|Hate to admit it but I
really don’t know too much about what goes on under the hood of my car.
Don’t get me wrong, I have a cursory knowledge and understand the
theory of combustion and electronic signaling but when it really comes
down to it, I’m just happy when it works. The same goes for
Kim’s Blueberry crisp recipe… I don’t know what’s in it that makes it
sooo good--- I’m just happy to eat a lot of it.
Every so often I see a small tuft of smoke or hear a loud crash coming
from the Community Life Center and I’m just sure something good is
going on inside there. In fact, word on the street says all kinds of
crazy improvements are happening in there. Rumor has it, we will have
heat, running water and even electricity in that building! One day---
not too far away, you will be wandering to a life-changing class with
people you love, feeling more blessed than ever and the realization
will hit you, "Hey, I don’t care what’s in the walls. I'm just
glad it works."
Thank you to every one of you who are fueling this building
with your sacrificial generosity to achieve the powerful objective of
lives transformed by Jesus!

Maybe you’ve seen a few of
then you are
officially noticing our new emphasis on Community
Here at Cascade, we are passionate about people connecting with each
other. Having those around you who know your story, can
encourage you and walk with you through life’s Ups & Downs is
vital. Our hope is that everyone at Cascade finds a group of
people that will journey with them. Are you ready to dive
in? If so, then know we have several groups in the area
(check out our cool map!).
Each group meets and chooses their
own discussion materials... sometimes it's a group study in the Word,
some groups like a video series, some groups use follow-up questions
from Sunday's message series.
It's a great chance to
be in smaller community while being a part of a big church.
We are also looking for leaders
to start new groups!
Are you ready to step out and help connect people together at
Cascade? Then lead a group, we’d love to have you!

video conference retreat that poured into the lives and hearts of
Thirty two couples, ranging from “newlyweds”
“married-too-long-to-quit-now,” attended the weekend event.
The Art of Marriage offered excellent, pertinent information in a very
contemporary (NOT boring!) presentation that every couple could take
home and apply no matter what your marriage looked like going in.
the course of the weekend, three people accepted Jesus Christ into
their hearts and lives as their Savior and several more recommitted,
praying for the Holy Spirit to work in their marriages!
It was a fabulous weekend of love, laughter, a few tears, and an impact
that should last for some time. I encourage you to keep your eyes
peeled for upcoming events offered through Cascade’s Marriage

Youth did a great job of setting up and tearing down as well
as serving the guests with humble servant hearts. This years auction
had the greatest variety ever and nothing was left when all was said
