Retreats

Most years, we get away for a weekend in the Fall. We get to know each other better, laugh, serve, and pray. This is a fun getaway weekend of fun and faith!

Adult Volunteers

Have you been missing seeing the youth in church? Do you want to know more about the lives of our wonderful young people? Do you want to have fun and grow in faith? We need adults to help with out with our Zoom meetings and to help with our monthly gatherings. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Director of Youth and Family Ministries Doug Johnson, doug@salc.church or 425-746-2529. The only thing you need to know how to do is use Zoom and listen to our youth!
