Every Church – a Missional Church
Every Christian – a Missionary
Thank you for visiting our Alaska District Web page. I encourage you to check out our 28 Nazarene churches across Alaska and plan a visit to one of our Worship services. We are seeking to minister the wonderful grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ in as many of our Alaskan Communities as possible from the Northern Interior (Two Rivers, Fairbanks, and North Pole) and Western Alaska (Nome) through out South Central Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula, through Prince William Sound to as far south as South East Alaska (Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan).
We have a busy summer ahead of us at our Alaska District Campgrounds; Camp Maranatha which is located just outside Big Lake, AK. We would love to have you or your family join in on the fun of some of our camps. Some of our Camping highlights: Memorial Day Family Camp (Thur.-Mon.), May 25-29th, AK District Kids Camp (Mon.-Fri.), May 5-9th, and our AK District Youth Camp (Mon.-Fri.), July 24-28, 2017.
Between all the activities at Camp Maranatha this summer are numerous other important ministries: NYI Resurrection Trail Backpacking Trip under the leadership of Pastor MJ Quick (Jewel Lake Naz.) June 5-10th, as well as our Church of the Nazarene General Conventions and Assembly (which happens every 4 years), June 20-30th in Indianapolis, IN.
Closing the summer out is our Alaska District Labor Day Camp, Sept. 1-4 again at beautiful Camp Maranatha.
Yes, Alaska during the summer is a busy place, but it’s the place to be!!! Enjoy your summer with Jesus and remember Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Love in Christ,
Pastor Paul & Patti Hartley
