About Almira/Coulee Dam Community Church

We are a rural, non-denominational church that is led in a team environment. We currently have two campuses. Our Almira, WA campus is located in a town of about 250 people. This campus reaches several surrounding (farming) towns and is very active in both children's and youth programs. We launched the Coulee Dam campus a little over 5 years ago when given an opportunity to start worship services in a church building that was not being used. Since that time, it has been exciting to see what God has done in our midst and we have since started Kid's Church on Sundays, as well as have a youth group, bible studies and small groups currently meeting. We are excited for the opportunity to be able to hire an additional pastor to help meets the growing needs of our church.
