About

Our History

BEGINNING

The community of Smokey Point was little more than a wide spot on the road back in the early 1950's when a group of believers gathered at the local Grange Hall to launch a new church. Over the next decade the fellowship constructed their own building and affiliated with the Christian & Missionary Alliance. The church, although quite small through the years, was marked by a genuine love for the Lord and each other. The prayer of the church was, and continues to be, that God would use us to be a lighthouse to our community.

GROWTH

In the mid-1980's we began to transition to a contemporary-style of ministry. Growth soon necessitated building, and a 550 seat multi-purpose meeting area was constructed. Meanwhile, a weekly "Investigator Service" was launched as the church stepped up its efforts to reach the community. By 1992, many Sundays the church was ministering to nearly 1000 people. As our growth continued, but facilities didn't. In 1999, in order to minister to as many people as possible, we began offering two similar worship services on Sunday mornings and later added a Saturday evening. A two-story classroom/office addition was completed in January of 1999, a similar second building was finished in the Fall of 2000.

SETTING

Smokey Point is located just off of I-5, less than one hour north of Seattle. It is the point where dairy farms and Boeing meet. This rural setting is rapidly changing as the recent construction of numerous banks, housing developments, restaurants and retail stores verify that Smokey Point is a growing area. The recent Navy Family Complex and the home port of the USS Abraham Lincoln nearby have also brought growth, activity and opportunities to the area.

Twenty minutes to the west lies the pleasant shoreline of the Puget Sound and a few miles to the east rise the majestic Cascade Mountains. Hiking, skiing, water sports, fishing, camping, scuba diving and numerous other recreational opportunities literally surround the area.
