JCC News (6/14/2017)


Our brothers and sisters of the Seattle Alliance Bible Fellowship celebrated 22 years as a church on the afternoon of June 4th, following JCC’s pentecost worship that morning. Peter & Joyce Tsai, Gene and Sue Hanson, and Pastor Tim were able to attend the celebration. Pastor Sam Badon gave special recognition to JCC for our long (18-year) history of sharing our building and space for their worship and programs.The worship team and choir provided a beautiful tribute in song and praise for the event and a magnificent feast was served next door in the fellowship hall following the worship time. Let’s continue to pray for Pastor Sam and for SABF – and to seek new ways that we can, together, be the hands and feet of Christ in our community. The photo below shows the choir performing. シアトルア アライヤンス バイブル フェロシップの第22回周年記念が6月4日に行われました。JCCから5名が出席されました。引き続き、SABFとJCCとの協力と伝道のために祈りましょう!IMG_0443(1)

We’re also planning to meet at the Tsai’s home after the walk for a potluck lunch. Important times to remember:  9:00 AM – meet at Tsai’s, or 9:45 AM, – meet at Seward Park. Walk begins at 10:00 AM and our lunch will begin at approximately 11:50 AM. Any questions, please talk to Peter (206-723-9406). The photo below is from our JCC team last year!
