Community Events

Our church community have been part of Camas from the very beginning. We are rooted here, from the first pioneering efforts to today’s cutting edge industries to the families and top notch education Camas has always celebrated. We could not be more blessed than to be a part of such a vital community. Our members have been educators and community leaders from the get-go, and our investment in Camas-Washougal as a place of so many blessings is continuing and renewing.

As part of the core family that is Camas-Washougal, we are fully connected with the wider community through our members and outreach events. We share a Blueberry Breakfast during Camas Days (our pastor was Grand Marshall of the Camas Days Parade in 2007!), offer a Musical Summer Drama Camp, put together a monthly Messy Church celebration and dinner, and sponsor Movies in the Park during the month of August and enthusiastically support the Camas-Washougal Community Orchestra. Our Camas Community is part of who we are, and we love it here.

While it is great to get to participate in the community life of Camas-Washougal with our above events and more, there is so much more here to explore! As it is impossible to showcase all the things about Camas-Washougal that are worth celebrating, below are some links that are pretty good at speaking to the best of who and what we are as a community all together.
