and toothpaste, soaps, shampoos, and baby wipes are always needed. To donate to this project, checks can be made out to ‘Sinners and Saints Church’, with ‘Food Bank Partnership’ in the subject line. Email us at connect@sinnersandsaintschurch.com for our snail mail address, or info on how to set up an electronic transfer. Regular support and donations can also be sent to this address, and tax-deductible receipts are available from our finance team. Thank you for partnering with us!

Join us on Thursday nights as we hang out with our neighbors, sort food, laugh, bag groceries, and have a good time. Up to 5 volunteers per week, send an email to connect@sinnersandsaintschurch.com to sign up or for more info!

    We’re setting the date for our first-ever churchwide retreat for August 13-15. Let me know if you can make those dates, and if you’d like to be part of the planning committee!


    This summer, Ramen Night is transitioning from once-a-week Tuesday night event to once-a-month. The first Tuesday of the month still means a bowl of steaming ramen at Lounjin, but other Tuesdays will be devoted to fun activities planned by church folks. If you’d like to join in planning fun events, casual outings like picnics at Gasworks, kayaking on Lake Union, or dinner at Paseo’s near Golden Gardens, let me know! email: connect@sinnersandsaintschurch.com
