Glendale Evangelical Lutheran Church will celebrate its last Worship Service on Sunday, April 23

April 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Sunday, April 23, 2023, Glendale Evangelical Lutheran Church will conclude its ministry of public worship with a closing celebration, but its legacy of providing vibrant Christian ministry to the greater Burien community will continue.

As we previously reported, Church leadership has decided to sell the property, which includes what may be one of the largest pipe organs in a church on the west coast.

A service of “Celebration at the Conclusion of Worship and Ministry” will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 23, and an informal fellowship reception will follow.

The continuing legacy of Glendale Evangelical Lutheran campus includes:

  1. Glendale School: For more than 40 years, Glendale Lutheran School has been serving students in Pre-K through 8th grade. Enrollment current stands at 65 students, and the school remains open and operating.
  2. Four vital Christian congregations who gather here weekly for worship:
      • Iglesia De Restauracion Arca De Salvacion, meets on Sundays at 1 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
      • Christ Mercy Church, a growing Ethiopian congregation, meets on Sundays at 10 a.m. in the Chapel.
      • Ukrainian Church of West Seattle meets on Sundays at 1 p.m. in the Chapel.
      • El Camino Hispanic Church meets on Sundays at 4 p.m. in the Chapel.
      • Many other community organizations who will continue to use the campus for regularly scheduled and occasional programming.

Thien-An Trueliving Baptist Church from West Seattle will be taking over the operation of the campus April 30 and will continue supporting the four worshiping congregations and the Glendale Christian School.

Glendale Lutheran Church was organized on July 14, 1944, and began gathering in the Chapel on December 19, 1948.

Over the years, the campus has grown to include the Parish Education Building which was completed on August 30, 1955, and the 730-seat Sanctuary which was dedicated on June 18, 1967.

Come and join with many past members and friends of Glendale Evangelical Lutheran Church at this celebration on April 23 at 13455 2nd Ave. SW, Burien WA 98146 (map below).

Worship is at 10 a.m., and the celebration begins around 11:15 a.m.
