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.
GIVE IT UP FOR GOOD!
In Lent we are invited to fast, pray and give. This year we invite you to GIVE IT UP FOR GOOD. Choose something that is an ‘extra’ for you, something you want to give up or can afford to give up and use that money instead to do some Good in our community. Eastside Baby Corner staff and volunteers collect community donations, purchase and distribute children's and maternity items to families in collaboration with virtually every organization helping families from Renton to Snohomish County extending to the Cascade foothills. Each week we’ll focus on a particular item for Eastside Baby Corner:
- February 22: Diapers Sizes Newborn and Sizes 5 and 6 & Pull-Ups
- March 1: Onesies for 0-9month olds
- March 8: Powdered formula and baby food jars
- March 15: Toothpaste
- March 22: Pajamas for boys and girls, sizes 4-14
- March 29: Financial donations made out to "Eastside Baby Corner" which are used to purchase absolute essentials such as food, diapers, and car seats.
Lenten Faith Formation
Gina B. and Pastor Kara will be co-leading a study on the book "The Last Week" by Marcus Borg and Dominic Crossan, which looks at each day of the Passion story. This is an excellent and engaging book which dives deeply into scripture and historical context. We look forward to lively conversation. This study will be every Sunday morning at 9 am through Palm Sunday, 3/29!
