The Shelton Church invited members of the fire, sheriff, and police departments to participate in worship on Sabbath, Sept. 11, 2004, and to publicly accept thanks for the wonderful work they do for us. These public servants were visibly moved by the service and touched to be remembered. In addition, they were honored with a potluck dinner.

The Lynnwood Spanish Church began as a dream in the fall of 2001. A number of dedicated members had the idea that a new church should be planted in the Lynnwood area. In August of that year, 20 members discussed the plan and agreed to begin a new branch Sabbath School in the afternoons at the Cypress Adventist School. Sept. 8, 2001, was the first afternoon service with 29 people in attendance and an offering of $17. By the first of December, the group had grown enough that the first morning service was conducted.
