Here is the June Benedictions. There is a lot going on in our church community. Be informed so we can make decisions together. Click on "Full Article" to see the link.
Please sign up for our ALL CHURCH Potluck Friday, July 17th 6PM. It is time for us to talk together about our future. There is NO DECISION made at this time about which direction to go. Instead, this is a time of discernment for the WHOLE CHURCH, not just the BC.
Your BC chose to do this because we recognize that being a smaller church in the 21st Century means examining all our resources carefully so that we live within our means with ABUNDANCE so that we are not just scraping by but living fully as a mission to proclaiming Christ’s Kingdom in the World!

Time for Sunday Services at St. Benedict is changing for the Summer!
Beginning on July 5, there will only be one service on Sunday. This will be at 9:30. There will be no 8:00 nor
10:30. Consolidated Sunday service at 9:30 will continue throughout July and August. In appreciation of some
desiring a more contemplative service, ONE service during each month will have NO music accompanying the liturgy.
There will be no music on July 5 and August 2. Music will accompany other services. The primary reason for this
All Church Potluck + Conversation about different Ways of Doing Church

Senior Warden Christ Church Puyallup

Priest at St. Mark Montesano

The primary discussion was devoted to following up on the recent Mutual Ministry Review (MMR), May 9. At the MMR we affirmed that St Benedict is in a period of discernment to review different models of ministry. It was decided that as we transition from having George as our vicar, to use this time to consider with the congregation, the models of ministry which could best enable SBC to do what God is calling us to do. When George accepts a new call we will ask the Bishop for an interim priest, and continue examining different models as part of our Search.
