I have been so impressed with the Edmonds Adventist Church this last year. It has been a whirlwind year! Debbie and I were delightfully greeted by this warm and caring church family. We had the opportunity to witness this church in action. We shared a milestone celebration with the 50th anniversary of our facility. Including all the revitalizations we did with coating the striping the parking lot, power washing the moss, weeding and restoration to the patios with new furniture, painting and restoring the restrooms and more.
We experienced a number of outreach events with the Taste of the Nations, July 50th Birthday Community Funfair, Operation Christmas Child, and Trunk or Treat. Not to mention all the food and items distributed through the Blessing Box Ministry.
Children's Ministries volunteers were busy with Easter Egg Hunts, Prayer Journaling, Children’s Sabbath’s, Vacation Bible School, Youth Week of Prayer and our amazing (and growing) Pathfinder and Adventurer Clubs and their outstanding leadership. Let’s also remember our great schools and staff at Cypress SDA, Kirkland SDA and Puget Sound Adventist Academy.
We didn't forget to have fun this year also, with the annual corn roast at the Hylarides farm and all-church retreat at Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory. Mix that with great Sabbath worships, music, fellowship and our intercessory prayer group. God has blessed this church with amazing talent and leadership. Edmonds can look forward to a very bright future with a young pastoral couple arriving with the New Year as we seek the power of the Holy Spirit to continue to change and fill our hearts and lives and the lives of those in our community.
