Automate the important.
Open Life values generosity.



So, we have an App…



Why an App?

Over 60% of all use of the tools online these days are accessed through cell phones.  This app allows Open Life to put tools in your pocket so you can have access to them anytime and anywhere.  Now a church in Bonney Lake, Sumner or Wilkeson can make it’s way to your home, work and commute.



Download It

You can download it from IOS, Android, Windows or Amazon (not Blackberry because we have all moved on, seriously let it go. Well, actually you can access the Google Play Store and download it onto your Blackberry that way, we still love you too).




Is it kept up to date?

The app is the first thing we update.  If you need to know it you can find out first when we push out notifications through the app and then you can link to it on your computer later right here if you like to be cool like that.

Watch the welcome video.

we are excited to connect with you
wait no longer, join Open Life for church in Bonney Lake.


the cultures we are known for

There are many churches in Bonney Lake, churches in Sumner, and the surrounding region…so what set’s Open Life apart? It’s our culture.

We Help People Experience Jesus

The drive behind everything we do is helping people experience Jesus; his love, forgiveness and hope. We help people experience Jesus through our lives.
How are you helping people experience Jesus?


We're Present With Our Community

We do life shoulder to shoulder with those around us. We show up when opportunities arise, and live visibly active along side our community. You can’t lead those you don’t know, love and serve.
How are you active within the culture around you?

We're Uncomplicated

We keep things simple so people have space to do life with those around them and remain present with their community.
Do you have margin in your life?


We're Generous

Considering the needs of others above ourselves is key in experiencing a life that is truly worth living. Going above expectations in meeting the needs of others is a risk we are quick to pursue.
Are you unselfishly giving your time and resources?

We're Genuine

 We don’t pretend, ignoring the realities of life. We walk through life with each other embracing both the mess and the good life brings.
Is your life free from facade?


We Have Fun

We intentionally and intuitively create a culture of fun in order to love life to the full.
Are you having fun?

We love every generation

what people are saying

  • “It’s not only fun to just meet together but so valuable to talk through all that Open Life is about and actively doing to live out our mission and values. There are a lot of moving parts that we all need to be aware of so that we can help where needed."
    Dani#proud Young Married from Lakeland
  • “I love the fact that OpenLife is a community of people leading people. This focus encourages us to all be involved, serving, giving, and loving not only at OpenLife but outside it. Gospel is not about just getting people to come to the church but to be the church, living a life that just draws those ,that God has called, in. It is a great honor to be part of this journey and be part of the whole redemption process.”
    CraigFamily from Falling Water
  • "Open Life is a great church where it's easy to feel welcome. I show up with jeans and a hat most weeks and never feel out of place. The messages are based on scripture and are engaging for me in my life. I would recommend it to all my friends."
    Jadon Google Review
  • "I think I was refreshed by the change in preaching style from what I've been accustomed to in the past...My son said matter-of-factly that he would consider going here again."

  • “As someone who is fairly new to the church, it was interesting to me to hear a bit more about the history of the church as well as the core values, mission, and opportunities to connect and to serve….there are many!  Though I’m just beginning to get to know people here, I’ve felt at home in this church since the 1st Sunday I attended.  So appreciate the way the church is involved in the community.”
    Rachel55+ attendee from Trilogy in Tehaleh
  • "After visiting Open Life Church the first time, we came back again because we liked the worship service, liked the message by Pastor Thad, felt welcomed, and, most importantly, felt a presence of The Holy Spirit in a way that I personally have not felt in a long time. I couldn't quit crying, although I tried to because I didn't want to look like the crazy lady."

Everyone has a story

Every story counts.




Connecting with God and each other is a key practice of Open Life.  Relationships are at the center of everything in life, and key to the DNA of a church doing life together present with their community.  


Serving God and others is at the heart of the example we follow set for us by Jesus. Nothing adds to life like making it about something other than ourselves.


We all have something to share with God and others.  Time, talents and treasures are gifts to be shared with the communities we live and worship in.
