Millwood Community Presbyterian Church
Millwood Community Presbyterian Church

The Rev. Craig Goodwin, pastor of Millwood Community Presbyterian Church, is proud to be locavore. In 2008 he and his family spent one year consuming only was is local, used, homegrown or homemade. He wrote about this journey in “Year of Plenty” and preaches it to his congregation.

In tomorrow's dessert portion during Faith Feast: An Intercultural Progressive Dinner we’ll be able to taste Goodwin’s message. Volunteers from the Millwood Presbyterian have been busy baking us desserts, made mostly with local and organic products, promising a healthy, tasty way to end our time together.

Millwood Community Presbyterian, a historic church in Spokane Valley, is a “missional church, committed to studying God's word, and seeking God in prayer.”

Millwood is very active in the community, sponsoring a chapter of Young Life, a Boy Scout troop, and an after-school program at Orchard Center. Also, the Millwood Farmers' Market is operated from the parking lot.

Millwood, founded in 1925, is a connectional church; it is a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Presbytery of the Inland Northwest. Millwood Presbyterian Church partnered with Spokane Valley Young Life, Hutton Settlement, the West Valley School District, and others to create a community center for young people in the West Valley of Spokane, called The Crossing.

Before heading to Millwood, we'll eat halal appetizers at the Spokane Islamic Center and a vegetarian entree at the Sikh Gudwara of Spokane.

This event is sold out.
