March 3 – Bible Study with Pastor Tom Kidd
Pastor Tom’s study will be on John’s Gospel and the Epistle to the Hebrews. Join us for a lively discussion.

March 10 There’s No Wrong Way to Pray 
Deacon Amy will bring us a variety of prayer resources, tools, and techniques.  We’ll talk about Spiritual connection through prayer, and how to deepen our own prayer lives.

March 17 – Paddle Pilgrim: A Mekong River Adventure With Rev. Dave Ellingson

It began as a kayak adventure through exotic waterscapes. But record heat and drought conditions forced the adventurers to slow down and experience something else: the spectacular landscapes, friendly people, delicious food, rich history, ancient spirituality, and modern environmental challenges of Southeast Asia. Dangerous conditions became the opportunity to “linger with the lotus.” Join us on the adventure of a lifetime!

March 24 & 31 – No Sunday Forum


April 7 – Whidbey Camano Land Trust with Ryan Elting, Director, Whidbey Camano Land Trust and Jessica Larson, WCLT Stewardship Director

How can each of us make a difference in our desire to be good stewards of God’s creation: What can we do to protect and share the beautiful natural places we humans enjoy in the years ahead? What can we do today to assure that wildlife that enrich our lives here, year-round and in seasonal migrations, will continue to find the habitats here they need to thrive in perpetuity? How can we make our islands’ beautiful, inspiring natural places protected and accessible for all to enjoy? 

These are the questions the Whidbey Camano Land Trust focuses on every day. The Land Trust is a 501c3 private non-profit nature conservation corporation that is supported by people who care about keeping the islands as treasured places, for now and for generations to come. Whether you are considering ways to volunteer and support conservation and stewardship; ways to plan for future stewardship of a special property; ways to also share this bounty with managed public access, the Land Trust is a resource for long-term planning.”


April 14 Simply Living: Big Living in Small Spaces 

The Reverend Charles LaFond, the award-winning author, and speaker, is inspired by the spiritual growth, logistical griefs, and practical benefits of living simply.  Drawing on his past range of experiences as a child in a British Castle, a missionary in a tiny room, an Episcopalian Monk in a monk’s cell, and now, a small Whidbey home, Charles will consider the spiritual, emotional, and relational aspects of living “simply so that others may simply live.” Please join us for a time of reflection on the benefits of living simply with Charles, whose humor and honesty will make for a powerful and fun hour.


April 21 – N.T. Wright – Philemon

Join us for a short course from NT Wright exploring Paul’s letter to Philemon and how this tiny letter has a big message about reconciliation in the face of cultural expectations.


April 28 – Alex Eby – YoungLife Camping

Alex will return to share what Young Life is up to, preparing for camp and a space for students to experience ‘the best week of their lives.’
