At some point in our life we will all experience loss through the death of a loved one, friend, or someone we’ve known. But there are different kinds of losses, I think we’ve been a witness to that with the covid-19 virus. How could this happen so fast?
In the process of focusing on the deaths from this virus, I started having a conversation with God. How can we as followers of Jesus bring some hope to all the different people who are feeling the loss of joy, loss of hope, loss of jobs, and loss of life as we have known it here in America.
The mission of the Community Engagement Team (CET) is to encourage our congregation to reach out to our community with the love and message of Jesus Christ. We do this by providing outreach training for the DCC family. We explore the local area for outreach opportunities by continually exegeting the Sequim community. We then inform the elders and pastoral staff to see if these opportunities are a good fit for DCC in a given season. An ongoing goal of the Community Engagement Team is to build relationships of trust and goodwill with community leaders.
Can you feel it? Fall is in the air! The fresh leaves of Spring are becoming discolored and dry. Cold sneaks in with the morning air. The sun bids goodnight to the moon a little earlier each evening. And Summer has started its migration to the other side of our planet.
You might not think of the Pacific Northwest as being home to a surf community, but it is! The Pacific NW Christian Surfers started gathering over their love for Surfing and God. What started in a coffee shop in Sequim, has grown into a full fledged surf ministry. Their mission: “Bringing People to Christ through Living Water.” In this article, Pacifiic NNW Christian Surfers co-founder, George Crabb, shares the story of how it all started and where they are headed from here.
