Mother’s Encouragement Group (MEG)
At MEG, we believe that beautiful things happen when moms encourage each other in community. If you’re a mom with young children, MEG is your place to meet with other moms who are at a similar place in their motherhood journey. This year we are reading Parenting the Wholehearted Child: Captivating Your Child’s Heart with God’s Extravagant Grace by Jeannie Cunnion. Discussions will be led by Sandra Chiou, Hilary Kvale, and Lauren Miller. MEG meets every other Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Fellowship House. Coffee, pastries, and childcare provided.
Choristers is open to children ages 4-12. We meet every Wednesday evening from 7:00 - 8:00, in the choir room. Please see Melissa McMillan for more details.
Men’s Prayer & Bible Reading
We meet Thursdays at 6:30 am in the Conference Room. We are currently reading in the New Testament. Please join us as we read and pray for each other and the world.
Come join us for some fellowship and fun, Saturdays at 9:30 am. We have a great soccer location at 1717 S Union Ave. Tacoma, WA 98405! Guys and gals are welcome, and we play rain or shine, but we do ask that you be in high school or older!
Locations and times may vary, and the best way to get involved and included in the updates is to join our text messages by texting SATSOCCER (no spaces) to this number: 84576, and you will automatically be added to our list.

It is with grateful hearts that we invite the congregation to the wedding ceremony
of Eunike Indrawan and Tim Bentson on Saturday, April 15th, at 5pm at Faith

reception, our venue has limited space. Therefore, the reception is by invitation
only. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you all at the
A shower is planned for Eunike on Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship House. Tim and Eunike are planning to move to Osaka, Japan in a year, so they ask that you not give any physical gifts. You can view the registry on their wedding website to see what would help them financially: https://withjoy.com/tim-and-eunike/welcome. You may also contribute to the group gift for a keyboard for Eunike to use while they are in Tacoma. The box for contributions is available in the narthex today and next Lord’s Day.
The second Saturday of April is almost upon us! That means that we'll be serving at the Tacoma Rescue Mission the day before Easter. We need a total of 200 servings of dessert each time (2 cookies per serving). You may put them in the kitchen freezer and mark them with Tacoma Rescue Mission or TRM by noon on Saturday, April 8. Also, please let Sandy Milton know, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), what you're providing and how many so that she can plan accordingly. If you're hoping to help us serve, please let Sandy know that as well. Thank you for sharing in "giving food to the hungry and drink to the thirsty." (Matthew 25: 34-35).

Please click the link here, or talk to Evan Kvale, either in person or through email at email@example.com. Feel free to reach out with any questions or input!
The church is looking to hire a nursery attendant to minister to our covenant children during the 11:00 service. Applicants should be at least 18 years old, have experience with childcare, be able to follow safety and security policies and procedures, and should be regularly attending the alternate morning service. (We do not wish for this position to hinder someone from regular Sunday morning worship!). Please contact the church office if you are interested in applying.
We are making sandwiches here at Faith each week on Thursday mornings at 9:30‐11:45 in DeSoto Hall. Please come and join us if you are able!
We serve a meal at the Tacoma Rescue Mission on the second Saturday of each month. Look for a bulletin announcement with details two weeks ahead of our turn to serve in the following month. If you are hoping to help us serve, please contact Sandy Milton (firstname.lastname@example.org), as you will need to complete a little paperwork a few days prior to your first time serving at the Mission.
