News For You!

Hello everyone,

After a 22-hour trip home from the NACON conference in Orlando, FL, I am finally back in the saddle once again.  The training I went through with the Coast Guard was ASIST Suicide Prevention Training that I can also use at Shoreline in ministry.  Special thanks to Joe Walker for filling in for me at the pulpit while I was gone. 

This weekend, I plan to bring the message, “Are You Facing A Major Obstacle In Your Life?” from Joshua 3:1-4:9.  Please read through the attached “Digging Deeper” Bible study notes before Sunday to get the most out of the message.  We hope you have been enjoying the meals after church each week.


Men’s Roundup is quickly coming upon us and is scheduled for September 9th-12th at Camp Tadmor near Sweet Home, Oregon.  Men’s Roundup is the largest Christian Men’s Conference in the Pacific Northwest and in the past has drawn between 1,200-1,500 men to the event.  If you are interested in attending this year’s conference, please give me a call at 541-297-1571 for details.

MISSION 119:11

Mission 119:11 is our Children’s Ministries midweek ministry.  After a break during Covid, we are excited to get this ministry back up and running again this September.  God has provided us with a great team of leaders this year and now we just need the children to sign up.  If you would like to have your children involved in this ministry, or even help with it, please contact Jessie Barnard at 541-808-0902.


Stephanie Wynn from Shoreline is shut in much of the time these days, but has found a productive way of using her time and energy.  Stephanie is very involved with what is called “The Pocket Blanket Project” making blankets for our local homeless population.  Stefanie is in need of material to continue this ministry.  She says she has been getting “Mainstays” Fleece Throw’s at Wal-Mart, they are 50 x 60 inches.  The plain are $3.00 and the print $3.78 each.  She said she adds three pockets, one that she places a Bible in, one with a toothbrush, and the other with socks. Stephanie says, “We’ve delivered over 100 Pocket Blankets since 5/12/22.”  If you are willing to help Stephanie with materials for the cost of this special project, please call her at 541-756-2187, or at 541-260-9077.


Our MOPS ministry (Mother’s-Of-Preschoolers) will be starting once again in September.  If you are interested in attending or helping with this very special ministry, please call Kristal Hangana at 775-379-8892.


You might notice that we have enlarged the children’s playground and have also torn up the old sidewalk placing a new one on the southwest side of the church.  We hope that this new sidewalk will be safer for you and we have also created a way to drain our new baptistry.  Sometime in the not-too-distant future, we will be replacing the old single pane windows in the Passover Room with double paned, which should make the Passover Room much warmer this winter.


Thank you for your faithful support of Shoreline Community Church, your kindness and generosity have allowed us to keep pressing forward ministry, even during difficult times.

I hope to see you this Sunday at 10:30am outdoors on the lawn.  Remember, prayer time is at 8:30am in Room 101; three adult Sunday School electives are available at 9:30am; and church starts at 10:30am.  Please be praying about whom you can invite to church with you this Sunday.

In Christian Love,

Michael J. Barnard
