The Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Water’s Edge Church has been named Member of the Month for August. In making the announcement, John Gargett, President of the Chamber, said “Water’s Edge Church has been a very active member of our Chamber, volunteering to help for nearly every single event. Most people recognize them by their now famous “We Love Birch Bay” tee-shirts. Pastor Jim Carberry, along with his Wife Nadine and the congregation are the ones who have stood in the rain, wind and sun, to help with parking, cleanup and organization of our events. Their spirit of volunteerism is truly a gift to our community.“
The Value Statement for Water’s Edge Church, known as F.I.S.H. really sums up how they view their role in our community:
- We make FRIENDS because we care about the people in our lives.
- We INVITE people to join us for worship and for fellowship.
- We SERVE our community with service projects that help those in need.
- We HUDDLE in small groups to learn about God and share our lives together.
In addition to helping out with the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce, Water’s Edge Church has also been active in local events including the Birch Bay Road Race, the MS Walk and community cleanup. They are truly a part of our community, and they demonstrate that time and again.
Water’s Edge Church holds services every Sunday at 10:00-11:00, as well as a variety of other events including Vacation Bible School, and Summer Fun Nights. They hold their services at the Birch Bay Activity Center, 7511 Gemini Street, Blaine WA 98230. The Birch Bay Activity Center is run by Northwest Park and Recreation District 2 at what many still refer to as “The old Air Force Base” off of Alderson Road. You could say they bring meaning to the phrase “turning swords into plowshares”.
