welcome curt & kathaleen

Letter From assistant pastor curt McFarland

“Through Jesus we have also obtained access by faith into this Grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:2  -  There are several Biblical images for those who return: release from exile, prodigal wanderings, miraculous escapes.  None seemed to fit our return to Grace without applying excessive force to a chosen passage. What does fit for Kathaleen, and for me, is a deep sense of gratitude for the grace...

back to school ... at home?

August 28, 2020

Call Unto Me, And I Will Answer You, And Show You Great And Mighty Things, Which You Do Not Know. Jeremiah 33:3

This verse from Jeremiah is our prayer and hope for Student Ministry. Currently our students are surrounded by the unknown of the school year, but we know God can use this to do great and mighty things. Normal rituals like back to school shopping and first day of school outfits are going to look different with Yakima school district starting the year completely online. While no one knows ...

rejoice

August 21, 202

Letter from Pastor Bill

In Philippians 4.4 Paul writes, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say rejoice!”  Always?  Yes, always.  Even now in the midst of all the chaos, there is still within us the hope and promise of God that allows us to rejoice.  Each day that we are given is a gift from God, planned and orchestrated by God, and we can and will “rejoice and be glad in it”, because we are glad in Him.  I am rejoicing today for what God is doing in and through Grace of Christ.  read more

new sermon series

may 4, 2020 - by bill williamson

I don’t know about you, but I did not imagine that we would still be practicing social distancing and staying at home.  I don’t know if I was prepared for the long haul.  I can endure for two weeks, maybe a month; it can be a bit of exhausting to continue doing what we are doing and not knowing when it will ever end.  Give me a timeline, deadline, and I’m good.  I may procrastinate, but at least I know there’s a finish line, and I will do what I have to do to finish well...
