Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Candlelight Service, Guemes Island Church, 5 - 6 pm
One of the sacred traditions on Guemes Island is the Christmas Eve candlelight service which is structured for little ones to enjoy also. Families gather to hear the Christmas story and sing carols. Weather permitting, we will sing our closing carol, moving outside with lighted candles to circle around glowing luminaries. This service is a great way to start your family Christmas celebration.
Telephone Directory Updates
It's that time again! The 2017-2018 Guemes Island Telephone Directory, published by the Guemes Island Property Owners Association (GIPOA) and now managed by the Guemes Island Community Center Association (GICCA), has reached its bi-annual update cycle.
We need your help before the end of the year! Directory listings are now online. Islanders easily can add and update their listings (both residential and business). In addition, by popular demand, a printed directory will be available after the first of the year. Your online updates before the end of 2018 will ensure that the directory continues to be a valuable resource to the community. We can't do it without you!

Your donations help sustain our building and grounds and ensure that we can continue to offer programs, events, and services that enrich and connect our island community. We hope you'll read this letter, take pride in our community, and be motivated to give generously. We simply can't do it without you!
Your donation can be made using the stamped, self-addressed donor envelope you received in the mail. However, if you prefer the ease of donating online you can click here and use your PayPal account or a credit card on our secure website.
