Fellowship (aka Fun) Groups Connect People

In addition to our other small groups, we want to create fellowship groups that enjoy similar interests. Ron Rice’s hiking group is an example. Like to bake or craft? Enjoy movies or music? Have a hobby? Host a group that shares that interest! You can decide when, where to meet (Admiral Theater?), etc. Contact Madeline (; 206-935-4477) for ideas and advertising support. Note: We also want more Bible study groups, too. Let Madeline know if you would like to host or lead one!

Sunday Education @ 9am

THROUGH SEPTEMBER: Video Series: Walking with God in the Desert, a new set of films in That the World May Know series. We have used these outstanding films over the years as each new series has been released. Filmed in Israel, Egypt and South Sinai, renowned teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan illuminates the historical, geographical and cultural context of the land of the Bible and then draws spiritual application. Each film is self-contained, so be sure to come even if you miss a Sunday or two.

Sermon Series

Preaching Today – Reverend Keith Tanis is our Bridge Pastor.

Preparing for Next Week…It’s About Time Series: Discerning the Times

The tribe of Issachar …had an understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do. Conduct yourself wisely toward the outsider, making the most of the time… 1 Chronicles 12: 23 & 32, Colossians 4: 2-6
Take “time” to reflect on these Scriptures by considering:
1. What about these times don’t we understand or know what to do, but need to learn in order to live into God’s future?
2. How do people outside the church perceive people inside the church these days?
