The Season of Creation

Special attention will be given to social justice and advocacy, especially environmental issues, and climate change. Specially designed vestments, altar cloths, and nature-themed decorations are an integral part of the worship service. The Season of Creation will culminate on October 8, The Feast of St. Francis, with the Blessing of Animals.
Meet Our Vicar
Blessings to you. I’d like to invite you to join us as We Grow in God to Serve the Community. We are people of all ages and places who worship as one body in Christ keep community and serve God in the world. If you want to know the stories of the Christian faith, belong to a welcoming community, and serve others, you will find a place to explore those things and more. If you want relevant sermons and reverent worship, you will find them in a relaxed and joy-filled community. We believe we have something to offer you and your family AND we trust you have something to offer us. May God richly bless you as you seek a place to explore your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Reaching Out To the Snoqualmie Valley
St. Clare's Essentials
Our Next Distribution is Wednesday, October 11, 2023
One of the ministries of St. Clare’s Episcopal Church is to sponsor the Essentials Closet for the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank. We accept donations of necessary paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels, disinfectant wipes etc., personal care items such as feminine products, incontinence products, tooth paste, body soap, shampoo etc., and cleaning supplies. We have also partnered with Bombas Socks to provide socks for clients of the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank, and Reclaim Shelter Services, and Trail Youth Coffee House. Any financial donations will be used for the purchase of these items for distribution at the food bank. More specific information about this month’s distribution can be found HERE. If you would like to find out more information or would like to donate, please contact us at email@example.com
It’s more than knitting! We knit, crochet, and quilt prayer shawls (to wrap yourself in) and lapghans (to drape over your legs,) and make teddy bears to comfort people suffering from illness or trauma. Since inception in August of 2019, we have made over 300 prayer shawls and numerous quilts, hats, scarves and lapghans. They have been sent throughout the United States, Switzerland, Germany, and Australia.
This opportunity is open to anyone, not just members of St. Clare’s. Want to learn to knit? We can arrange zoom lessons. If you would like to participate in our knitters ministry or know of someone in need, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Providing Meals for Reclaim
Reclaim is the home of shelter services for the Snoqualmie Valley.
At St Clare’s Church, we believe in extending compassion and support to those in need, and providing shelter meals is a meaningful way to fulfill that commitment. By offering nourishing meals to individuals who are experiencing homelessness or facing challenging circumstances, we aim to address their immediate physical needs and create a safe and welcoming environment for them. These meals not only provide sustenance, but they also serve as a beacon of hope, reminding individuals that they are valued and cared for by their community. Through our collective efforts, we strive to alleviate hunger, foster a sense of belonging, and inspire positive change in the lives of those we serve.
You do not need to be a member of St. Clare’s to participate in this ministry.

St. Clare's Garden Ministry
St. Clare’s is blessed to have a certified master gardener as a member. Under Anne Neilson’s direction, we provide organic vegetables to the Snoqualmie Valley Food bank from early spring through late fall. We are grateful to the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley and the Diocese of Olympia for their support enabling us to take care of God’s creation through prudent use of resources.
