Safe Haven Training

Safe Haven Training

Safe Haven Training on Monday, March 4, 2018 at 11:00am at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church.

Here at Salt House, we value the personhood of everyone who walks through our doors. We must also be intentional in making our faith community safe. Our congregation cannot ignore this reality. In God’s love, we must respond with direct, positive, and preventative actions to build and sustain our congregation as a safe place for all children, youth and adults. We do this through Safe Haven Training, a program supported through our parent congregation, Holy Spirit Lutheran Church. 

Creating a Safe Haven community at Salt House includes:

  • A screening process to assure that all persons working with children and/or vulnerable adults can provide a healthy and safe place. 
  • A training component to build awareness and provide skills that help us be sensitive and alert to abusive situations and an appropriate loving response.
  • An expectation that all those who provide care for those under 18 and vulnerable adults will undergo training once every three years. 

All adults working with our children and youth programs need to attend the training one time. Safe Haven training is conducted throughout the year so all have a chance to attend prior to working with our Salt House Kids programs. The times for 2017-18 include the following:

  • Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 12:15pm at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church
  • Monday, January 22, 2018 at 7:00pm at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church
  • Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 11:00am at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church
  • Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 7:30pm at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church

Watch for additional dates at Salt House as our congregation grows.  
Childcare is available, but must be arranged two weeks in advance of each session.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Join us on Wednesday, February 14 at 7:00pm for our Ash Wednesday service. Ash Wednesday kicks off the season of Lent, a season of journeying with Jesus to the cross.

During Lent, we will engage in asking questions about suffering, mortality, pain, and what it means to live fully in the midst of uncertainty and the inevitability of death.

pauses_for_lent.jpg

During the season of Lent, we will be reading a devotional book together called Pauses for Lent; a beautifully minimalist book that focuses on one word for each day of Lent. You are invited to pause, focus on the word, read a scripture and a brief meditation related to the word, and then offer a prayer. Pausing in this way will help you carve out time for God and refresh your spirit even in the midst of a busy life. 

Copies of the book are available at Salt House on Sunday mornings. $7.00 per copy.

Salt House Families Gathering

Salt House Families Gathering

At Salt House, one of the things we do on a regular basis is gather families with young(ish) kids together someone's home for a time of connection and food (potluck style).  We'd like you to know you're invited to jump in as we are gathering on Saturday, February 10th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm (ish) at Jill and Bob Benoit’s home in Kirkland (Address provided upon RSVP to rachelh@salthousechurch.org)

Jill and Bob will be providing a wonderful meal of chicken tortilla soup (adults) and quesadillas (kids).  You are invited to bring side dish, salad or dessert!

If you're joining the gathering for first time it usually goes like this: We eat all together (usually the kids eat first) in a bit of chaos! Then we send the kids off to the basement or another space with a couple of sitters, while the parents have an hour to eat, talk about what's happening in our lives, what we're experiencing in our faith, and pray together. 

These gatherings are very social, but also spiritually rich with conversations that open us up to the reality of what it means to people who are aiming to raise our kids in faith. It's just really, really good.

Oh, and we usually all chip in to cover the cost of the sitters (About $10 per family).

Worship at Salt House

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

WE ARE CANCELLING OUR WORSHIP SERVICE ON SUNDAY DEC. 31.

As we approach the end of 2017, it's a great time to stop, take a moment, a deep breath and pause...the passing of one year to the next. It's a moment of change and we at Salt House think one of the best things we can do is be present with friends and family on the last day of the year! Celebrate well and we'll see you again on the first Sunday in 2018!


Worship at Salt House is designed to be an experiment; trial and error, full of the sacred and flavored with sometimes silly things that happen when make human plans in an effort to engage with the divine. We are not perfect people and we worship in imperfect ways, but we want to trust in God's leading.  

Here are some things you can expect when you come to worship at Salt House:

Singing // Music helps us orient ourselves.  Learn as you go + sing as you feel comfortable. We use modern music and practices informed by the church's historical and liturgical traditions.

Teaching // We teach through an interactive time of engaging the countless intersections between the Bible + Jesus + our lives + our world.

Reflection + Response // A quiet moment with music, prayer, listening to God + choosing a response for now or the week to come.

Communion // As Jesus showed us, we take bread + dip it in wine to remember God’s generosity and presence with + in us.

Salt House Kids // We have childcare available during worship for kids from birth to 8 years old (older if necessary). We always have at least 2 people on duty and everyone who works with children is background checked.

Advent, the four darkest weeks of the year before Christmas, is a time for slowing down, paying attention, and making room in our lives. YET. The expectations we feel to shop, party, cook, and eat – clutter our days -   often leaving us scattered, stressed and short wicked.

So this Advent, we’re MAKING ROOM.   Making room in our week, and in our being to receive the light that is coming. 

Most importantly, we are making room for You to Join us for 4 FREE weekly Advent Yoga sessions.  Together, we will breathe, listen, strengthen our bodies and spirits to MAKE ROOM for Christmas.
