From the Pastor - June 30, 2018


Dear Friends,

Lake Union is a great church, filled with great people. God is doing some great things in our midst, and there is an amazing future in front of us. Lake Union does not stand alone as an independent congregation. We are a Covenant church. That means that we are part of a local conference (The Northwest Conference). It also means that we are part of a national church (The Evangelical Covenant Church).

What that means to each of us will likely vary from person to person. However, there are some big picture things that we should all know.

  1. Greater things can be done in our conference area because we are doing them together.
  2. Greater things can be done in our nation because we are doing them together.
  3. The conference and the national church provide us with printed resources, theological resources and life changing events for both pastors and lay people.
  4. The conference and the national church have wonderful people that can be helpful when new challenges arise. They are open to conversations with pastors and lay people.
  5. Mission projects around the world are undertaken because of the gathering of resources from local congregations.
  6. Missionaries are sent around the world, again because of our shared resources.

If you missed my sermon last Sunday, I encourage you to check it out. It will give you some great news about how our national church is doing, and why it’s important. Additionally, there is a short document (click here to view), that can give you even more information that I was able to share in my message. I hope this information is encouraging to you, and I pray that as you grow deeper in faith you will get even more involved!

In God’s Grip,
Pastor Mark
