If you're looking for a place to check out God in a relaxed environment, we're pretty sure you've found it.

Relaunching in 2015

Sound Church is taking a break from regular weekly services to refresh, retrain and retool for our relaunch in 2015. In the mean time, we are actively seeking people that want to make a difference in our area and be part of the greatest cause on the Earth!

We want YOU to let us know that you are interested in learning more, without any obligation. Send us a note and we will let you know when our next shinding is going on.

What we offer
  • Free Parking
  • Kids Ministry
  • Friendly Faces
  • Free Eats

What to Expect

We’re very much a “come-as-you-are” kind of place. You don’t need to dress up but, if you want to, go with what you might wear out to dinner. Most people bring their smartphone or tablet rather than a Bible to follow along with the service, including all the scriptures, at Bible.com or using the FREE Bible APP.

Fill your coffee cup, because you can bring it all into the service with you. When the band starts playing, you’ll love the songs. That’s because one of our favorite things at Sound Church is great music. After the music, you’ll hear a talk but it won’t be a typical sermon. It will make you laugh, think, and it will give you something you can use in real life. Different? Definitely. Boring or confusing? Never.

What we offer
  • Relaxed Environment
  • Digital Notes
  • Fun for Kids
  • Great Live Music

Why We Do It

We do what we do because we want to reach people who are far from God. We’re here to Amplify Jesus by reaching up, out and in. We follow Jesus’ example of using stuff from normal, everyday life to show people how much God loves them. Our style isn’t for everyone, but if all churches were the same that would be pretty boring. And God’s not boring.

Our Values
  • Belong before you believe
  • No judging, no politics, just Jesus
  • Make it fun
  • Keep it simple
  • Church starts when the service ends
  • Do your best
  • Give it away

Are you ready to start a conversation?

Church starts when the service ends.

Why can't Church be different?

We are the church for those that don't like church located in Lynnwood, Washington.

Are you interested in the NEXT STEP??

Our Next Steps Classes happen a number of times throughout the year. Head over to our Events section to find the next set of classes.


We’ll feed ya lunch while we tell ya our story, and give you the lowdown on how we got started. This s the best and fastest way to get to know all about our church and our pastors (well, besides coming over for dinner).
If you like what you hear in in Next Steps Class 1, we can help you find out where you fit based on what you are good at and like to do. This class is to learn about yourself, how you tick and what gifts you have. Like all of our other environments, this is hassle free with no obligation at the end, not like a timeshare presentation or anything.

There is something great about being part of something bigger than yourself. Find fulfillment as you serve God and serve others on the Sound Church Dream Team.

Work with Kids, Music, Technology, Hospitality, Leadership, Students and more… Fill out the Dream Team Application or get in touch with any of us and we can get you plugged in!


Sound Group is our fancy catchy name for a small group. And these groups are the best place to build meaningful relationships.

SOAP is our daily Bible reading plan (Check out the next tab). Meet us at our house for good conversation and a devotional using Sound Church’s SOAP method and Bible-reading schedule. We like root beer, real beer and the Bible, and we couldn’t think of a better way to have time in the Word with new friends. There’s no weekly study homework, so come when you can.
Tuesdays @7 @Judson & Kristina’s House (Call, text or email for directions)
Call or text Judson @ 253-468-7190 or Kristina @ 253-228-0923; or email judson@soundchurch.tv or Kristina@soundchurch.tv 


Ever feel like you need a little more from the messages on Sundays or want some of your questions answered?  talkitoverblogCome join us as we take in more of God’s word!


Coed GroupWednesdays at 7 PM, Starbucks on 196th and 40th, Contact Terrance Ramirez at  terrance@soundchurch.tv



A great time to get out of the house and connect with other mom’s while your kids have a safe place to play! This Sound Group meets Thursdays at 12 noon at the Bartels’ home in Lynnwood.

Contact Pastor Kristina Bartels at Kristina@soundchurch.tv for directions or more information.

SOAP is Sound Church’s way of making reading the bible simple.
SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer. Why do we like SOAP? Because spending time with God is freaking awesome. Click the buttons below to download the latest list of SOAP scriptures, or click here to scroll to the latest SOAP Tweet. You can also get the daily SOAP feed by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter.

While we prefer to meet you in person and have a conversation about what we believe and why, we realize that it’s not always possible to do that. Also, some people feel more comfortable if they can get a preview, and we understand that (although once you meet us we know you will just love us).

Click here for a summary (If needed right-click and hit save as) of our Statement of Faith, and then make plans to chat with us at our Sound Church Next Steps Event. If you’d like to attend a Next Steps Event, mouse over a few tabs and click on “Next Steps.” If you have any questions, that’s a great place to ask them!

Interested in other outreach? At Sound Church, we believe YOU are part of the solution!

Most of our outreach is done “off the radar” through the life-giving relationships built in our Sound Groups… Get hooked up with one of those by mousing over to the Sound Groups tab. But check out these other important ways Sound Church shares the love of God!

ARC Church Planting

Sound Church was started with the help of the Association of Related Churches (ARC) and we like to pay it forward and help other churches get started.
Statistically, there is no better way to reach people with the Gospel message than to plant more churches. That is why a portion of our budget every month goes back to ARC to start more life giving churches all around the world!

Vision House Jacobs Well

Kids should NEVER be homeless! Tonight in OUR CITY, moms and kids will sleep on the street, in cars, sheds, or anywhere they can find shelter. We can make a difference. See more details about Vision House Jacobs Well here.

You can make a difference NOW by giving securely through Sound Church here.


Wave Kids

Wave Kids meet at the same time as adult service on Sundays.  Your kids will love it and will beg to go back each week

We know that your kids want to have fun, and you want them to be safe, and to learn something!

From the beginning, Sound Church has had the very best in our Wave Kids Staff!  Every Wave volunteer has had a thorough background check and our standards ensure your little one’s safety at all times!

But more than that, they will talk your ears off on the way home about what they learned at WAVE!  Do your kids, and yourself a big favor and catch the WAVE!


Resonate Students

IMG_2469verb /ˈreznˌāt/

Produce or be filled with a deep, full, reverberating sound

As students, we are all looking for something that matters; something that will resonate within us. Most likely, the last thing to do that is “church”. Yet we all know there is more: more to life, more to relationships, more to education, more to all of it than what “the system” tell us.

Why not see for yourself what else is out there, explore God at your own pace, and have a blast all the while…

For the next Resonate experience, spot it on the Events calendar.





Yup, church can be boring. But you won’t be bored here!
