7400 Woodlawn

7400 Woodlawn is a repurposed church building being transformed for the sake of community. With the closing of Bethany Lutheran (the former congregation at 7400 Woodlawn Ave NE) in May 2016, 7400 Woodlawn formed a few months later in order to connect and engage with the Green Lake neighborhood.

Partners and programming which serve to build community in the Green Lake neighborhood are developing at 7400 Woodlawn (see the Partners & Programming link). If you'd like to receive updates about future neighborhood and community events at 7400 Woodlawn (such as concerts, recitals, yoga classes, neighborhood potlucks, meditation groups, etc.) click on the Events link or email info@7400woodlawn.org.

If you know a non-profit organization looking for office space contact 7400 Woodlawn to explore a possible partnership.

Besides seeking creative ways to build community in the Green Lake neighborhood, a new worshipping community called Emmaus Table is forming at 7400 Woodlawn which is inclusive, inter-generational, open and affirming while grounded in a Lutheran expression.  Email pastor@7400woodlawn.org or click on the Worship link for more info.
