We know that attending a new church can be overwhelming, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve tailored our visitor experience for people just like you. 

When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed by one of our volunteers or a member of the Essential Church staff. Just inside the building, you’ll find fresh ground coffee, hot tea and pastries; along with friendly people who will show you and your family where you can sit, where our children go during the service and where you can find our restrooms. Scroll below to find out what to expect on Sundays.
Fresh. Sincere. Christ-centered.


Sundays at 10:30am   |  Bellevue College |  Stick around for a free lunch after the service. 



Children’s Ministries

We love kids at Essential.  Nursery-5K are invited to check in before the service and go immediately to their classroom.  1st-5th grade students also check in, but will join their family in the service until they are dismissed before the sermon.  They will go to the E-Kids classroom where they will have a fun time learning the Bible.  Parents can pick up their kids immediately after the service.

Worship Service

Our service begins at 10:30am with a modern worship experience and welcoming remarks from one of our staff. After a time of singing, prayer, Bible reading and the Lord’s Supper, we have a Bible-based message from a pastor. The service concludes with an offering, but guests are not expected to give.

 Greet and Eat

We encourage you to take time to meet a few people while you are here. Before the service, we have coffee and pastries in the lobby.  

When the service is over, we invite you to stick around for a free lunch.  This is a great way to meet people and build relationships.  On your way out, be sure to stop by out guest table and pick up a “thank you” gift.
