“Work” consumes as much time as just about anything else we do. But for many, it’s a source of grief instead of fulfillment. Between demanding supervisors, difficult coworkers and a constant pressure to perform we can become weary and even make compromises we regret. How do we discover God’s perspective on our work and experience the joy and satisfaction that comes from a job well done?

The Greatest Stories Ever Told: The Parables of Jesus

Everybody loves a good story. Stories can capture our imagination and give us a new perspective on life. Perhaps the greatest storyteller in history was Jesus himself. He often took the most profound lessons of life and wrapped them in simple stories everyone could understand. In this series we’ll take a fresh look at these ancient stories and discover what they teach us about our own story.

“For God so loved the world…”  The most famous verse in the Bible begins with God’s heart for the world. So what in the world is God doing? Our world is getting smaller, but the need and opportunity is getting bigger. In this four-week series It’s a Small World, we’re going to explore God’s invitation to join Him in a global mission.

Afterlife: What happens when you die?

The mortality rate in this world is 100%. At some point, all of us, no matter how healthy we are in body, mind, and spirit will pass from this life to the next. So what happens in the afterlife? What happens when you die? Is there really a heaven and hell? These are some of the important questions we’ll explore in our new Afterlife series because eternity hangs in the balance.

For incoming 6th-8th grades, this will be an amazing summer experience camping at Alder Lake at the foot of Mt. Rainer. Imagine 120 middle school students running around playing crazy games, tubing on a lake miles long, and eating better than they eat all year (seriously!), with powerful camp speakers, music, and tent-leaders.  Many parents are key support personnel (cooks, boat drivers, etc.) with older high school and college students volunteering, too!

  • Cost:  $199 each, plus options for purchasing a zipper-hoodie.
  • Some need-based scholarships are available.  If needed, please email tracys@northshore.church and fill her in on what is needed.
  • We typically have 1-2 nurses who assist with medical situations, plus a cook-volunteer to navigate special needs.
  • Water safety?  We usually have a couple volunteer lifeguards who watch the swimming area.  Everywhere else, students are required to wear a lifejacket.
  • Students sleep with their peers in large tents, supervised by 1-2 leaders.

Further questions can be sent to: andyw@northshore.church.

For incoming 9th-12th graders, we will live out on the lake for five days/four nights on Lake Billy Chinook in Oregon for a fun and life-changing experience.  Spots are limited and last year we sold out, so invite friends and sign up ASAP.  Also, we are looking for adults to come as boat drivers and a limited amount of other support roles.

  • Usually about 14-16 people per boat (2+ of those leaders), and 1-2 camp nurses
  • 4-6 boats including free wakeboarding/wake surfing lessons, 7 canoes, lifeguard watching a swim area with lots of water toys, hiking, board games…
  • Worship, relevant camp speaker, small groups discussing life and the teachings, crazy mixers, and lots of new and old friendships
  • A couple adults come as food-leads, but most of the final meal preparations are done by each boat with competitions for some of the creative meals and style.
