MOSES LAKE — Having a space that is your own is a special thing. Leadership at Moses Lake Worship Center, which recently moved into a new location on Third Avenue, know that at their new space they have the opportunity to do something special and impact the lives of many.

MLWC Pastor Jeremy Robertson, who founded the church with his wife Jennifer, is originally from Spokane and knows the faith culture in the area. Robertson didn’t jump right into the ministry. After college he joined the U.S. Marine Corps where he would serve for about a decade.

His involvement in the Marines brought him to California, but about 10 years ago a move to Moses Lake ensued and he has been here ever since. When he initially moved to the area Robertson was hired at the Grant County PUD, where he worked full time for a number of years.

“I started in the ministry about 10 years ago as a volunteer. The usual, ushering and then volunteering and my wife and I served as elders and associate pastors,” Robertson recalled.

The Robertsons received their formal ministry training at Destiny Leadership Institute about five years ago. He explained MLWC came to fruition after a “ripple” at a local congregation in town. The Robertsons started an in-home Bible study to help people with the transition from the church.

“We had about 60 people in the house so we started looking for avenues. My wife and I have always been obedient as far as following the call of God. The last two years we have been over at Galilee Baptist Church and using their facilities,” he said.

At Galilee MLWC typically met on Sunday and Wednesday nights, but when the opportunity for the church to have a space of its own became a possibility, church leadership knew they had to take the plunge. MLWC’s new location, 607 W. Third Ave., next door to Frontier Middle School, has given the church an opportunity to expand membership and different ministry offerings.

“Our main focus here is to reach and teach the Bible. Both my wife’s and my heart is to get people into and engaged in the word of God. So we have more flexibility and are able to do more,” he said. “This is our home for now. We are kind of seeing how it works and if it fits then we will probably go down that road of purchasing.”

MLWC itself does not have a denominational affiliation and aims to unify churches both locally and abroad.

“We don’t want to let the walls of denomination separate us. We are all here for the same purpose. We focus not only on knowing God, but experiencing God.”

The church currently offers a Wednesday night service at 6:30 p.m. and a Sunday morning Bible study at 9 a.m., followed by a 10 a.m. worship service. For more information on MLWC visit its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MLWorshipCtr.
