The Short History of the Slavic Pentecostal Church “Sulamita”
Slavic Pentecostal Church “Sulamita” was born in April of 1996, when a group of 35 people decided to come together to worship and serve God. In 1998, church “Sulamita” registered in the State of Washington. The place of worship was a rented church building in the city of Lynnwood. The church membership numbers grew steadily, and by 2004, when the church outgrew the maximum occupancy at the rented church building, a decision was made to purchase our own property for a new place of worship.
Thanks to the diligence of the church members and a financial loan, the church purchased this warehouse building in the city of Mukilteo. After less than two years, since acquiring necessary paperwork and completing renovations, the building was complete. In 2006, the church began its new mile-stone in the new building.
At this time, our church continues to grow, worshiping our Lord, serving people and sharing the Good News together.
Every year we have Water Baptism for anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior and is ready to publicly confess their faith in Jesus Christ.
We offer Sunday school for children ages 4-12, a Nursery for younger children, classes for teenagers, native language lessons, youth services and prayer services weekly. We offer an opportunity to study the Word of God in greater depth by attending The Slavic Theological Seminary at the church. The seminary is an international branch of the Lviv Theological Seminary in Ukraine. The program offers a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Theology and a separate program focused on the Foundational Doctrines of our Faith. The church ministries and opportunities to serve continue to expand.
All these years we have seen the Hand of the Almighty, which guides and helps us. To Him we give all the glory, for His is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
