Church on the Water

Last year scores of people came to Church on the Water where fresh air, great fellowship, inspiring music, and meaningful teaching encouraged people from a variety of spiritual backgrounds. Starting July 5th thru Sept. 6th, 2020 chaplain and best-selling author Dr. Jim Grassi will deliver inspirational messages at the The Willows Marina. Country-western singer and local performer Mr. Tommy Petrie will handle the worship music along with some gospel music teams from local churches.
Dr. Grassi is an internationally-recognized speaker and Hall of Fame Outdoorsman with a timely message about culture, family, and faith. This year Grassi will be doing a series on selected Psalms. Tommy has been performing at local rodeos and various dining establishments for years. The beautiful atmosphere of The Willows Marina is a wonderful setting for this service. Social distancing will be practiced with seating arrangements. Families with children are welcome.
“This service is designed for anyone from shorebirds who are camping along the banks to those who are boaters, fisherman, or jet skiers” states said Billy Chapman Jr, operator of The Willows Marina and President of Anglers Inn International. “We just want people to enjoy a nice service where they can utilize our marina, covered patio, or new lawn area to hear some great music and messages in a beautiful environment."
Services are scheduled for Sundays from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. No services will be held if it rains. For those wishing to have more time with Chaplain Jim or Tommy they can stay and have lunch at Fat Bass Bar & Grill on Pend Oreille River in the marina located directly across from Riley Creek Recreation Area at 520 Willow Bay Road, Priest River, ID 83856. Free cookies, coffee, and hot chocolate will be provided.
