Your District Discipleship Team wants to make sure you are equipped to teach the Word of God to all ages in your missional context. You can find information and ideas online at our global ministry site A valuable option for training is found at The Discipleship Place


I want to introduce you to some of the things that are available to you and your congregation from District Sunday School & Discipleship Ministries (SDMI):


  • The Mix – Each fall we offer a teaching/training time that brings our pastors and laypeople together covering children’s ministries, women’s ministries, youth ministries and discipleship. It will be held October 17, 2020 in Othello, Washington. 

  • Northwest Fall Retreat – The laity of the district will gather for retreat at the Enzian Inn in Leavenworth, WA in the fall. Visit their website for more information.

  • Adventure Camp (boys & girls) – This summer's camp has been cancelled due to COVID-19. However, camp alternatives are available. View the events page for more information. 

Outreach funds are available for churches under 125 to help you do something special in your community. Call Pastor Jim for details (509-534-7751).
