Join Seattle Community Church & Friends - Caroling Team in The Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition this year. The team will sing a certain 2011 dance-pop song, re-written to capture the creative Christian spirit (Jesus parody lyrics). SCC and Friends - the proud winners of People's Choice in 2012 and Most Creative in 2013. If you ever wanted to sing to a few thousand people, it's a good chance to get that off your bucket list. It's for a good cause also. Approximately 40 teams compete, last year raising over $100,000 for Pike Market Senior Center and Downtown Food Bank.
Hosted by Northwest Coast Presbytery at Tierra Nueva in Burlington. Healthy Boundaries: Beyond the Basics 201 is a refresher course with two new topics. In this shorter workshop you will be reminded of the need for healthy boundaries and good self-care. We will review the reality of power, and the policies & procedures necessary to protect vulnerable children, youth, & adults in your congregations. And we will consider the boundary challenges posed by finances and social media. The presentations will include material from the new FaithTrust Institute’s 201 course of the same name.
