Bridget Reeves, Lighthouse Mission Ministries - December 18, 2016

Since 1923, the Lighthouse Mission Ministries desires to minister to needy men, women and children through the provision of compassionate resources and services in the Name of Jesus Christ.  Through meals, shelter, relationships, life skill classes, encouragement and accountability we seek to walk alongside people from their first day of homelessness to their last.  

The Lighthouse Mission staff invites guests and volunteers to actively participate and contribute in all levels of our programming, from developing daily schedules to grace-full discipline to the daily running of services.  The Mission houses a little over 200 people a night and serves 300 meals daily.  

For the past seven years, Bridget Reeves has been working at the Lighthouse Mission, currently serving as the Director of Programs.  In this role, she has the opportunity to be directly involved in all of the Mission's programs and services including the recent 80 bed expansion of the 24/7 Drop-in Center to meet the needs of the local community.

Gabe Eiperson, Whatcom Land Trust - December 11, 2016

Gabe Epperson, conservation director of Whatcom Land Trust, will provide an update on the Trust to those attending his presentation at the Sunday Forum of Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship on December 11, 2016 at 9:15 a.m. He also will elicit feedback from the group to prioritize areas in the county that will focus on new acquisition, conservation and restoration projects. A new Land Conservation Plan will be the culmination of this process.

The mission of Whatcom Land Trust, a nonprofit organization started in 1984, is to preserve and protect wildlife habitat, scenic, agricultural and open-space lands in Whatcom County for future generations by securing interests in land and promoting land stewardship. We partner with local governments in Whatcom County, state agencies, tribes and other organizations to help us plan and implement critical land conservation projects.
