Events & Announcements
Youth Collective ALIVE Winter Camp! March 2-4, $125. We’ll be going to Camp Eagle Fern in Estacada, OR for a weekend to have fun on Mount Hood, grow deeper in relationship with Jesus, and with each other. While both the High School and Middle School students will be at the same location, they will be separate for all activities other than meals and worship. Register on-line today!
Want to know God more in 2018? Then know Jesus more. Jesus said, “If you really know me, you will know my Father as well.” You are invited to join The Word Sunday Adult Bible Class as they look in the Gospels to see more of Jesus – God’s Power in Action! The series begins today at 11 AM in the fireside room. Enjoy friendly fellowship, great bible teaching, service opportunities, and sweet refreshments.
JOLT & PEP, a group for baby boomers and senior adults, will have our monthly potluck & game night on Friday, January 12 at 6 PM in room 120. Bring a main dish, side dish, or a dessert to share with others, and your favorite table game! You may park in the back of the church building (North parking lot) and enter through the door downstairs leading to room 120.
Adult Retreat (formerly Senior Adult Retreat) will be held at the Cannon Beach Conference Center in beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon March 20-22, 2018. Registration has begun and will continue through March 12, 2018. Pastor Bob Christensen will be our speaker. Gift certificates are available, if you are looking for a gift for a loved one. Please see Marla Riley for more info.
The Giving Closet’s donation boxes were moved for drop off ease. You’ll find them located just inside the South and West entrances of the church building.
Boxes of tithe envelopes are available for you to pick up from the Welcome Center today. Our new accounting system software does not track individual donor numbers, therefore all pre-printed giving envelopes are now numberless. For your convenience, giving envelopes are always available in the pew backs, and in the church office.
