As you may have guessed, our big event this past month at Tamarindo Church was was our Easter Sunday Celebration. It was a packed house on Easter, and it was great to be able to celebrate Christ’s
We are excited to say that the design for the church building is coming together well. Considering it has only been a little more than four years since we launched, it is amazing to see how far God has brought us. We have purchased a property, and now we are designing a building. We are grateful to God, and grateful to all of you who have helped us come this far. We have almost completed the renderings. Once we are done we will pass the renderings on to the engineer who will make blue prints. And once the builder has the blueprints… will be able to come to us with cost. In the mean time we have made some of the preliminary renderings available on our website so you can get a sneak preview. Please pray wisdom for us as we fine tune the design this week and as we plan financially for the construction.. We will keep you posted as things continue to progress.

As I wind down the letter… I’d also like share a few “behind the scenes” highlights. Thank you to Joel and Wolfie for stepping up and joining the worship band. So grateful to have more musicians giving our band and our music more depth. And congratulations to Tommy as he was baptized this past month while we were surfing down in Avellanas a couple of weeks ago. Normally we do this with the church on a Sunday, but Tommy was excited to be baptized that day, and I wasn’t going to say no. Congrats Tommy! In addition, a church that we have been part of seeing “re-launched” down in Panama City is receiving their new pastor this month. We are excited to see how God will use Nate and Jendi Korpis as they bring new life and vision at LifeBridge International Church in Panama. You can read more about our involvement with that effort below.
Thank you all again for your continued prayers and for the many ways you support the ministry of Tamarindo Church. We hope to see you on Sunday!

It is quiet, peaceful and restful, and they offer additional adventures in the rainforest such as waterfall hikes and horseback riding. We will be doing the IF:GATHERING 2017, lead by great bible teachers. Join us as we draw near to the Lord and soak up all He has prepared for us.Date: May 26-28

Youth nights at Tamarindo Church create an environment where teenagers feel welcomed and safe to be themselves.
This month at Tamarindo Church Youth Group has been full of good times, belly laughs, and great conversations. We listen to music way too loud, eat (probably too much) candy, and play some wild games and mixers.
YES… the rumor is true!!! There is a Dodgeball Tournament coming up in June… so be sure to tell your friends and let’s get some dodgeball on!! Read below and learn how to sign up your team. All youth ages 12-18 are welcome to participate.
Aside from the dodgeball and crazy games on Fridays… we play each week, we’ve really been digging into the Bible to figure out who Jesus is and what He is all about.

Tamarindo Church Prayer Requests
that God would guide us in our vision and strategy for reaching and serving our community.MINISTRY TEAM
Thanks to God for our staff and volounteers who serve in many roles in the church. Please pray that God would continue build a sense of unity and family among our core church members.
Please pray to our Father that he would meet our needs in the coming year through pledges and regular supporters!
That God would create a spiritual hunger in our community, and that we would see many come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Please pray that our church members would be salt and light in the community to those who are not saved.
Thanks be to God, the sale went through and Tamarindo Church now owns a property for the construction of a church building which will help us to more effectively minister to our church and community. At this point we are in the concept and design phase. Please pray that God would guide us in this process, and that our needs would be met for building the first phase of the church which includes the sanctuary, classroooms, youth room, and fellowship room..
