Exploring the Enneagram Group

Exploring the Enneagram Group

Explore the Enneagram during a five-week session starting Oct. 8, 2019. We will use the book The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. We meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Salt House.

The Road Back to You available on Amazon.com for about $15.00

Ignorance is bliss―except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships―and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach―a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Witty and filled with stories, this book allows you to peek inside each of the nine Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you have read the chapter about your own number. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help take you further along into who you really are―leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

If you’re joining us for the first time, please know that you are welcome here. And not just welcomed, but completely affirmed — no matter what. If you want to know a little more about what it means to be welcomed and affirmed at Salt House, just check out this blog post.

Our parking lot has limited space due to construction of the New Eastside Shelter for Women and Families. There is a good amount of street parking available on 120th Avenue. We’ve also encouraged regular attenders at Salt House to utilize some other parking alternatives in order to leave space for guests and folks with limited mobility.

WHAT TO EXPECT: COFFEE + KIDS + CONNECTIONS

  • You will be welcomed by a friendly face and an invitation to participate on whatever level is comfortable for you.

  • Coffee and Tea are available in our lobby. You are more than welcome to bring it with you into our sanctuary space. And when we eat a meal together, please pull up a chair and dig in. Even (and especially) if you didn’t bring anything to the potluck.

  • Kids ages 0-4 can check-in and dropped off at our nursery and will be cared for by our amazing staff and capable volunteers. Elementary aged kids ages 5-10 can be signed in and join you in the sanctuary space for the first 10-15 minutes of our worship service. They will be dismissed to go with our Salt House Kids leader, Rachel. If you or you child would like to stay in the sanctuary the entire time, that is perfectly fine.

  • You’ll get a worship booklet with general info about Salt House and materials for the morning’s experience.

  • We’ll sing together, spend sometime in conversation, pray, hear words from scripture, experience excellent preaching and storytelling, and have an opportunity to engage in at least one of our core practices.

If you feel led, you are absolutely welcome to receive communion. Our bread is allergen-free and we serve both wine and non-alcoholic grape juice.

Communion Class #2
Oct

Communion Class #2

Join us for Communion Classes at Salt House to learn about the centrality of the sacrament in our community life. This class is available to kids in first grade or older AND also to adults who are interested in learning more about this ancient practice.

ABOUT THESE CLASSES:

Holy Communion is considered one of the two sacraments in the Lutheran (ELCA) church (Baptism is the other). This means that we believe that something happens, that God is present in a wonderful way in the everyday things of bread and wine/juice.

No one ever fully understands the mystery of Jesus’ presence in this meal, but 1st grade is an engaging age to have a conversation about it (knowing that some kids will join in the conversation when they're older for various reasons).

The structure of our Communion Class experience is to have two classes (with intentional at-home conversations for families in-between the two). The experience culminates on a Sunday morning set aside as the First Communion Sunday (for kids), where our whole Salt House community celebrates this important faith milestone in the lives of our children.

1st Class: Oct. 13th, 11:30-1:00pm

2nd Class: Oct. 27th, 11:30-1:00pm

First Communion Sunday: Nov. 10th during worship

We continue to sculpt the experience of Communion Classes, recognizing that we all come from various backgrounds. Please let Rachel Horton know of any questions, concerns, or ideas.

Salt House Families Gathering

Salt House Families Gathering

Please Sign up to let us know you’re coming — SIGN UP GENIUS!


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). 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 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. 

We are looking for 2 sitters to help on the night of the Family Gathering.  If you have a regular babysitter you think might be available, please consider contacting them and booking them for the evening. Thanks in advance! 

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

Nativity Play - Salt House Kids

Join us on Sunday, Dec. 15 for the first ever SALT HOUSE NATIVITY PLAY!

Does your child want to participate? Here's what you need to know:

  • ALL kids are welcome. There are enough parts for everyone! Speaking, not-speaking, singing, sitting, small, big, etc. There's a wide variety!

  • We will practice some of the songs on Sundays, but your child will still need to practice at home. Children with speaking parts will also need to work on memorizing lines at home. Don't worry! The play is made for kids, so lines are short and rhyming (easy to memorize). Materials and resources will be handed out in mid-November.

  • There will be a rehearsal after service on December 8th.

  • If needed, I may schedule an extra rehearsal for the lead parts and singers -- I will communicate later with those families to make sure it works for everyone.

  • There will be a short rehearsal before service on December 15th.

  • Performance is Dec. 15th (the 3rd Sunday of Advent) during service. Everyone is welcome!

