Happening Now

Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings at 10:30, people from all over the Eastside meet at the Chapel at Northwest University for church. Church at Elevation is great. Come a few minutes early and someone will greet you at the door to welcome you and show you where to get some free coffee and a donut. Head into the main auditorium and grab a seat. We’ll sing a few songs about Jesus. We’ll do a little bit of announcements, you’ll meet some more great people, and a pastor will teach from the Bible. We may do another song or two, and we’ll have you out around noon.

During the Week

There are a lot of things going on throughout the week with Elevation Church. We have Community Groups that meet all over the Eastside to do everything from Bible studies to root for the Seahawks. The Elevation team volunteers to clean up Kirkland, cook meals for the homeless, and host community events. Elevation is full of families, students, couples, and kids all coming together to share life together and lift Jesus up on the Eastside and around the world.


Community Groups

Movie night, young mothers, young dudes group, Bible study, and more. There’s a community group for everyone. Find the right one for you and become a part. Click here to see the group descriptions and get connected!


15 Days Of Prayer

Our church is all about prayer. When we talk to God whether it’s just a conversation or when we’re desperately crying out, we know He hears us. That’s why we’re doing 15 days of prayer starting January 15, 2015. Click here to reserve a day to pray for our church and for the community around us!


1% Campaign

Our goal is to reach 1% of our city in this new season. We will love, connect and serve God and the people of Kirkland and invite you all to join! Greater things have yet to come in this city! Elevate Jesus with us!
