Just as the flowers of spring open up to the warmth of the sunshine, our hearts open up to the warmth of God’s love.

  • Easter Egg Stuffing, Family Fun Event
    A big thank you to Mila Wight , Michele Arellano, Dave Layus, Jane Shaffer-MacDonald, Dennis Brown, Julie Pierce, Sandy Petricka, Kecia Denk and Rick Simek for their help putting on this event. This was a fun day for the families as they stuffed Easter Eggs for the migrant worker’s children, Convalescent Home, Women’s Shelter and Gateway Center. The children enjoyed games and Easter activities. Mrs. Nancy Costello came to share about what she does in her ministry. We pray that this Shoreline event will impact our community with God’s Word and Love. See our photos on Flickr.
  • Bags of Hope Kick Off April 10th
    Thank you to Jim Clark and the Awana students for helping sell the “Bags of Hope” this past Sunday. We also want to acknowledge the Jr. High and their leaders for putting them together.
