Promise Square
:: This Week's Promise to Share

Keep your lives free from the love of money
            and be content with what you have,
  because God has said,

            “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
            What can mere mortals do to me?”
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.
            Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday
and today and forever.

Hebrews 13

"Our Motorcycle Ministry had a very busy September this year, a month that typically signals the end of the motorcycle season in the Pacific Northwest.
  • We rode with the Lynnwood Harley Owners Group
  • Had a very productive outreach booth at the Edmonds Classic Car Show where our own Pathfinders Club joined us
  • A church visit in Oak Harbor during Oyster Run weekend
  • 2 booths on Oyster Run Sunday
  • A motorcycle show in downtown Everett
And finished off with a church visit in Sequim where riders there are very interested in starting their own SKMM chapter for outreach on the peninsula."
