Volunteer work parties in Tacoma and Everett


Mars Hill Church Tacoma has put more than 6,000 volunteer hours into preparing their new location—that’s more than $150,000 worth of volunteer labor.

All 43 of the church’s community groups are actively participating in work parties that take place Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, plus some Saturdays. By the end of the project they will have invested close to 8,000 volunteer hours renovating the inside of the church.

Three key areas have kept volunteers occupied: the office, kids’ area, and sanctuary.

The office had severe water damage and bad cracks in the walls and ceilings. These have been repaired and repainted.

After the ceiling tiles are installed, the office area will be finished!

The kids’ area was originally a maze of tiny rooms that needed a lot of love.

Volunteers tore down walls to expand the rooms, reinforced the ceiling, created new walls, put in all new drywall, and applied a lot of paint.

The last thing to be done is to carpet the entire area.

Tacoma kids earned their keep recently with a kids’ painting party and expect their area to be ready by December 14th.

In the sanctuary, the ceiling was literally falling down when Mars Hill Tacoma took over. That ceiling has been completely rehabilitated and looks spectacular.

More time went into that ceiling than any other area, requiring roughly 2,500 hours by itself! The next stage is to finish painting the sanctuary walls so the floors can be refinished, the aisles carpeted, and the pews replaced.


Mars Hill Church Everett hosted work parties every Wednesday and Saturday from June through September of 2013.

Since Labor Day they have upped that number to four work parties per week.

On average, 10 to 25 people have been putting in hard labor every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night, plus all day on Saturdays.

That number grew to 50 people a week in the fall.

Everett poured out 400 hours of work parties totaling more than 5,000 volunteer hours and $100,000 of donated labor.

All necessary demolition, painting, landscaping, finishing, cleaning, framing, minor electrical and plumbing, flooring, and IT have been successfully completed.

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.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

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.
