Puget Sound Honor Flight Fundraiser

Puget Sound Honor Flight is a non-profit organization. Their mission is to transport Western Washington heroes on “One Last Mission” – a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built in their honor. This trip is free to the veteran, and made possible solely through individual donations and corporate support – no Federal funds are allocated to this program. With the hard work and dedication of Honor Flight hubs throughout the U.S., and their communities, over 117,500 veterans have made this cathartic journey.

Last year we were able to sponsor six Veterans! We hope to sponsor 36 veterans this year, which is equivalent to $36,000. We are requesting donations as well as items for the Silent Auction.

Battle for the Bible (Apologetics Symposium)

Seminar by Dr. Phil Fernandes

Thursday July 16th, 2015 @ 7 - 8:45 PM



In the 1970’s, leading evangelical thinkers fought the first “battle for the Bible” in modern times. They argued against the idea that the Bible contains historical and scientific errors, and it only speaks truth in spiritual or moral issues. This led to the 1978 International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, which produced the “Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.” The Evangelical Theological Society embraced the Chicago Statement & removed from their ranks any scholars who denied inerrancy. However, in recent years, some leading evangelical thinkers have invented new approaches to interpreting the Bible which allows these scholars to claim to hold to inerrancy (i.e., the Bible is totally without error in all that it teaches), yet deny several Gospel miracles by claiming they are just figurative speech or poetic devices and not genuine historical miracles. In this lecture, Dr. Fernandes shows that this hermeneutical approach destroys the doctrine of inerrancy.


About the Speaker:

Dr. Phil Fernandes is the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense, which he founded in 1990 to teach Christians how to defend the Christian Faith. He is also the pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship in Silverdale, Washington, and teaches philosophy, world religions, theology, and apologetic's for CrossPoint Academy and the Imago Dei Institute (formerly Cascade Bible College).


Dr.Phil Fernandes has earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University, and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. Fernandes has debated some of America’s leading atheists (i.e., Dr. Michael Martin of Boston University, Jeff Lowder, Jim Corbett, and Dan Barker). He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian world view at some of America’s leading universities.

Blind Descent with Author Brian Dickinson

The community is invited to hear Brian Dickinson, Mount Everest climber and author of Blind Descent, speak about his perilous journey at 9:00AM and 10:45AM, Sunday, July 19th at Lake Sawyer Christian Church.

 Former Navy rescue swimmer Brian Dickinson was roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest—also known as “the death zone”—when his Sherpa became ill and had to turn back, leaving Brian with a difficult decision: should he continue to push for the summit, or head back down the mountain? After carefully weighing the options, Brian decided to continue toward the summit—alone. Four hours later, Brian solo summited the highest peak in the world. But the celebration was short-lived. After taking a few pictures, Brian radioed his team to let them know he had summited safely, and got ready to begin his descent. Suddenly, his vision became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds, he was rendered almost completely blind. All alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness, Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and his faith.

 Brian will recount his extraordinary experience on Mount Everest and share insights he has gained from his blind descent. He has travelled the world to share his story and has been featured on CNN and Good Morning America. Copies of his book, Blind Descent, will be available for purchase at a discounted price and there will be a meet and greet with him after each service.

 Anderson Cooper of CNN had to say this about his journey, “That’s incredible…it’s a great story.”
