Walk for Rice a Great Success!


Seven of us made up the JCC team this year for the 27th Annual Walk For Rice event put on by the Asian Counseling and Referral Service. Donations and raised funds go toward stocking the food bank operated by ACRS. Here we are at the start line. Weather was glorious and there were fun performances prior to the walk getting under way. Here the Chinese Girls’ Drill Team did their thing and entertained the crowd.



The skies were blue, Mt. Rainier was out, folks were enjoying the lake on their boats, and it was a great morning for walking…



Tim, Carl, and yes…. Bi-lan coming across the finish line!


Wish we had some photos of our lovely lunch following the walk! Peter grilled hamburgers and sausages for us, Larry made a wonderful Cesar Salad, and Nadine baked a marvelous raspberry (blackberry??) pie for dessert. Thanks to Joyce and Peter for hosting the event!

All Church Retreat & Potluck …
…will be held at the Tsai’s Hood Canal home on Saturday, July 22nd.  Low tide occurs at 9:41 AM so try to arrive around 10:00 AM for the best clam digging.  Carpools will leave JCC at 8:30 AM.  Maps & a carpool signup sheet will be at church.  Please bring a dish to share and put this day on your calendar for a fun day of clam digging, food & fellowship!!  Address is 17041 East State Route 106, Belfair, WA.  Please talk to Peter or Joyce (206-723-9406) if you have questions.

Church Cleaning Day
We’re hoping a good number of folks will be able to come out on Saturday, July 15th at 9:00 a.m. and help us clean outside around the church. We will be working that day especially on the east end of the building. Signs are being repaired and re-done as well so come and be a part of the fun!

Shun Takano will be speaking again at our worship service this Sunday, July 2. Pastor Tim will be preaching on July 9th and 16th. Craig Niiyama will be preaching on July 23rd, and Richard Nakamura will preach on July 30th. It would be great to see you there!

In it together,

Pastor Tim
