Life Baskets

We are doing an outreach initiative leading up to Easter this year. We will be sharing a Life Basket with a neighbor, coworker, friend, etc. before March 31. Please pray about who you might invest in. Now is the time for you to join us! Come by the table after our worship service to get your basket or two. You will be able to add to your basket and customize it for the person/family you will be sharing with.

Save the Date: VBS 2024

VBS 2024 Break Rock Beach will be June 3-7. Kids will be challenged as they discover that God’s truth never changes! Adventure awaits each day as kids explore tide pools, spot orcas, fly kites, and watch the mighty waves crash up against the immovable Breaker Rock!

VBS is the one week that mobilizes the entire church to reach the community with the gospel, while simultaneously providing a unique discipleship experience for the individual child and volunteer. Say Yes to VBS!
