Our medium-sized church is located in Bellevue, WA--a growing city across Lake Washington from Seattle. The city is culturally diverse, with excellent schools, colleges and universities in the area, high tech jobs in the region, and year-round recreational opportunities. Our church is part of the Christian Reformed denomination and is at an exciting time of transition, as we look forward to being part of God's mission, having recently celebrated our Jubilee 50-year anniversary.
