The Fab Five take a tour of Mars Hill Everett

On a recent Saturday, Grace and I, along with the Fab Five, took a field trip up to Everett. We wanted to see the progress on our soon-to-be new home for the northernmost Mars Hill location, an awesome and growing church with some people we know very well and love very much.

It was awesome.

Pastor Sutton found the building. It’s an old National Guard Armory—45,000 square feet, complete with huge bank vaults that stored guns and ammo along with firing ranges in the basement. We got a great deal, and the building is in an amazing location right down the street from Comcast Arena, the heart of the entire region north of Seattle.

Mars Hill Everett is ministering to a very important part of our region, and they’re growing. Last year in September, Everett averaged 575 people per Sunday and, in the last three weeks, they have averaged over 700 people, with last Sunday’s attendance at 780.

Thank you to Pastor Ryan Williams (lead pastor at Mars Hill Everett) and Pastor Brandon Andersen (executive pastor at Mars Hill Everett) for leading the charge here. We are still finishing work and raising money for the project, but hope to move in as early as Christmas Eve, if we get our permits in time, or by January in time for the start of our upcoming series on the book of James.

People from the church have been putting in countless hours doing demolition, painting, woodwork, etc. Almost every community group has come in and helped with the building project. Most of them have been serving 1–2 times a month. The place is looking amazing, and these hardworking people deserve a standing ovation.

The people of Mars Hill Everett have been very faithful. Over 90% of the members have given to the fund. Since September 2012, we have collected 50% above and beyond our annual budget. (Mars Hill Everett brings in about $900,000 a year, and we are close to bringing in an additional $450,000 in the past 13 months.)

We don’t have deep pockets, or big givers. What we have are a lot of faithful givers doing what they can every month.

What we need now, Mars Hill, is some help from the rest of you in order to finish making this home for the Everett church ready. We’re almost there, but we’ve still got a little ways to go. Everett is trying to raise $750,000 to get the building ready, and we’ve got $316,000 left to complete this project. As the people of Mars Hill Everett have demonstrated, all it takes is enough people giving a little bit together to make things happen.

We have amazingly generous people in Everett. They are all in. Will you help them move into their new home?

Ashley, the oldest Driscoll child at 16, brought her camera and captured some great photos that I thought would make a very cool photo essay so you could see the progress.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids. To learn more about each of these, click the links below.

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.

Cheerful givers wanted

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
