Speaker to discuss parents, athletics

Parents, coaches and sports fans in the Snoqualmie Valley School District can take part in an interactive presentation on the role of parents in athletics, planned for 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 8, at the Snoqualmie Middle School gym, 9200 Railroad Ave., Snoqualmie.

Speaker Bruce Brown will talk about how adults can help their athletic performance, create good memories and demonstrate respect from the perspective of young people. 

Brown is founder of “Proactive Coaching,” which focuses on team-building, retreats and workshops for parents and their role in athletics.

Church to celebrate 100th anniversary

The Snoqualmie Church of the Nazarene will join with 18,000 other Nazarene churches worldwide on Sunday, Oct. 5, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Church of the Nazarene.

Preparations for the day began in 2004 with the writing and translation of materials sent to every Nazarene church across the globe. The plan is that all 1.6 million members of the church will hear the same sermon, celebrate with the same music, and participate in the same readings in 24 time zones on the same day.

“Our congregation is excited to celebrate this anniversary with all of our Nazarene family across the world,” said Rick Skeen, pastor of the Snoqualmie Church of the Nazarene. “At the same time, we want to emphasize that the family never stops growing, and there is plenty of room for all. In our society today, it seems that relationships often don’t last very long. We invite our community to join us on Oct. 5th to see relationships that have remained strong for 100 years.”

Each Sunday this month will include celebration events leading up to the anniversary celebration on Oct. 5.

The Snoqualmie Church of the Nazarene is located at 39051 S.E. Park St. in Snoqualmie.

The Church of the Nazarene has its roots in Methodism, drawn from the teachings of evangelist John Wesley. The denomination was established in October 1908 in Pilot Point, Texas, the culmination of mergers of several like-minded groups. The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is “to make Christlike disciples in the nations.”
