This weekend I plan to bring the message: “The High Priestly Prayer Of Christ (Part I)” from John 17:1-19. Please read through the attached Digging Deeper Bible study notes before Sunday to get the most out of the message. Services are at 8:30 and 11:00am.
Announcement From The Board of Elders
The Board of Elders is proud to announce that Stefanie Ahlers has been given the new title: “Director of Worship Music and Women’s Ministries.” Here is a little bio on Stef: Stefanie Ahlers was born in North Bend, to the Bigelow family back in ‘66. She, her parents, and 4 siblings (one is a twin) moved to Connecticut in 1979. There she graduated from New Milford High School, class of 1985. Upon graduation she went to Cincinnati Bible College & Seminary where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music. In 1992-93 Stef did her music ministry internship at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville Kentucky, one of the largest churches in the country. While in Louisville, she was able to be in a worship band, a Christian rock band, travel to England, Jamaica, Cuba, and Ethiopia on mission trips and perform at various churches and conventions throughout the country. In 1996, Stef took a music directorship at a church in Sweet Valley, Pennsylvania. There she helped develop the worship services and music ministry at a church of just under 300 congregants. In 1999, Stef moved back to Coos Bay, where she lived with and assisted her grandmother for 2 years. Kingsview Christian School hired her as a teacher where she taught for five years. She met her husband and got married in 2001, and they adopted their daughter, Katie, in 2005. Throughout the years Stef has been a homemaker, homeschool mom, recorded a CD, tutored children, been a home health care worker, and is now serving as the Director of Worship Music at Shoreline. She loves traveling, music, camping, reading, the outdoors, hanging out with her family and friends, and most of all JESUS! Stefanie came on staff at Shoreline in 2021. Since that time, Stef has done an outstanding job leading our worship music, the elders are now proud to add to her duties Director of Women’s Ministries.
Summer Worship Schedule
We are tentatively looking at moving our worship service outdoors for the summer on the 2nd Sunday of July. The weather continues to be unstable this year and I would like to do something special for the 4th of July; I will need to use the screens indoors to do this. Once we are outside, weather permitting, the plan is to remain outside with only one service at 10:30am through September.

Special thanks to Jon Asper who has worked several days this week cleaning up the gardening in front of the church office and getting us ready for our outdoor worship in the coming months.
Our niece and great-niece would like to thank everyone who stepped up to help them find Enfamil Gentlease Infant Formula 0-12 months baby formula for Taylor’s 5 ½ week old twins. It is a scary time for young mothers, especially when you have twins and cannot produce enough milk to feed them.
SCC Prayer Requests
Felix ~ Ron Williams has asked us to put a workmate of his on our prayer chain. Felix will be having brain surgery this week for an aneurysm following a stroke. He is not yet a believer.
Thank you for being a loving and sharing church. May God bless you with an awesome week as you walk closely with Him!
In Christian Love,
Michael J. Barnard
Teaching God’s Word, loving the people!
