Greetings church family,

It was hard to sleep and hard to stay dry in the tents at the Tillamook County fairgrounds for the Oregon Conference Pathfinder Camporee.  At about 2 am on Sunday morning the rain started to come down very hard.  It continued to come down at varying speeds until 9 am in the morning.  As I heard the pitter-patter intermixed with the pelting of rain, I wondered how this would affect everyone’s spirits and morale.  Would some choose to be grumpy, sad or mad?  Would they just make a choice to deal with and still be happy?  I am very happy and proud to report that the rain might have dampened the ground but it did not dampen the spirits and attitudes of the Pathfinders.  Even though we had to eat breakfast and pack up in the rain everyone was as happy to do as any other day.

This past weekend was the Oregon Conference Pathfinder Camporee.  Our Sunnyside Pathfinder Club set up the most tents that I have seen since I’ve been here.  This year our club has seen an influx of new members and it’s a good challenge to have.  It was great to have so many young faces from all around Oregon come to hear Dick Duerksen regal us with stories from the life of Paul as a first-person narrative.  It was a great experience and a little rain wasn’t going to ruin it for these Pathfinders!

Of course, living here in this part of Oregon we can’t allow rain to negatively impact us too much.  If we let rain bother us we could be in for what some describes as a long miserable existence.  Since moving here, I have been amazed at how people walk, run, ride bikes, and even mow grass in the rain.  There is no way that Portlanders let a little rain stop them from getting things done.  We just simply make a choice to just carry on and get things done.

I believe very firmly that joy is a choice and a decision that we can make.  We can choose to find joy in the situation we are in.  Making that choice should be easier because of my faith and trust in God.  We can have the confident assurance that God is on our side.  If God is for us who can be against us? (Romans 8:31).  We also often hear people say, “this too shall pass.”  We are especially aware of this when the physical rain comes in our lives.  Do we make the same connection to the figurative rain in our lives?  Eventually the sun came out on that last day of Camporee.  We were all happy to see it and bask in its light and warmth.  You can be assured that the Son will always come out despite the rain.  Because of that hope, trust, and faith may we always choose joy despite the rain!

Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. ‘Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!’”
Matthew 7:7-11 

Dear Family,

Last Sunday Terry and I spent the day on the coast in celebration of another year of life. It had been a while since we had visited – too long! And we had a fantastic time. There is something incredibly soul-soothing about waking up to the sound of waves breaking over rocks and sand. This trip was particularly special as we took a boat out to watch the whales surfacing at Depoe Bay; I had not seen whales quite that close before and it was pretty amazing to witness their grandeur so close. However, as incredible as those whales were, it was a creature far less grand, that captured our attention that day.

We had stayed over night in Lincoln City, and in the morning, woke to a tapping on the balcony’s sliding door! Getting up to check what was going on, I found an old, but rather large, sea gull standing there, tapping with his beak on the glass. I didn’t have anything with me to give him, and thought he would just go away after a few minutes. No such thing! He kept tapping! So much so, that I was compelled to go all the way up to the office where breakfast was being served, and get him some food!

There is power in the simple and seemingly humble act of asking – more than we often think.

In Him,

Pastor Kara Johnsson

September 8 Communiqué

Greetings church family,

This Sabbath we will be looking at some of what it means to be blessed and then, in turn, to be a blessing.

We use the term in so many different ways and sometimes experience blessings as uniquely as we are diverse one from another. This sometimes gives way to very careless  uses of the concept, even as we pray,

God bless this food,
Please give us traveling blessings this Labor Day Weekend,
Bless my children,
Bless my Church.

But for me, over the past number of years, the term has become significantly loaded with meaning.

I totally depend on the prayer-promise,

The Lord bless you and keep you; …
Numbers 6:24

I am challenged by what it means when God says,

… you will be a blessing.
Genesis 12:2

This weekend, as we wish one another a blessed Sabbath, as we bless the Lord and as He blesses us, I am thankful for my Church Family. You are a blessing to me.

Pastor Dave Allen

September 1 Communiqué

Or visit our website at:

Greetings church family,

September is upon us!  Some schools have already started up and the rest will this upcoming week.  Summer is not quite done but it is on its last leg.  There were a lot of good experiences that made me think this summer.  I want to share one last experience from this past week that I think might be helpful for some.

