Post Falls Church members wanted to serve their north Idaho community by providing a series of health events. So, early in January the movie Forks Over Knives was shown at the Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center, housed in a historic old church in the center of town.
Members Alison and Jay Cover have held health classes elsewhere, as they have a passion for people changing lifestyles for better health and longevity. Their own life’s experiences and their occupations in health care made the Covers good fit to oversee this ministry to the community.
God was gracious and gave the Adventurers from Hockinson Heights Adventist Church in Brush Prairie, Wash., a dry day for their trip up the Columbia River Gorge. On April 30, Kalvin Morauske led a group of 13 on a trip to discover things that are best explained by the Bible’s flood but are usually overlooked by the average sightseer.
At Hilltop Adventist School, in Twin Falls, Idaho, the best time of our day is when we slow the pace down to praise our heavenly Father for all His many blessings through prayer, praise, Scripture or chimes.
As we reflect on the past few years at our wonderful school, it gives us an incredible feeling of just how the Holy Spirit has moved, has guided and continues to be present in our work, not only with educating young people but, most importantly, leading them to Jesus.
An emotional crowd gathered in the Better Living Center on May 13, 2017, to wish Chuck and Alta Austin a fond farewell. They were called to Chicago, Ill., Chuck’s hometown, to assist his family and serve the Lord. They were recognized for many years of service within Oregon's Grants Pass Church. There were echoes of “hurry back!” from the many friends made in 21 years in Grants Pass.
David McCoy, Fall Creek (Ore.) Church pastor for the last 15 years, is a Texas boy, and you may still hear a trace of his history in his accent. He worked in the construction trades prior to attending seminary and is truly a man of the people.
Under the leadership of McCoy, this small, rural church is contributing to the physical, social, behavioral and spiritual health of the larger community.
A number of community events have been held in the Fall Creek Event Center, owned and operated by the church, including:
No se nos había ocurrido antes. No fue una idea originada en alguna mente brillante; mas bien estoy convencido que fue un regalo directamente instruido, proporcionado y gestionado por Dios.
Each spring the students at Cascade Christian Academy in Wenatchee, Wash., look forward to week of prayer, especially because the high school class and student association chaplains choose the theme and are the speakers. This year’s theme, “God Is Our Lives,” used the first part of John 15:4 (“Live in Me, and I will live in you”) as the theme Scripture and Rend Collective’s “More Than Conquerors” as the theme song.
Over a couple years the Gaston Church, in connection with the Forest Grove Church, sought to show the movie Hell and Mr. Fudge in the local Forest Theater. Because it was not a Hollywood movie, the owner seemed to have no interest in showing it being shown in this venue.
