About Supper  You need not attend supper before the service, but many come straight from work and appreciate that a meal is prepared and waiting when they arrive. We provide the main entrée (a vegetarian option is always available). We ask those who come to bring a side dish, salad, fruit, or dessert to share if they are able. We do not charge for this meal.

Additional Narrative about the Service  Silence and contemplation are integral parts of this service. Our lighting is subdued and candles add warmth and light to our worship service. Those who attend the service have described it as a wonderful, powerful, and restorative with a relaxed and deeply sacred feeling. Those who attend Saint Michael’s comment that this service is one they feel comfortable inviting friends and family from outside the church to attend. We think you’ll enjoy the 40-minute service for many of these reasons and more!

Saint Michael’s is a lively, warm, and friendly congregation. We celebrate our faith in significant and fun-loving ways, always aiming to bring faith to life in the heart of Issaquah. We at Saint Michael’s dream that everyone will experience the expression of God’s love, ever more enriched by the diversity of God’s own humanity among us. Love is expansive, inclusive and knows no bounds. We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery as we seek to love and serve God, each other, and all creation.
