Samish Island Septic in 10 Days!

At 8am September23rd, Coast Construction began working on the installation of the new Dining Hall septic system.  It was raining lightly and the existing sight was quite wet and became muddy rapidly as the work requiring equipment movement over the old drain field.  The 4 fir trees were felled and cut into sections, moved off the site, and the waste limbs, etc. were chipped.  The old tank was demolished, the electrical system decommissioned, gravel hauled, some of the equipment staged on the site for installation, etc.

Yeah!!  It is done and operating.  Tonight, October 4th, the Young Adults are at the Camp for their retreat and they are happy to be using the Dining Hall for cooking, eating and their activities.  If we had not met the construction schedule they would have had to use the Samish Church for these activities which would have posed some interesting inconveniences for them.


Estate and Gift Planning

Your Generosity Can Help Move Christ's Mission Forward
Like generations before,  many are responding to the Spirit.  Here are just a few examples of the many stories that are being written thanks to those like yourself who give abundantly to support mission.
A new chapel was built for the Damsite Congregation in the Philippines, to replace the building that was destroyed by a typhoon in 2010.  Your generosity shows people in Ontario, Canada, how to find financial peace and experience the joy of giving through Good Sense Money Management workshops.  It also feeds hungry, elementary-aged youth in Ocala, Florida, on the weekends and teaches children peaceful ways to resolve conflict in Detroit, Michigan.
"The mission of Jesus Christ is what matters most for the journey ahead." 
-Doctrine and Covenants 164:9f
Talk to one of our Estate and Gift Planning specialists and find out how you can leave a legacy of generosity that will support mission for generations to come.
