Our New Church Home in February 2019

Dear friends,

Holy Scripture teaches us that God is the giver of every good gift (James 1:17) and at St. Charles we have been richly blessed in so many ways. All that we have and all that we hope for is given to us by God. For many years our church has prayed for a permanent home, a building to call our own, a place to serve as a launching pad for mission and ministry in Kitsap County and beyond, and now thanks to the provision of God we have found such a home.

We are purchasing a church building, located at 7625 Central Valley Road, in the heart of the Kitsap Peninsula. While the Church is composed of the people of God, and not the building itself, over the years to come I believe this facility will become a place of prayer, worship, preparation, and celebration for our congregation and the community at large. In this place, the Gospel will be preached and the love of Jesus Christ will transform lives, because God who delights to give good gifts to his people (Matthew 7:11) has given us this a new home.

Indeed, we have received an incredible blessing, and I am excited to worship and serve there with you very soon. Please, if you can, give generously and continue to pray for St. Charles as we follow God’s call and take this step forward together.

Our Prayer


Almighty and everlasting God, through the ages your Holy Spirit has led your people forward. Help us follow your guidance as we joyfully prepare to move to a new home and into a new season. Open our eyes to see how you are calling us to love and serve our neighbors and share our blessings with others. Grant us wisdom, and go before us to establish your Church, that Saint Charles may stand firm on the solid rock, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Our Next Steps


We are planning to move to our new home on Central Valley Road early in 2019, but there is still much to do to prepare. We will be cleaning, renovating, and painting to be sure everything is ready for us to move in. There will be opportunities to serve on teams that assist with landscaping, moving office equipment, preparing the sanctuary for worship, and many other exciting things to do between now and then. To volunteer, contact Jeff Brown and PJ Evans, our Transition Team leaders.
