We are excited to announce that Rev. Eugene Cho will be joining us on Sunday, June 16th as our featured guest speaker as we continue to explore what it means and looks like to be church for the common good.

Rev. Eugene Cho’s many passions involve leadership, justice, the whole Gospel, and the pursuit of God’s Kingdom here on this earth. He travels throughout the world to encourage churches, non-profits, pastors, leaders, missionaries, and justice workers – whether this happens in churches, arenas, conferences, universities, or as a guest in underground churches, villages, or refugee camps.

Name Change ───── Launch Party at The WKND!

Did you hear? We're changing the name of our church!

And we thought there'd be no better way to launch the new name then to do it when we're all together as one big church family...at The WKND 2019! That means the whole weekend is going to be one big party, and we want you to be there to celebrate with us.

If you didn’t sign up for the retreat, it’s all good! You’re still invited to come worship with us as we close out our weekend together on Sunday, May 5th at 9am at Black Lake Bible Camp (6521 Fairview Rd SW, Olympia). We’ll get our praise on, you’ll hear a good word from our guest speaker, Pastor Mike Thomas, and we’ll also be celebrating as a community as we officially launch our name change to the public!

The WKND 2019

We know life can get busy. And yes, sometimes maybe even stressful. Whether it's work, school, friends, or family — many of us find ourselves being stretched and pulled in so many different directions that if we're honest, it can feel a little overwhelming at times.

That's why it's good for the soul to stop and pause from time to time. To rest. To retreat. To recharge.

On Friday, May 3rd through Sunday, May 5th, we're escaping to the great outdoors and getting away together for a weekend to connect with God and with one another. Situated along the beautiful Black Lake in Olympia, WA, our camp grounds will feature activities and overnight accommodations for everyone, including private cabins for couples and families.

We believe God is up to something special and couldn't imagine this weekend without you.

The question is: Are you in?

Current Sermon Series: The Blessed Life

The Blessed Life Insta V2.jpg

Who doesn’t want to live a blessed life? At the core of every human heart, there is a deep longing and desire to experience blessing. Yet, what does it even really mean to be blessed? Our culture and society seem to have a lot of varying opinions and ideas about this concept of “the blessed life.” Just look up the hashtag #blessed and you’ll see.

But what does the blessed life look like when it comes to God’s kingdom? Starting Sunday, February 3rd, we’ll embark on a 9-week journey through The Beatitudes found in the Gospel of Matthew as we discover together the secret to living a truly blessed life.

Join us Sunday’s at 10am in Downtown Bellevue or 6pm in the U-District!

Workshop & Discussion: Faith, Church & Politics

FCP.jpg

As the midterms have just completed and whether you voted or not, politics affects us all. The role of faith in politics brings up a variety of views that contradict one another. These views are often related to questions about the faithful life such as: should Christians run for office? should Christians be loyal to one political party? is it a Christians duty to vote and be involved with politics? why should Christians even care about politics?

Answers to these questions all center around a thoughtful understanding of following after Jesus according to the whole gospel as revealed in scriptures. This workshop will include much opportunity for discussion and teaching. RSVP below.

// What: Faith, Church & Politics

// When: Sunday, December 2nd

// Time: 12:30pm - 2:00pm

// Where: Soma Towers Lounge (3rd floor)

// Format: Brown Bag (bring your own lunch) workshop & discussion

The Bellevue community is invited to participate in The Power of We, along with 150 other cities and 25,000 Christians across the country. Together, we will hear national and local speakers, unify attendees, inspire the generations, and challenge our culture to engage well.

We are all a part of the solution. Our city needs your voice. Join the local conversation on October 25, 2018 from 7-9 PM.
