Welcome to Lake
Washington Christian Church
We are a welcoming people.
As followers of Jesus we strive to be inclusive of all people. We differ in many ways and recognize the worth of all people. We believe each person is created in God’s image and has gifts to share. We strive to create an environment where all people are welcomed unconditionally and encouraged to participate in the life of the church.
We are a compassionate people.
As followers of Jesus we hold a deep commitment to compassion and justice. We actively participate in ministries of compassion for each other, for the sick, for the poor and for the marginalized. We take seriously our role in the care for creation and commit ourselves to tending to the land and creatures in our particular place. We care for each other humbly with acts of kindness and prayer. We encourage one another along the path, with diverse opportunities for spiritual growth.
We are a hopeful people.
As followers of Jesus we have experienced the inexhaustible love of God. We endeavor to share that love and hope with all people and be a force for healing and reconciliation.
We discover God’s transforming love as we worship and work as a covenant community. With joy we invite you to join us as we live into the hopes and dreams God has for us and do our best to creatively and faithfully participate in the work God is already doing in the world.
Sunday Morning Study for Lent
This study is How Can I Forgive? by Rev. Dr. Joretta Marshall. It explores many questions: What does the Bible say about forgiveness? How can I forgive someone who has betrayed me? How can I forgive myself? How can I seek forgiveness when the person I wronged won’t speak to me? The study will develop a way of talking about forgiveness that makes sense in the contemporary world and explore practical advice and the ways forgiveness has been misunderstood and misused. You can purchase the book on Amazon for as little as $3.75 and must have the book to do the study. If you need assistance ordering a copy, contact the office. The study begins, March 9 at 9 am in the fellowship Hall.
