5k Run

Date: April 22, 2017
Time: 9:00 am
Location: Bloedel Donovan Park in Bellingham

Mark your calendars! We’d love for you to join us on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, at Bloedel Donovan Park in Bellingham, WA, for the 5th Annual Superhero 5k Run/Walk! The course will take heroes through the beautiful Whatcom Falls Park, ending back at Bloedel Donovan Park.

Because of contributions to last year’s event, we were able to award over $7,000 to families who found themselves in transition last year; transitions that may have made it difficult or prohibitive for them to give their children opportunities to do extracurricular activities, including camp or after school programs. The Campership Fund allows us to narrow the “activity gap” for children who often with the “have nots”, often leading to a lifetime of disadvantages.

A Little Chalet History

A Little Chalet History

The Firs Chalet has been a part of the ministries of the Firs for sixty years now. It continues to be a fabulous asset for us and one that continues to astound people with its beautiful setting. You just never grow tired of seeing Mt. Shuksan framed through the windows of the main floor of this building.

Recently we heard from Jon Kvernmo who shared some pictures with us of the construction of the Chalet back in 1956.  Jon’s father Ivar was contracted by the Firs to build the A-frame structure along with some staff and volunteer help. These pictures are a great reminder to us of God’s wonderful provision for us back then as well as now.
