Arctic Mission Adventure
Located at the mouth of the Selawik River where it empties into Selawik Lake, the tiny community lies about 70 miles southeast of Kotzebue; it's population is around 770.
The first Adventist contact was made in 1949 when the Nome pastor discovered an interest in the Sabbath by a native living in Selawik at the time. In 1986, there were 36 Selawik natives who came by snowmobile or walked across their village on ice and packed snow to help dedicate their modest, but attractive place of worship.
Today we have about 10-12 people who worship in the church there.
