August 28th: Outdoor Worship & Church Picnic:

Join us on Sunday morning, August 28th at 9:30 am for worship at Magnuson Park (7400 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle) followed by a picnic. This will be our Sunday morning worship for that day so please don’t show up at church, we won’t be there, we’ll be at the park! 

Directions: We will gather at “SHELTER ONE” which is the most southern shelter just south of the boat launch area.  Enter at NE 65th street entrance, drive straight towards the lake.  The boat launch parking is obvious.  The CAR parking is parallel parking all around the periphery of this lot.  Our site is a large shelter with 8 tables.

What to bring: Bring your own lawn chairs or blanket to sit on. The Family Ministry committee will provide charcoal, plates, napkins, cups, plastic cutlery and bottled water. Please bring a potluck dish or food to share AND something to grill. As there is a large open area to the south of the shelter, crochet, volleyball, other such games are possible if you bring your equipment. 

Other information: This will be a casual event so feel free to wear shorts, swim suits or something comfortable. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends and family to a laid back, fun worship service. We have the site reserved from 8am to 2pm so come and have a great time.

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.
