On the first Sunday of each month our deacons collect an offering after the morning service. The funds collected are used to help members of our congregation that are facing financial hardship.

You can make a donation at any given time by designating your offering as “Deacons Fund.”

We have sent teams several years to build houses in Baja California, Mexico.

Also, our collegiate ministry team makes a trip  regionally or nationally to serve God during Spring Break at Central Washington University each year. In 2013, they went to Vancouver, B. C., to serve with a church plant there. In 2016 they went to Chehalis Washington to help with the SAFE project there.


The Courtesy Committee sends cards to encourage people. We send cards to the sick, to our military personnel, to encourage in case of personal tragedy, to lift up the ones that are afflicted.

We are in need of cards, envelopes and stamps. You can drop them in the office.