This past week the Oregon conference pastors were invited to attend the pastor’s family camp at Big Lake Youth Camp.  While there my kids and others had the opportunity to ride the “SeaWolf” (a type of banana boat).  The SeaWolf is an inflatable that people can sit on and hold onto as it is towed behind a boat.  As I rode in the boat I could see that holding on was more difficult for some than others.  Some would fall to one side and would stay down on that side.  There were some who fell off to one side but would quickly bounce up as soon as possible to take their old spot.  Sometimes someone would fall clear off and then we would have to stop the boat and circle around, so they could get back on.  One time one of my boys almost fell off the SeaWolf but continued to hold on to the handle for almost a minute until the boat stopped and he was able to get fully back on.  He had previously fallen completely off and said he didn’t like that so he, “made sure that was not going to happen again.”  As I watched these people fight to hold on or get back up I was reminded of our own spiritual walks.  There are times in our lives when our “ride” gets very bumpy and it can seem difficult to hold on.  At times we might even get almost knocked off or are barely holding on.  Sometimes after we fall off we are not sure whether we even want to get up and get back on the “ride.”

We see throughout the Bible that there were characters and personalities that had some of these struggles as well.  I was reminded of all these Bible characters including Joseph, the most recent one we have been studying.  Most of these characters continued to hold on to God.  Even when all hope seemed lost they held on for dear life.  Regardless of what things may look like we must do the same.  I want to admonish us all to continue to do the same.  I share the words that Joshua shared with the leaders of Israel.  “But you are to hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have until now.” (Joshua 23:8)

Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse

Handbells for everyone—yes, and for you, too!  Not just listening, but ringing as well.  In mid-September rehearsals for two handbell choirs will begin again – a 3-octave team for those fairly new to handbells, and a 5-octave team for more experienced ringers.  We have more than 20 ringers who have made the commitment for weekly rehearsals preparing music to enrich our worship services- – ringing Level 3 and 4 anthems.  We still need more ringers for the 3-octave choir, and 1 more experienced ringer for the 5-octave choir.  Working together as a team provides a very rewarding experience making music together to share with others.  Invite 2 or 3 of your friends to try something new along with you.  Explore the possibilities by calling Rosemayne at 503-730-5317.

Every time I think of you I thank God for you.
I have joy in my heart every time I ask God to help you.
I thank God for the joy we share in telling the good news from the very first day until now.
Philippians 1:3-5

 

Dear Family,

It is with thankfulness that I greet you this week; not for any particular big thing that has happened at church, but for your love and faithfulness. For the way you as a congregation stand by each other in good times and bad. For the way you pull together and create memories like our delicious corn feed on Sunday. I am thankful for the spirit in which you embrace our children, providing a worship experience that does not exclude them. I am thankful for a congregation that respects diverse opinions – holding to core beliefs but giving freedom for people to think and question. And I am thankful that you are a family that I can be certain will make people feel welcome when they walk through those doors.

I thank God for you,

Pastor Kara Johnsson

August 18 Communiqué

Or visit our website at:

Greetings,

It seems to have been a hot summer with more than the usual 90˚ days. I happen to be one of those who find this kind of heat somewhat debilitating and am to be found in the cool spots with conditioned air.

I am reminded of passages in the Bible where God compassionately offers shade, the air conditioning of the dry, desert day:

The Lord watches over you — the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
Psalm 121:5-6

 Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.
Isaiah 4:5-6

The Sabbath is an opportunity to rest in the assurance of His salvation – a time and place to find cooling shade from the “heat” of your day. God has sent Jesus ahead of us to secure this rest.

Happy Sabbath rest …

Pastor Dave Allen

August 11 Communiqué

Or visit our website at:

Greetings church family,

This past week my wife was able to attend the North American teacher’s convention held in Chicago, Illinois.  It was interesting to have her sending us text messages with pictures of those people that she ran into who our family knew.  There was also a barrage of pictures being put up on different social media accounts of people running into old friends.  The one thing that all these pictures had in common was that the people were so joyous at being together.

Looking at those pictures I could not help but think about what a celebration and reunion we will have in heaven.  When we will get to see and be together with those who are close to us who we have not seen in a while.  It will be nice to see those who live far away from us, but I think particularly about those loved ones who have gone to rest in Jesus.  Those who we can no longer speak to on the phone, see on social media, or even visit on vacation.  Most of us have experienced the loss of someone near and dear to our heart.  We had several church members and family of church members who fell asleep in Jesus this past week.  It makes me think of a great promise found in the book of Isaiah.  “Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead.” (Isaiah 26:19; ESV)

I want to encourage you today.  Continue to walk with Jesus, continue to allow Him to be the guide of your life, so that when He returns in the clouds of glory we will be able to hear those words from Matthew 25.  “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!” (Matthew 25:23; NLT) It will be a great and joyous day when we will not only celebrate with Jesus, but with all our loved ones who have fallen asleep in Jesus.  Oh, what of day of rejoicing that will be.  It will be a day of celebration and reunion.  I’m looking forward to that day and I know that you are too.

Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse
