We checked out a handful of churches after moving to Seattle, and we attempted to get plugged into some while not succeeding and then happened to be youth leaders at another. We were searching for a young congregation that would challenge us spiritually as a couple while doing so individually too! It wasn't till a colleague of mine who we volunteered with regularly as he was the youth pastor in Woodinville who knew us personally and thought Eastlake would be a refreshing church for us.
Eastlake Community Church,
I am so glad we found you!
*I am still bummed it took us 3 years to do so
It didn't even take 30 minutes of being in the church walls that this church would be home for us. It's different than the other big churches out there, and Paster Ryan often says, "God made us a mega sized church to make a world class impact."

I blogged about the benefit event our church was hosting, Drinks for Drinks, and it was a HUGE success. This is just one example of why I am so proud to be part of this body of Christ with dear friends who have turned into life-long relationships!
If you live in the Seattle area and are looking for a church,
