Our History & Photos
In October, 1984, Rick Morse held the first worship service of Lake Washington Christian Church in a home in the Kingsgate area of Kirkland, with 8 people attending. The congregation was chartered in 1986 and Rev. Morse was called as the Organizing Pastor.
Since that time LWCC has nested, moved, transitioned, grown, shrunk, grown, constructed, and remodeled. Six pastors have served our congregation: Dr. Rev. Rick Morse (1984-2000), Rev. Marvin Eckfeldt (Interim 2001-2002), Rev. Mike Grogan (2002-2005), Rev. Kerry Grogan (2002-2010), Rev. Wahhab Baldwin (Interim 2010-2012), and Rev. Kara Markell (2012-Present).
In 1992, ground was broken for our first church home, and in 2008 the Washington State Department of Transportation bought the property for an I-405 on-ramp. Our current church home was purchased in 2009, and we are working to make LWCC a vital and active part of our Kirkland neighborhood.
As LWCC looks to the future, we continue to listen for God's guidance, so that we can grow as a witnessing, loving, and serving congregation.See our photos!
