Summer Prayer

Please take a moment to watch this video message from Pastor Ryan:

Please send your prayer requests to We look forward to joining together in prayer.

Thank You Group Leaders!

As spring comes to an end and home group and learning group leaders prepare for summer break, here is a very special message for you (and fun group leaders, even though fun groups don’t take a break for summer, this message is for you too!):


If you lead a home group, here are a couple of reminders:

  • Try to get a sense of who plans to return in the fall and if your group will have openings for new members.
  • Let Sarah know when your group begins summer break so that she can turn off your email attendance reminders (they will be turned back on in the fall).

Leaders, may you be refreshed and renewed this summer and blessed in the season to come.

You’re Invited to The Silent Wild

silent wild

Imagine this: you take the picturesque drive to Mount Rainier National Park. You leave all electronics behind and venture into the woods, listening only to the sounds of nature. As you make yourself comfortable on a rock overlooking a majestic landscape, you hear something else. Or maybe it’s not so much hearing as it is a feeling in your soul. The voice of God. Embrace the rest, the wilderness and rejuvenate your spirit on The Silent Wild.

There will be two opportunities to participate this summer. The first is Saturday, July 9th and for those who prefer a weekday option, the second takes place on Monday, August 22nd.

You are strongly encouraged to sign up for one (or both!) of these opportunities. A sample itinerary is below and carpools can be arranged. Encourage members of your home groups to sign up as well. RSVP by clicking your preferred date below.

Sample Itinerary for The Silent Wild

Are You Ready For Summer?

still waters

Dear Home Group Leaders,

As this year comes to an end, you are being led to the still waters of summer where you will find a season of rest. As you bring your group to a break for the summer, think about ending with a BBQ,  potluck, or a group outing (think bowling or baseball).

If your group would like to stay connected throughout the summer, participate in a Fun Group together such as Bridge, Cribbage, Outdoor Games, Golfing or Hiking.

Another option is The Silent Wild. There will be two opportunities to participate this summer on Saturday, July 30th and Monday, August 22. The link to register for one (or both!) will be posted in a couple of weeks, so please share it with your home groups and sign up together.

Lastly, as you prepare for the summer break, please take note of which group members will be returning in the Fall, how many openings you’ll have for new members, and if the meeting location/day/frequency/time will change or remain the same. Sarah Biggerstaff will be reaching out to you in the next few weeks to collect this information in order to better prepare for the annual Group Connect event in September.

Peace be with you and remember to wear sunscreen SMILEY-FACE-EMOTICON
