Building teamwork and expertise in all team and individual sports in a competitive environment through training, fellowship and goal oriented focus. Any individual or team sport may be included in this ministry. Slowly, we are building this into a larger ministry that encompasses a variety of sporting activities. We have had astonishing success in our first year with the leadership of Randy & Rod Halvorson. The Athletic Program is a Health Resource Center sponsored ministry.
Our triumphs include:
- A co-ed softball team that has won back-to-back championships for the Redmond league!
- A men's basketball team that won a Championship last spring!
- A men's dodge-ball team that placed 3rd!
- A men’s flag football team that has won two Championship titles
In the future we plan on having these sports along with others such as mountain and road biking, mountain climbing, volleyball, soccer, flag football, golf, and snowboarding. We also offer quarterly matches between team Young and Team Experience in football, basketball, volleyball, and softball. Play is open to all over 18. We also offer fantasy sports which are free online. All of this is in hopes that we can build friendships and reach out to our community. This is one part of the Greatest Caring Network.

Building strong families of great faith by understanding God's plan for marriage and parenting; enabling parents to raise spiritually and emotionally healthy children; healing the wounds sometimes found in families; and enriching marriages and family relationships.

Washington Cathedral loves to encourage people to step across cultures to make friendships and to find ways to serve the community. Each TLC Group of Washington Cathedral has a "Good Samaritan" project, some involve feeding the homeless, others visiting the lonely in convalescent centers, still others work alongside migrant workers. To join a TLC Group and look into their Good Samaritan projects, contact: TLCfirstname.lastname@example.org
If you are already part of a TLC and would like to become further involved in cross-cultural ministry, here are some more opportunities:
1. Short-term Work Trips: Throughout the year, Washington Cathedral partners with "Together for Transformation" to take teams to Honduras to serve the poor and learn about God's heart for social justice. The purpose of these trips is to empower participants to become "Kingdom Christians" - those who continuously plug in to what God is doing around the world.
In 2013 we had a Youth Mission trip scheduled in July. Download an application for the Adult Trip here and Youth Trip here and email it to Pastor Jackie or turn it into the church office for information on upcoming mission trips.
There is also one in the Fall to the Yakama Indian Reservation. For information contact Pastor Jackie: email@example.com .
2. Bilingual Spanish/English "Esperanza" service. More and more spanish-speaking people are moving to the Redmond-Woodinville-Kirkland area, without a spanish-speaking church for them to worship in! The bilingual Esperanza Service is one or our attempts to meet the spiritual needs of our community. Come check it out if you would like to serve! Sundays at 11:00 am in Spirit Falls Sanctuary.
3. Your ministry idea! If you have an idea for a cross-cultural ministry, please contact Pastor Jackie.

Enthused Christian Creating Excellence in Leadership
By Rich Skinner, EXCEL President
When Pastor Tim established Washington Cathedral he had a dream about developing a group of ministries which would address various needs of our modern society. From that vision came E.X.C.E.L. - Enthused Christians Creating Excellence in Leadership - geared to support the spiritual growth and development for those building the business and career component of their lives. EXCEL has evolved into a non-profit organization with a wide variety of activities.
• Both an online http://www.wacathedral.org/businessdirectory and a printed version of a church-wide business directory is created new each year with business people who commit to running their businesses based upon a biblical model for ethics and honesty.
• Monthly “Impact” lunch @12:15pm on the 4th Sunday of each month meets for a variety of topics usually based upon a video/dvd series from acknowledged Christian business experts.
• Weekly TLC groups meeting in various locations for one hour from 7-8 AM (see EXCEL TLC’s)
• Regular classes on budgeting, financial management and personal wealth development based upon several leading Christian financial experts teachings.
• Support for those seeking career changes and/or new job opportunities. EXCEL has a computer and software with capacity for writing resumes and other business tools, along with advice and counsel.
• Social networking opportunities
• Business and professional articles posted on the Washington Cathedral website.
We recently had a class on Promoting Yourself Using Social Media covering LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook among other programs. See the PowerPoint Presentation from this class here.
For anyone interested in getting involved with EXCEL, please e-mail Rich Skinner at Rich@luxurient.com so he can help you find the perfect interconnecting opportunity. |Rich Skinner||Rich||Linda Skinner||Excel||Rich Skinnerfirstname.lastname@example.org|

Attending a TLC (Small Group) is one way to get involved in the church family. TLC's are at the heart of our church; they are the heart of the “Great Caring Network”. Our motto is "At Washington Cathedral, NO ONE STANDS ALONE!" Who should join a TLC?
Everyone! TLC's are the ‘heart’ of a growing, healthy church – a place where friendships are formed, dreams are found, and God’s presence permeates! Whether you are a seasoned-veteran, a new Christian or looking into the faith, a TLC is the place for you. What is a TLC?
Each TLC is a “family”, a small group meeting together on a regular basis, a wonderful place for support. Each TLC is a great place for practical application Bible study – where people feel comfortable asking questions, participating in discussions, and hearing others’ insights and personal experiences. A TLC is a place where meaningful friendships and lasting relationships develop. They are meeting in homes, here at Washington Cathedral, at a restaurant, on a baseball diamond or golf course, all over; there’s probably one meeting in your area! Feeling a part of God’s family is the heart of the TLC Ministry. Just how big is a TLC?
A TLC can range in size from a few to many – but usually it is group of 12 to 20 people. Which TLC is right for me?
Washington Cathedral’s goal is to create TLC's to meet virtually every circumstance and personal situation. Every TLC has a unique personality and focus. We consider each Sunday School Class a TLC, and the teachers shepherd and love each child in their care. Some TLC's are for women only, some are for men, and some are mixed. Some are for couples, some for singles, and some a mixture. Some groups are athletic, some groups are creative, and some are service groups. As you will see from the list below, there is a TLC–just for you!

The Together for Transformation (previously Charity Alliance), one of the five non-profit roundtable organizations of Washington Cathedral, has recently streamlined its vision, purpose statement, and its name. You may now know it as:
"Together for Transformation" - a Christian organization dedicated to transforming the most desperate situations of the world through strategic partnerships. Check out our website
Together for Transformation brings hope to the poorest of the poor one garbage dump community at a time. We do this by openning "transformation projects" in the most desperate situations of the world: often countries torn by war and environmental disastors. We focus our efforts on the most vulnerable and the most exploited; often these are children in circumstances of inhumane labor, prostitution, war, and homelessness.
Our first transformation project is in the Tegucigalpa garbage dump community, supporting and working with the Honduran development project "Amor, Fe, y Esperanza." For more information about this project, check out its website: www.afehonduras.org
If you would like more information about Together for Transformation, or to get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
