Singing Inspires Anchorage Community

December 12, 2017 / Alice Moncher

The sweet sound of gospel music was heard at the Alaska Native Medical Center in October 2016 and will continue as long as God’s dedicated people are there each Sabbath afternoon. That's thanks to the music ministry of the Northside Church of Anchorage, Alaska.

Recently the Alaska Conference received letter and donation from the Five Oaks Adventist Christian School in Durham, N.C., for the support of Arctic Missionary Volunteer Elouise Hawkes. The church school students, along with other children from the Five Oaks Church, participated in a bike-a-thon fundraiser, a part of which went to supporting Hawkes’ work in Savoonga, Alaska. This small village of about 800 Native Alaskans lies close to the Arctic Circle, at the northeast tip of St. Lawrence Island, just off the coast of Siberia.

We almost missed out. We almost lost the chance for three young Pathfinders to publicly choose to follow Jesus, but, by God’s grace, we experienced His blessings.

As the only Pathfinder club from Alaska at the 2017 North Pacific Union Conference Pathfinder Camporee in Twin Falls, Idaho, our Juneau Black Bears were thrilled to represent the Alaska Conference. They received special greetings and attention from other Pathfinders around the Pacific Northwest, but they also recognized how many fellow brothers and sisters they had in other states.

Over the years, people often tell me they want to do something significant for God. They don't feel their lives have made an impact in the way they hear in mission stories or evangelism reports. They feel they have not done enough to advance the kingdom and would like the adventure of doing something great for Jesus.

Ever since H.M.S. Richards took to the air waves in the United States and Adventist World Radio started taking the Three Angels Messages to the world via short wave radio, others have been sending God’s last message to a lost and dying world through radio. Following in this tradition, Alaska has been using radio to reach native Alaskans.

How many of you are inventors? Can you imagine inventions and God in the same sentence? If you can, then you should have been at Northside Church in Anchorage, Alaska, during the end of July. The basement was transformed into the Maker Fun Factory Vacation Bible School filled with incredible Bible stories, Sciency-Fun Gizmo, team-building games, cool Bible songs and tasty treats.
