"A small church doing a disproportionate amount of good"
Lake City Presbyterian Church is a small church doing a disproportionate amount of good. This is because we take seriously Christ’s call to love our neighbors.
The energy for our service comes from our deep sense of gratitude to God, expressed each Sunday at 10am in worship. We are more a "resonate with deep notes on the organ" church than a "loud drums" sort of church, but there is a warm informality to our gatherings. You’ll see some ties and dresses, more jeans, and even some kids in their pj’s.
The genius of the small church is that everyone’s gifts can be given without requiring a lot of polishing first. Your presence would be a welcome gift at Lake City Presbyterian. I look forward to meeting you!
Rev. Sandy Hackett
You have lots of options, from well-established mainline denominations to brand new big-box churches. Our hope is that you find one that speaks to who you are and yet also calls you to become more: more connected to God, more in tune with yourself and your loved ones, and more engaged with this community. Lake City Presbyterian Church has been inviting people on this journey for over 99 years.
Presbyterians believe that God is way more eager to connect with us than we can ever imagine! All of salvation history tells the story of God reaching towards humanity, to know us and love us and transform our lives. We respond with worship, learning about who God is and what God cares about, and then saying thank you. Worship happens here at 10am on Sunday mornings and then extends throughout the week as we recognize God seeking us at home, at work, at school and while we do the work of everyday life.
Families matter here, even families of one. We don’t have a lot of programs, but deeply value each person who is here. Some simply worship quietly each week, which you are completely welcome to do. Others find that they have slowly built rich friendships, as the widowed find one another for companionship, or parents find trustworthy playdates for their kids, or youth connect with kids throughout the Seattle area for fun and fellowship. Do you need people more than you need another program? This is the right place for you.
Founded to reach out to those loggers who lived way out on the northern edge of Lake Washington, this church has always been about serving our community. Long gone are the pioneers who tamed the trees and built vacation homes on the beach. Now, we serve the new pioneers, like immigrants whose kids need extra support to succeed in school, or senior citizens who downsize into the SHAG housing in Lake City. Practical, personal service parallels giving opportunities to extend mercy to those devastated by disaster.
