Focus on Christ's Leading & Timing

by Doug Bing, Washington Conference president

Luke 5:5 encapsulates the way that Jesus would have us work for Him. The text says; “And Simon answering said unto Him, Master we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing; nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net." 

There are two ways of operating in our walk with God shown here: The first is “we have toiled all night.” Here the focus is on what we are doing. What our plans are. We have always fished like this. We have worked hard all this time and have nothing to show for it.

The second way is to follow the leading and timing of the Master. As you go through your life, please focus on the leading of Christ and not just on your labors. God’s instruction and timing will always lead to a great catch that brings glory to Him.

Amen Tacoma By the Numbers

AMEN held a free health clinic in Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 10 and 12, and we've had lots of requests for "the numbers." So here we go!

  • Provided free medical services valued at nearly $300,000
  • Treated 627 individuals (sometimes with two or three services) from the community who could not otherwise afford medical care
  • More than 400 volunteers from four states contributed their time
  • Another AMEN clinic is scheduled in Everett for April 2018

What is Mirror Conference?

Glad you asked! Mirror Conference is the Washington Conference Youth Rally for 2018!

We've decided to try a little re-branding and re-visioning for this year. You'll notice a difference in the name, location, theme and also in price. This is so we can offer even more quality for youth to walk away with. Our aim is to help Adventist high school aged youth better reflect Christ into their community. And this is all being planned by a group of our young pastors!

  • When: January 19 & 20, 2018
  • Where: Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center (Renton, WA)

How do you stay madly in love forever?

Childcare provided when you RSVP! We can't say enough good things about this marriage education program. Please attend!

Marriage is a marvelous and complex relationship. Most couples have been “mad about marriage” because they've been madly in love with each other. But most of us have also been just plain mad.

The Mad About Marriage Seminar is marriage education, not marriage counseling. Mike Tucker shares lots of stories – some from his own life – and lots of practical advice that you can really use. He also examines some of the issues that can derail marriages, drawing on current research and the expertise of a variety of scholars, authors, and psychologists to find solutions to the problems.

Mad About Marriage will be coming to Puyallup Adventist Church on November 17 at 7 pm and November 18 from 2-5:30 pm. Couples welcome! Singles welcome! Registration is required online or by calling April at (253) 848-5548.
