Let’s Beautify Tacoma – Trainings

For the 33rd year, Associated Ministries will be bringing together volunteers to help paint the homes of low-income homeowners.  Through our program, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful, we have painted nearly 2,200 homes!

Crew leads receive a 2-hour training to review safety, tips for prepping and painting a home, and selection of a project.  Crews are typically 5-15 people, and individuals are welcome to sign up and attend a training as well.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome; younger volunteers must have adult supervision.  Painting typically happens in July and August of each year, but can extend if the weather is cooperative.  All trainings will be held in the garage of Associated Ministries.  To learn more about how to support the program, you can visit www.associatedministries.org/ptpb.

More About An Act of Love Film
This gripping documentary follows Rev. Frank Schaefer as he was put on trial in the United Methodist Church for officiating his son’s same-sex wedding. The Schaefer family was pulled into a movement for LGBTQ equality in the nation’s second largest protestant denomination. “An Act of Love” follows Rev. Schaefer’s journey from small-town minister to outspoken advocate, as well as the ongoing debate in the United Methodist Church over LGBTQ inclusion.
