You are touching lives for God regularly right here in Whatcom County. Thank you members for donating to your food bank.

- Building-based Worship, Study, & Evangelism: Every Wednesday evening (7 PM), and Sunday morning (10 AM) the congregation offers Bible classes for all ages led by gifted teachers who foster hopeful conversation on how God’s Word provides practical insights into our Christ-like living with a godly mind-set. Every Sunday morning (11 AM) the Word of God is preached and songs from the heart are sung to God’s glory. God is worshiped with the New Testament’s biblical pattern in Spirit and in truth. Praise God for your faithfulness and commitment to Him who saved us.
