God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday is September 25th PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

 “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. Maple Leaf Lutheran Church will participate on September 25th.   Mark your calendars today!  

As a congregation, we are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work.  Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. 

Following worship on Sunday, September 25th, we will gather in the Community Hall to make 100 sack lunches for those in need.  All ages and abilities are welcomed to help us complete this project.  The Mission Committee is sponsoring this project and will provide a pizza lunch to all participants following the sack lunch project conclusion.

Rainbow Flags in Support of LGTBQ+ Community outside of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

 On these banners are written the names of the people killed in the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016.  Each a beloved child of God.  Please feel free to use this space as a public memorial to mourn, pray and lament. We join our prayers to the millions who are praying for the families of those who died or are injured.  May God give them comfort, strength and peace.  We are also acting.  For the fifth year in a row we will be marching in the Seattle Pride Parade with numerous other Christians, showing our love and support for the LGTBQ+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Transgendered, Bi-Sexual, Queer, Plus.)  God loves all people unconditionally. We cannot express that strongly enough: GOD LOVES ALL PEOPLE JUST AS THEY ARE. We confess that historically the Church has discriminated against the LGTBQ+ community and for that we repent.  We are actively working to support and welcome LGTBQ+ people here at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church.  All are welcomed to fully participate in this faith community. May God help us in this effort. The People of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church.

 At our May 2016 Synod Assembly we passed a resolution in support of the transgendered community. See link below for the whole resolution. Here at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church we now have two new "All-Gender" signs for two of our restrooms (sacristy & hygenie center) to, in a small way, show our support and love. 

Thanks to My Door Sign, www.mydoorsign.com,  for the signs.
