Fifty years at Samish Island! The community of those who have a story about Samish reaches far and wide. There is a bond of spirit that arises at the mere mention of the words “Samish Island.” You have a story. We have a story. A story that has a past that grounds us for the future mission.

So spread the word. Bring all the generations. Bring those who were at Samish last year and those whose last year was long ago. This is a time to renew the stories of community, faith, transformation, fellowship and calling. Let’s tell those stories and together open wide the book with blank pages for the stories yet to be.
