About Us

The Church of the Resurrection was founded in 1957 as a mission church in the Lake Hills neighborhood of Bellevue by St Thomas Episcopal Church in Medina.  This new congregation moved into its current location in the 152nd block of Main Street in 1962.  We are an Episcopal church in the Diocese of Olympia.  We are good stewards of our funds and have an Endowment Fund.  We are located close to Crossroads Mall, Lake Hills library, Microsoft, Bellevue College and both Sammamish and Interlake High schools.

The diversity of our church members is one expression of God’s abundance among us and one which makes our fellowship and ongoing practice of our faith all the more interesting and vibrant.  We are a congregation large enough to serve and care for one another and small enough to know everyone.  We are a Christian family worshiping and praying together.  We welcome new folks to join our church family.

Currently we are in a time of transition to call a permanent priest.  However we are blessed and are enjoying our worship services led by a few very special retired priests.  One can say that we are never bored with just one priest and one sermon style!

We are known for our hospitality and concern for one another as well as our success with outreach programs.  Hearts and Hammers is a yearly one day blitz of which we are proud of along with other neighborhood projects.

The Church of the Resurrection participates in the Lake Hills Interfaith Covenant with its partner congregation of St Louise Roman Catholic Church, Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, temple B’nai Torah, The Episcopal Church of the Holy Apostles and …….

We are a Christian community living by Faith, known by Love and a voice of Hope.  Come join us.
