Women's Adventure Club

Ministry Leader: Melinda Pedersen

All women at Lake Union (members, guests both current and future) are considered "members" of the Women's Adventure Club. The group meets once a month wherever the best adventure seems!


Our mission is to bring the women of Lake Union Evangelical Covenant Church together to connect and develop friendships, physical health and be active in our community within a family of believers. Enjoying the great outdoors and finding places of refreshment for our hearts and souls together.


Our first outing was:

Friday, December 6:30pm

Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant Christmas



We had an amazing time and look forward to many more adventures with the women of Lake Union!
