Building History

The Lake Washington Methodist Congregation in Kirkland, WA, formed in 1959, and first held services at the Rose Hill Elementary School during 1959 and 1960. The Seattle Times announced plans for the church's construction on 07/15/1961: "Construction of the first unit of Lake Washington Methodist Church, 7525 132nd Av. N.E., Kirkland, is expected to begin early next month. The church valued at about $45,000, will include a chapel seating 125 persons and an educational unit. The congregation hopes to hold opening services in the church at Christmas, the Rev. Dr. Jonathan W. King, pastor, said. Ground-breaking services were held Sunday. The structure will be the only Methodist church in Kirkland. The architect is Durham, Anderson & Freed. Dr. King was appointed to his post last month after three years as minister of a church in Haverhill, Mass." (See "Methodists To Build in Kirkland," Seattle Times, 07/15/1961, p. 3.)