Let me (Rachel) know if you have any questions! And if this sounds like fun to you, please stop by the SHK desk over the next couple weeks to let your kid's sign-up!

If you want to help with the Nativity Play, send me a mail! I could always use help with sets, props, costumes, and (or course) working with the kids :)

Congregational Meeting

Dear Salt House Community, We are excited for changes happening at Salt House! Pastor Sara and the Salt House Church Council invite you to attend a special congregational meeting on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 11:00am. We will be voting on potential upcoming changes to our budget because of proposed staffing changes. Pastor Sara outlined those changes in her sermon on Sunday, Sept. 8. You can watch that video here (https://youtu.be/yNL2GZJMvOo). Or watch a summary video below.

These staffing changes are for a finite time, strategically focused on key areas we want to grow and deepen our community and our impact beyond our walls - growth we are ready for. This growth will ask of us to expand our individual and collective investment in Salt House - again, growth and generosity we're ready for.

On Sunday, Sept. 22, there will be a presentation of the voting items, including the financial impact during worship, followed by an optional forum during our meal after worship where you can ask all your questions.

Thank you for all the ways you support and participate in the life of our community - it is such a gift to be on this journey, following God's leading, together! On September 29th, our collective voice continues to shape that road - see you then!

Worship at Salt House

JOIN US FOR WORSHIP AT SALT HOUSE

If you’re joining us for the first time, please know that you are welcome here. And not just welcomed, but completely affirmed — no matter what. If you want to know a little more about what it means to be welcomed and affirmed at Salt House, just check out this blog post.

Our parking lot has limited space due to construction of the New Eastside Shelter for Women and Families. There is a good amount of street parking available on 120th Avenue. We’ve also encouraged regular attenders at Salt House to utilize some other parking alternatives in order to leave space for guests and folks with limited mobility.

WHAT TO EXPECT: COFFEE + KIDS + CONNECTIONS

  • You will be welcomed by a friendly face and an invitation to participate on whatever level is comfortable for you.

  • Coffee and Tea are available in our lobby. You are more than welcome to bring it with you into our sanctuary space. And when we eat a meal together, please pull up a chair and dig in. Even (and especially) if you didn’t bring anything to the potluck.

  • Kids ages 0-4 can check-in and dropped off at our nursery and will be cared for by our amazing staff and capable volunteers. Elementary aged kids ages 5-10 can be signed in and join you in the sanctuary space for the first 10-15 minutes of our worship service. They will be dismissed to go with our Salt House Kids leader, Rachel. If you or you child would like to stay in the sanctuary the entire time, that is perfectly fine.

  • You’ll get a worship booklet with general info about Salt House and materials for the morning’s experience.

  • We’ll sing together, spend sometime in conversation, pray, hear words from scripture, experience excellent preaching and storytelling, and have an opportunity to engage in at least one of our core practices.

  • We have communion every Sunday and everyone is invited. We practice open communion at Salt House which means you don’t have to be a member at Salt House (or any church) to participate. If you feel led, you are absolutely welcome to receive communion. Our bread is allergen-free and we serve both wine and non-alcoholic grape juice.

  • As worship ends, we usually talk about Ways We Respond (a.k.a., giving info, announcements, and engagement opportunities). You can always find out about upcoming events on our events page.

  • After worship, join us for a meal, conversation, more coffee, and an opportunity to receive prayer with someone on our care or pastoral team.

We don’t have a dress code, so whatever you’re comfortable wearing is perfect for coming to Salt House.

Worship + Meal at Salt House

Potluck this Sunday.png

On Sunday, Aug 18 we will share a potluck meal at Salt House following worship.

We learn how to love as we learn how to listen.

To listen. At Salt House, we have a core practice of Hearing God - capturing how we believe that there is holiness all around us, that a Jesus-centered life is one of paying attention and listening. One way we do this is through our regular practice of Lectio Divina - in worship on Sunday, we listen to a passage of scripture, hearing God, hearing connections to our lives and world now. It is that simple - as we build in us the practice of listening, as we learn how to love. Don't miss this Sunday as we hold this practice in the homestretch of our Forming Questions summer series!

Matthew 5:38-48 (The Message)


Join us for our regular worship gathering at Salt House starting at 10:00am! We gather, we sing, and pray. We spend some time connecting with each other and with God.

Salt House Families Gathering

Salt House Families Gathering

Please Sign up to let us know you’re coming — https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B054CADA62AA2FD0-salt1


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). 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 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. 

We are looking for 2 sitters to help on the night of the Family Gathering.  If you have a regular babysitter you think might be available, please consider contacting them and booking them for the evening. Thanks in advance! 

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