Retreats / Projects

come and join us for a two night retreat at Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood, February of 2016. 

Mark your calendars for the next Prodigal Retreat (February 2016). Warm Beach: two nights (Friday and Saturday) at the premier retreat center in Northwest Washington, for only $25 for the whole weekend - and we don't have to do the cooking. You can come early on Friday and there is no extra cost for that – still only $25. Many hiking trails, a huge wetland, and many places for prayer and reflection.

speakers TBA soon.

Rebound of Whatcom County - Ray of Hope Camp

Dale and Dennis have been in contact with Rebound of Whatcom County and have suggested that we as a Prodigal ministry help out with their summer day-camp called Ray of Hope.  We think the best way we can serve these kids and their families is to offer a Pinewood race for them at the end of their camp in August. Since Dennis has all the equipment and we have men ready and willing to give, we thought this would be a great way for Ray of Hope camp to give the kids an opportunity they probably would not have had. We are asking all men to sponsor a car for a camper and a little extra for trophies, prizes, etc. We are aiming at 25 cars for 25 kids, each car being about $5. We would like to have some extra for the rest, so we are asking men to sponsor a car for $10.   Dennis and I, and whomever has the time and the flexible schedule, will help the kids build the cars and then have them race-ready in August. The camp dates are from June 27th - August 12th.
