Carols & Crafts

Saturday, December 7th from 10am-noon at St Josephs in Bellevue

Carols & Crafts is a time to share the joy of Christmas with others. Having friends of all ages can lift the spirits of seniors, so infants, children, teens, and adults are invited to spend the morning with the Sisters of St Joseph. Crafts, caroling, and conversation will create a significant time as we step away from the rush of the season and seek to bless these nuns.

We will carpool to St Mary’s on the Lake from the Enatai Park and Ride, beginning at 9:45am. This event costs nothing but your time and attention. To sign up, email

Arbor Hikers

It stands to reason that with a church named Arbor there would be some hikers in our crowd! They’ve not only found each other to hit the trails with, they want to invite YOU to join them! From Lake Serene to Wallace Falls to Annette Lake and beyond, the Arbor Hikers are heading out for adventure a couple Saturdays a month this fall.

Connect with Annette at for more info. See you on the trail!


Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8:30pm at Arbor

GriefShare is a nationally respected program for people coping with the pain and challenge of grief. Having a supportive and empathetic community during a season of grief can significantly cushion a broken heart. Our leaders, Dave and Jill Swenson, have experienced their own share of loss and are able to come alongside others with wisdom and compassion. The group will spend thirteen weeks following a video and discussion format, supplemented by homework in an individual workbook ($15).

While our losses may be unique, they don’t need to isolate us. We look forward to seeing God work through the encouragement of community at such a time as this. For more information, reach out to
