WE'RE SAVING A SEAT FOR YOU

We Have Moved!
In 2016, Jesus blessed us with our church building at 2312 4th Avenue in Belltown. We enjoyed that location for two years. In September, the building was sold, and we had to vacate our lease. 

We are now temporarily meeting in the Warwick Hotel in Belltown on Sundays for worship. We would love for you to join us!
WHAT IS THE WORSHIP SERVICE LIKE?
Each service begins with praise and worship music. We clap our hands, raise our hands, pray aloud, and sing at the top of our lungs. You don’t have to, but you can try it if you like.

Following worship, you will experience passionate preaching on relevant Biblical topics. Each sermon is rooted in Scripture, and related in a way you can understand and apply to your life.

Before we say goodbye, we’ll have another short time of music.
This allows those who feel like spending time in prayer following the sermon, to respond to God in their own way.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
You can feel comfortable coming to church in whatever you feel is appropriate. The ministry team men normally wear suits, sport coats, and shirts and ties, and the ministry women wear business-casual dresses or skirts.

But casual clothes are welcome too! 

The most important thing is that you’re there, not what you wear.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
You can park in the Warwick parking lot for $8. This is good for the entire day, which is a great deal for downtown Seattle parking.

However, if you're lucky, you can find a close spot on the street. 

Street parking is free on Sunday!
IS CHILDCARE PROVIDED?
We’re new, and at this time, there is no structured childcare programs. As we grow, this is one of our focus areas to provide for in the near future.

Don’t sweat it though! You can feel comfortable bringing your children with you – they won’t bother us at all. In fact, we’ll love having them around!
DO I HAVE TO DONATE MONEY?
Giving tithes and offerings is a Biblical part of worship, and the Bible says the Lord loves a cheerful giver.

We only pass an offering plate during the service on special occasions. For those wishing to worship the Lord in giving, there is an offering plate provided for donations following service.
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE?
No, you don’t have to. You’re going to want to, but we don’t believe in high-pressure participation. We just relax and have a good time in the presence of God.

Occasionally, in special circumstances, someone may ask if you would like to pray with them. You can feel comfortable declining any invitation if it does happen. However, most people enjoy the community of praying with others.
HOW LONG DOES CHURCH LAST?
Our Sunday Worship service typically lasts between one-to-two hours. You’re welcome to come alone or bring your family; children are also welcome at all our services.
WILL I FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE?
We hope you feel welcomed and loved. And, we will do our best to never make you feel uncomfortable. However, when the Spirit of the Lord shows up, his divine light shining on the sinful nature of our hearts always makes us feel uncomfortable. It’s called conviction, and it helps guide us into living righteously.

So, we hope God always shows up and makes all of us feel a little uncomfortable in His presence.

If you’re visiting alone, you can always ask the usher and they will find you a friend to sit with. It’s always a little awkward to be new, regardless of the situation, but in time you’ll get to know everyone and feel more at home.
You Belong Here!
We still believe in the miraculous, healing power of Jesus that still changes lives today. If that's the kind of community you are looking for, I hope you'll visit us soon!
