Administrative history

In the fall of 1987 a small group of people joined together to form the steering committee for a mission congregation then known as the Evangelical Lutheran Church of South Everett. Under the leadership of Mark Samuelson, the mission developer pastor called by the ELCA, they met regularly in the bingo hall on Paine Field while reaching out to the community and inviting others to join them in worship. Organization Day was held on January 8, 1989, and on that day the group that had affectionately been known as “Potluck Lutheran” officially became Spirit of Christ. Over the course of the next few years they meant in various places, and finally in the spring of 1994 construction began on a permanent church building. On May 21st, 1995 the building was dedicated. The congregation voted to dissolve on January 20th, 2002, and the final service was held at the end of May, 2002
