UPCOMING EVENTS

  • WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT TRAINING CLASS – Free one day class offered October 11.  The training is open to any volunteer, but especially designed for those who will be serving to manage donated goods warehouses in Salem and Grants Pass, Oregon.  Cathy Kissner, Rocky Mountain Conference ACS director will share the ins and outs of managing a warehouse of donated goods.  You will learn about protocols and best practices fro her years of experience.  Free registration at eventbrite.com/Washington Conference Adventist Disaster Response.
  • PRAYER MEETING – We consider prayer the furnace of the church.  Please come help us stoke up that furnace this Tuesday at 7:00 pm.
  • ALTER THE ALTAR FAMILY WORSHIP – Gather the family for this year’s Alter the Altar family worship project from October 1 through 31!  For the entire month of October, let’s zip our lips against negativity and complaining, an open our mouths wide in praise of our great God.  When you gather the family at the altar for worship each family member will share a praise starting with the words, “I praise Jesus because ….”  Additionally, all petitions will be presented in the form of a praise to God.  Use your imagination and each day you will be adding another “stone” in your altar of praise.  You can download a printable daily Bible Reading Plan at washingtonconference.org/pray.
  • BOARD MEETING – Our board meetings are open meetings on the third Tuesday of every month.  If you have ideas on how we might better do things, or just wish to know what the church is planning to do, please come and let your thoughts be heard.  Our next board meeting is October 20 at 6:00 pm.
