The Siletz Bay Music Festival has grown from an intimate chamber music series to becoming a centerpiece of cultural life on the Central Oregon Coast, bringing great chamber and orchestral music, jazz and added surprises to throngs of Lincoln City residents and visitors for more than two weeks each summer. While the Festival has changed, the constant has been the devotion of our audiences.

SBMF runs from June 19 through July 4, and brings local and international musicians together in venues in Gleneden Beach, Salishan and Lincoln City. Visit with the performers and mingle with other appreciative patrons. Hear great music¾ live, up close and personal, right here in town. You don’t have to drive to Portland or Eugene for it, and their prices are a very good deal.

Come join us for the free concert at our church!  Suggested donation is canned food  for LC Food Pantry.


Monday’s with Mike

Every Monday morning in the Gathering Place there will be time with  Pastor Mike.

Each week, from 10:00 to 11:00, we will have an open discussion of the previous day’s sermon. There will be opportunity for questions, follow-up, and open conversation about whatever was preached the day before. Then, we will turn our collective attention to the scripture text for the coming Sunday, a preview of the sermon Mike is working on. There will also be time for general discussion of your topics of interest.

Too often, we give the task of theological thinking, scriptural reflection, and sermonizing to “paid professionals” when this is really the work of ALL of us in the body of Christ. We hope to see you there!

Reasonable Gun Reform – YOU can make a difference


Since December’s tragedy in Newtown, more than 3,200 people have been killed by guns in the United States. [1] This senseless violence needs to end.

Galvanized by the horror of Newtown, people of faith have urged Congress to pass meaningful legislation to reduce gun violence. We have written letters, signed petitions, and held events.
But Congress refuses to act, even as the number of gun deaths continues to rise. To make sure Congress hears our voice, Sojourners is joining with PICO Network (People Improving Community through Organizing) to host an interfaith prayer vigil in Washington, DC, this Thursday, April 11th at 11:30 a.m.

We’ll join hands in prayer on the National Mall surrounded by more than 3,200 wooden crosses and other religious symbols to commemorate those who have died since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. All last week, Sojourners staff and volunteers have been building crosses and preparing for Thursday’s witness.

Here’s how you can get involved with our vigil to end gun violence:

  • Mark your calendar and lift up a prayer with us 11:30 EST on Thursday morning that our elected officials would put aside their differences and pass common sense solutions to reduce gun violence on our streets and in our communities.
  • Contact your member of Congress directly about how we can work together to end gun violence. Every voice matters, so please take a minute to offer yours and encourage others in your network to do the same.
  • Sponsor a cross by making a small gift to Sojourners. Your contribution means you’ll be a part of this powerful witness!

Thanks for all you’re doing to help turn swords into plowshares (Isaiah 2:4).

On God’s Side: For the Common Good

It’s time to ask what it would look like if we could practice the common good in the massive debates that are now dividing our country: economic fairness and social trust; the purpose rather than the size of government; the moral path to fiscal sustainability, ethics for globalization; coming together to holistically prevent gun violence; conflict resolution over endless wars; and countless others.
