The Renew dream is for people in North Lynnwood and beyond to experience the grace and mercy of God and to be transformed as images of God. We believe we are given to in order to give away, and so we will endeavor to love and serve our neighbors in tangible ways.
- relational, an authentic community where everyone belongs
- passionate about justice and mercy, with a heart for the marginalized, refugee and immigrant.
- a community that values diversity; we desire to be multi-ethnic, inter-generational and we encourage the diversity of backgrounds within our leadership.
We got our start as a small home-group that met in our pastor’s living room. We called ourselves Seed. Over the course of meeting, we realized that all of us in the group had to some extent experienced dissatisfaction with or hurt in the church. At the same time we were hungry for God’s love and to be a part of His mission of love to the world. Rather than throwing out the bathwater with everything in it, we joined the Evangelical Covenant Church and became Renew Covenant Church, embodying an identity and vision for being renewed by God for the renewal of our neighborhoods.
On August 27th, 2017 our congregation voted unanimously to move north to Lynnwood. After 70 years of ministry, Martha Lake Covenant church had closed their doors, and our Conference invited us to move into the space.
Renew is a new multethnic church plant coming to 164th St SW in Lynnwood. We are laid-back, community-oriented, and relationally-driven. We are excited about living authentic lives that embody love, mercy, and hope in ways that are meaningful to our neighbors. We are a community that values diversity; we desire to be multi-ethnic, inter-generational and we encourage the diversity of backgrounds within our leadership. Hope to meet you soon!
Our Founding Verse
They will be called Oaks of Righteousness,
planted by the Lord to glorify himself.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins;
they will restore formerly deserted places;
they will renew ruined cities,
places deserted in generations past.
