Salt House Families Gathering

Salt House Families Gathering

WE’VE MOVED THIS EVENT TO SALT HOUSE BECAUSE OF THE LARGE NUMBER OF RSVPs!

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).

You are invited to join us as we gather on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Salt House. RSVP HERE - https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054cada62aa2fd0-september

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).

Community Movie Night - Coco

Community Movie Night - Coco

Everyone is invited to a special evening at Salt House for a community movie night. We'll have snacks and drinks on-hand. Kids can bring sleeping bags and sit on the floor to watch Coco (Rated PG). Let us know you'll be there - RSVP on FACEBOOK.

"Coco is a movie about borders more than anything—the beauty in their porousness, the absolute pain produced when a border locks you away from your family. The conflict in the story comes from not being able to cross over; the resolution is that love pulls you through to the other side. The thesis of the movie is that families belong together." - https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/coco-a-story-about-borders-and-love-is-a-definitive-movie-for-this-moment

Worship at Salt House

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.

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, June 16 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm (ish) at Cory and Stephanie Cuthbertson's home in Bellevue (address provided upon RSVP to rachelh@salthousechurch.org)

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).
