Rainbow Alliance Supports Inclusion. The Wider Welcome Ministry Team invites you to join with us at a gathering of the Rainbow Faith Alliance on Sunday, May 21, at 7:30 p.m. This group meets monthly as an allyship within the Christian community to support inclusion. This month David Thompson will share the journey of his family with their transgender son.
The group meets at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 17625 NW Cornell Road, Beaverton 97006. Refreshments will be provided.
What Are We Singing This Week? Check out the hymn commentaries in the worship folder. They are interesting, informative, and helpful for enhancing our worship and praise. Thank you, Tim Ditch, for your valuable history lessons.
Council Update. Congregation Treasurer Diane Wearne will give a financial update during Sunday’s worship service. Tune in to hear some good news and some of the plans the council is considering. We are hopeful and we are realistic about where and how the Holy Spirit is leading us into the future. Let’s get our walking shoes on and follow!
The American Red Cross is looking for volunteers to help on occasional Fridays registering blood donors here at Christ the King. The hours are 1:20 to 6:50 p.m. They would love to find two or three backup volunteers who can come in approximately once a month to help.
As a Red Cross registration volunteer, you greet donors, thank them for coming in, highlight their name on our schedule, make them a name tag, scan their ID into our laptop, and make sure they have completed their paperwork. You’ll also answer questions such as: Where are the restrooms? Do you have openings? When is the next blood drive?
Volunteers are trained in advance and/or on the day of the drive. There is always a team of Red Cross employees available to support the volunteer as well.
Typically, it’s one person per shift, but you could also work as a two-person team or divide up the time into two shifts (2.5-3 hours each). Volunteers must be comfortable writing and using a laptop, as well as sitting for the 5.5-hour shift.
If you’re interested, contact Jeanie at [email protected] or 503‑866‑2023.
