Last Summer, we set up a handful of events designed to give us all a chance as a church family to build new friendships, to deepen existing relationships with God and one another, and to just enjoy some extended times of fellowship together. This Summer we’re excited to do the same thing! From hikes, to a Mariners game, to Fourth of July events, and everywhere in-between, you can see everything we have planned this Summer below!
JULY 4 | INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
Celebrate Fourth of July with your Sound City Bible Church family in downtown Edmonds! From 10am–3pm Community Groups from the Edmonds area will have a tent at City Park (600 3rd Ave S, Edmonds, WA 98020) where those attending can connect during the festivities. City activities include a 5k race, children’s parade, main parade, and firefighters waterball competition. Then stay into the evening to enjoy the fireworks together (scheduled to begin at 10pm at the Civic Stadium). Jim and Shelli Lagucik will be your point of contact and hosts at the tent, so please send RSVPs and any questions to them directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
JULY 10- 14 | VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Calling all kids who have completed grades K–5th! Come join us for Vacation Bible School (VBS) hosted by our friends at Northlake Christian Church (19202 North Rd, Bothell, WA 98012) in Bothell. This week of fun and learning about Jesus will run from July 10–July 14, from 9am–12pm. You can register now at scbc.do/vbs.
JULY 15 | LAKE 22 HIKE
Last year’s summer hikes proved to be a great way to build existing friendships and start some new ones, while enjoying God’s creation together. This summer, on July 15, we’re planning a scenic hike to Lake 22, which will be led by our very own Chris Vaughn. This family-friendly hike is 5.4 miles round-trip, with beautiful scenery throughout. Those looking to carpool will be meeting up at the church offices, and departing at 7:30am; otherwise, plan to meet us there at the trailhead by 9am. Driving Directions: from Granite Falls, drive east for 13 miles on Mountain Loop Highway to the trailhead on the right side of the road.

AUGUST 11 | MARINERS GAME
Would you like free tickets to the Mariner’s game on August 11th? We’ve got some for you! Here’s the catch: to get free tickets, you must bring someone who’s not currently involved in a church. This is a great opportunity for you as a church member to practice hospitality and invitation. So reach out to those whom God has put on your heart and invite them to join you and your church family for the game. First pitch is at 7:10pm. Reserve your tickets now at scbc.do/mariners.
