Bible Quiz Tournament Results: We had a great season for Bible Quizzing! Thanks to all of our volunteers and quizzers!

Pastors Conference: April 15-18, 2013. We invite you to a time of rest, renewal and play. Enjoy the company of other sisters and brothers who serve and struggle to honor Jesus and his people. This is a time to renew the joy of seeking and following Christ, to reconnect and make new friends, and to walk the beach and enjoy God’s creation. The food is pretty wonderful as well! More information and registration can be found at nwfriends.org/pastorsconference.
Peru Trip Team: A team of young adults and young family types are preparing to spend some time in Peru, May 4-24. The purpose of the trip is to form stronger relationships between Friends in North America and Friends in Peru, especially among the younger generations. Those going on the trip are Joy Lujan (Caldwell Friends), Russell and Sarah Badgley (Greenleaf Friends), Lauren Wells (Barclay College), Dannica Thornton (West Chehalem Friends and GFU student), Mareesa Fawver (Newberg Friends and GFU student), Rebekah Cammack (Tigard Friends and GFU student), and Dan Cammack (Tigard Friends and Director of Evangelical Friends Mission). Rebekah is Dan’s daughter, and their family served as missionaries in Peru under NWYM for 15 years. Dan and Rebekah are leading the trip. This is a short-term service trip sponsored by the Board of Global Outreach and its Bolivia/Peru Subcommittee.
