Sunday School Picnic -  Vancouver

The Vancouver Congregation will be holding our annual Sunday School Picnic this Sunday June 26 immediately following church.  Bring a side dish or a salad and after lunch we'll head over to Slocan Park for all sorts of games and sports! Don't forget your sunscreen!

Adult Reunion in Review

"Last week 30 people gathered at Samish Camp for the Samish Adult Reunion.  Guest Ministers for the event were Apostle Scott Murphy (a member of the Samish Congregation for 9 years in the 1980s) and GPNW MC Congregational Support Minister, Shari Amos from Oregon.  The weeks ministry focused on D&C 164.  Each day featured a prayer service, class and an evening worship service.  Outstanding food was shared and much visiting and sharing occupied our time and brought us a great deal of joy.  Those attending expressed intent to return and sharing again in this wonderful spiritual experience.  As Director I am hopeful that the attendance next year will grow because we had about 15 less than our annual average this year."
