Events & Announcements

Study of the Gospel of Luke with the Friendship Bible Class beginning today! Some deem Luke’s account of Jesus’ life the fullest, most orderly version. It has been called “the most beautiful book ever written.” Come and decide for yourself! All ages are welcome. Class meets on Sundays at 11 AM in room 120.

Ladies Bunco Party! Monday, January 29 in the fireside room. The event begins at 6 PM with a time for fellowship. Bunco starts at 6:30 PM and finishes by 8 PM.

Childcare will not be provided for this event.

Women, you’re invited to a new study, The Armor of God. As God’s daughter, you have a spiritual enemy trying to ruin your Father’s purpose for this world and your life. The enemy’s battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you! The Armor of God starts Wednesday, January 31 at 6 PM in room 120. Call Nancy, 360-601-6038 to reserve your workbook. Cost is $13.
