End of year giving 2022

reflecting the impossible goodness of God

Dear Church Family, 
As we prepare for Christmas together and my family spends its first holiday season here at Woodinville Alliance Church, I want to take a moment to express how thankful I am for each of you and share how grateful we are for your generosity that you have shown over this year.

“I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, what God has done through the churches in Macedonia” (2 Corinthians 8). In this text, Paul became overjoyed because of how closely tied the generosity of the church was to their sense of purpose. “They begged us again and again for the gracious privilege of sharing in the gift… their first action was to dedicate themselves to the Lord and to us for whatever directions God might give them.”  

As our church leaders and I look towards the future we continue as an organization to be intentional in our focus. Emphasizing a life fully restored to the Father through a personal encounter with Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. Prioritizing relationships and living life together in community. And equipping folks to live out and share the gift of their God designed purpose and identity wherever they are.  

A huge part of our heart as a church is to reflect the impossible goodness of God to our community and beyond. Our response to His goodness often overflows in our generosity. It’s a generosity that heals, transforms, and changes lives all around us. And amazingly, your partnership and passion with us in these biblical priorities is already bringing about healthy stories and signs, including numeric growth. A few highlights of these Kingdom stories include:


  • As part of a growing network of partnerships with existing mission workers, last June we sent a team to work with the YWAM Mazatlan base, returning in April 2023. Our ongoing goal is to equip members of the church family, across generations, to live a lifestyle of outreach and to support our ministry partners as we share the love of Jesus.

  • “The Tuesday Guys” meet weekly to care for WA Church property. They’ve built a group that has cared for each other’s families, invited unsaved neighbors, and prayed for each other faithfully for years.
  • In youth, we are watching students get out of the ‘consumer seat’, taking risks, inviting friends and personally ministering to them in bold and loving faith. The group has seen a steady stream of new students coming from atheist and agnostic backgrounds, finding a safe place to ask questions and discover faith. Many have made decisions to follow Jesus, gotten baptized, invited others, are serving in the church body, and are praying for OTHERS to encounter Jesus.  



  • We had almost 70 people participate in our belonging classes this year—taking a step towards joining what God is doing here and curious about how to connect more deeply.
  • We had over 130 participate in Freedom Immersion workshops. These weekends are foundational to our desire to be a body of believers equipped to ALL be ‘ministers of reconciliation’. They are designed to build community, restoration & freedom for Christ-followers.  You can watch freedom testimonies from February here, from July here .



  • Prayer & worship have become increasingly significant to the life of our church, grown from a desire to minister TO the Lord and a hunger to see him move as he promised in Isaiah 61. We see this in Tuesday morning prayer, nights of worship, developing worship & prayer teams across the ages, leadership’s commitment to prioritizing personal prayer & worship, and making space for specific prayer and testimony on Sundays.
  • We celebrated the baptisms and testimonies of church family members, ages 12 to 62!  If you weren’t at any of the baptism services, you can find those here. What joy to see people risking, sharing their story as part of God’s greater story.
  • On Sunday, December 4th, our children lead in worship & shared their wisdom with the rest of the church family.  If you missed it, you can hear the Psalms they wrote here.  We believe that our kids are a vital part of our church—here for the formation of their own faith relationship, not just childcare.  Our desire is to develop kids who think beyond Sunday Bible stories & fun programs….kids that own their faith, listen for His voice, and are responding to their personal friendship with God.

December always proves to be a significant month in resourcing ministries at Woodinville Alliance Church. I invite you to pray about a special year-end contribution above and beyond your regular giving so that we might be empowered to move forward with a generosity of spirit, as we prepare to take steps of faith in 2023.


Don’t forget, all contributions received or postmarked before midnight on December 31st, 2022 will be credited towards your 2022 giving record for tax purposes.

If you would like to know how much you have contributed to-date or you have questions or concerns, contact dianeb@wachurch.us. You can expect your 2022 giving statement via email by the end of January.

Thank you for your faithfulness in building God’s Kingdom at Woodinville Alliance Church and beyond through your continued generosity! I am grateful and incredibly fortunate to be a part of a group of people that are devoted to spreading God's beauty to the world.
