Celebrating 100 Years of
“Ministry and Service” Continues

In November of this year we began to commemorate our centennial by collecting 100 cans of soup for the Foodline. Thanks to the generosity of the congregation, we have collected well over our goal and we’ve got more time left!!!

In our worship service on December 2, we will share the “History of Our Building from the Beginning.”

The 100 Year Planning Team will host a soup luncheon on December 9th during the coffee hour. 

Our goal in December is to collect 100 pairs of socks which will be distributed to several of our partner non-profits who serve the homeless in our community.  We plan to dedicate all of these donations at our Longest Night  Service on Friday, December 21, 2018. Global Missions will share a “Historical Moment” in the worship service on December 9 to remember & honor this work. Be sure to join us with all the festivities and feel part of the our work for Christ in the world. 

Longest Night Vigil 2018
December 21st @ 5:30 p.m.

On the Longest Night of the year, which falls on Friday, December 21st, we will gather outside in our courtyard with people from the Kitsap Interfaith Network and like-minded people, as we remember those who have died this past year in Kitsap County while living on the streets. 

We will join in a brief service remembering also our responsibilities to our neighbors who do not have the resources for life's basic necessities, and to bless the gifts from the community that we have gathered to share with people in need. Dress warm and come join us!
