This Week's Promise to Share

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:6-11, NIV

AMEN Port Orchard Serves Community!

Our Adventist and community volunteers came out to support peninsula residents during the AMEN Port Orchard clinic this past weekend! AMEN clinics help to provide free dental, vision, and medical healthcare for those with limited or no insurance.

"I've felt that the majority of the people were overwhelmed by the kindness and acceptance that we show them," says Emily Ellis, a volunteer chaplain from Auburn, Wash. "They're finding a God that cares deeply for them and that opens a door for the Holy Spirit to work."

Aside from general healthcare, the clinic provided physical therapy, massages, haircuts, lifestyle & spiritual coaching, and local resources to the community! Overall, the clinic served 97 dental patients, 94 vision patients, and 66 medical patients; A total of 257 patients served!

Thank you volunteers for your service!
