Growing Together with Unexpected Results

From Doug Bing :: My family told me I needed a hobby, so I started inventorying my interests and chose to grow some plants. I thought I was growing herbs, even catnip, but then there sprouted this one plant that I still don't know what it is. Maybe you know?

Sometimes when we start a new ministry venture, we may be surprised by the results. This is part of the joy of growing together.

Weekly Radio Program to Launch

Renton Adventist Church is venturing into new ministry territory in 2020! The church is launching its first radio program called "Hope for Today" on Sundays at 8 am on 820 AM The Word (Seattle's Christian talk radio) beginning Sunday, February 9, with author and pastor Randy Maxwell.

"This weekly program will offer real hope in a real God for real people facing challenges of real life," say Pastor Maxwell. "Please share with your friends, neighbors, co-workers and any individual who is in need of hope. As always: 'The need is great. The key is prayer. The time is now.'"
