Congregational Life

Cross country skiers, Camp Camrec

There are many opportunities for fellowship throughout the year, both formal and informal. There is always coffee and sometimes snacks after worship. We also enjoy periodic potlucks throughout the year.

Some key times of fellowship take place in the Cascade Mountains at Camp CAMREC, which belongs to the churches of Washington Mennonite Fellowship (WMF). On the long weekend of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, members of the congregation gather at the camp for winter retreat.

WMF gathers in the fall and spring for work days, board meetings, and fellowship together. Quilt-makers gather for a retreat in winter, and enjoyers of “Birds and Blossoms” gather for a retreat in springtime. Summer ushers in a season of summer camps for kids. At camp there is time to enjoy nature, fellowship, worship, and gather around organized activities .
