Community Connections is our communication center for events designed for our church members and members of our community to share together.  Events include service efforts and recreational and educational activities.


Community Connections events are open-invitation unless otherwise specified.  Bring family and friends.  Tell your neighbors.


Seahawks Playoff Party

Saturday, January 10, 5 p.m.

Come and cheer the Seahawks on with us!  The game will be projected onto the big screen.  Bring food and family/friends to share.  More parties to follow if the Seahawks win.  Email Kevin Jensen for information.

Board Game Night

Saturday, February 7, 6-9 p.m.

This time, Board Game Night is a New Year’s Eve party!  Bring any snacks, games, and friends/family you’d like to share.  In the church’s fellowship hall.


Wednesdays 6-8 p.m.

Food for the body & food for the soul.  Think pizza, singing, and Bible study designed especially for teens and their families but open to everyone.  Bible study will focus on the very basics of the Bible: key stories, main themes, how to read the Bible for yourself, and the basics of Christian teaching.  Recommended for ages 10 through adult (arrangements for younger children are under consideration; contact us for information).  Great for anyone wanting an introduction to the Bible and/or Christian teaching.

5:45 p.m. - building opens

6:00 p.m. - pizza is served!

6:30 p.m. - cleanup

6:45 p.m. - singing

7:00 p.m. - Bible study

Donation requested to offset food costs ($2/person).


American Sign Language Class

Basic sign language class for beginners.  Taught by deaf instructors and an interpreter.  Offered as interest allows.  This class is currently taking a break.  Let us know if you’re interested, and then check back here for updates on when it will resume.

Apple Day

Pick apples for yourself and your family, then pick some more for charity.  On October 19, 2013, 76 people picked over 2,500 pounds of apples for Northwest Harvest (see the photos).  Apple Day is held each October at the home of one of our church families.

Board Game Nights

Saturday night fun for family and friends—bring yours!  In the church’s fellowship hall, 6-9 p.m., on the first Saturday of each month.  Bring your favorite game(s) and snacks to share, if you like.

Plastic balls and bats, all ages play together.  Building community through pleasantly-competitive baseball.  Signups in April, games May-August.

Potholes State Park Family Campout

An annual campout for SVCC families and friends at Potholes State Park.  Rest, play, and enjoy life out of the regular routine.  One Thursday-Sunday weekend each summer.

Serving the community by supporting students and teachers at local schools.  In 2014, we collected supplies for Martin Luther King, Jr., Elementary School in Yakima.  In 2012-2013, we collected supplies for Satus Elementary School in Wapato.


Family movie nights during the winter months?  This is another idea we’re considering.  If you’re interested or have suggestions, email us here.
