Want to support our students as they head out to Ukraine to support the Reimers? We are going to be doing a Date Night Fundraiser on Friday, April 5th from 5:30-8 pm here at the church. Children will be overseen by our team of adults and students, and we’ll put out the bounce house and do a craft. We’ll do a light GF & DF snack for everyone, and you can also sign your kid up for a Costco Pizza Dinner if you’d like (sorry, we’re not able to do GF & DF dinners).

How should the awe of God change the way we live? We were designed to reflect His glory! When we lose sight of the majesty of God we will fill our view of life with the majesty of something else. Join us for our Women’s Spring Brunch as we look at the Attributes of God that should guide our worship and frame the view of our lives! We’ll meet in the Chapel from 10am-noon. Childcare up to age eight is available. Please sign up with what item you will bring and if you can help with set up or clean up. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!

We are in need of a team of volunteers to serve on the meal crew for Man Camp, which is April 26-28th at Washington Family Ranch in Antelope, Oregon. There is no cost to serve, and you will be provided separate lodging with the rest of the volunteers. Responsibilities for the weekend will include helping with meal prep, serving meals, washing dishes, and cleaning the dining hall. One of the ways Washington Family Ranch is able to keep registration costs down is through the help of volunteer meal crews, so your help is greatly appreciated!

VOLUNTEER AT MAN CAMP

Remember to bring in your cans and bottles to help support Orphanages of Kenya! The drop-off bins are open every Sunday after church until 11:30. They are located on the north side of the administration building. Thank you for your support!

March Church Planter Highlight | Ben & Natalie Bronson

Ben Bronson is the lead Pastor of Pillar Bible Fellowship in Hood River, Oregon. After graduating high school, Ben entered a pastoral training school and married his wife Natalie a month after its completion. They moved to Bend, Oregon to start out married life together and to assist in a newly planted church in the area. Ben had known for years that church planting was in his future, but was unsure of the time or the place. Through various circumstances showing God’s providence, Hood River became the place to which God was unmistakably calling him and his family. The Bronsons are thrilled to be living in the Hood River Valley, and are thankful for the great things that God is accomplishing through this body of believers at Pillar Bible Fellowship.
