Bonney Lake is among the fastest growing cities in Washington. It has been a city for over 50 years, but has seen substantial growth in the last 5, and is growing faster than ever. There are new homes and businesses, and the schools are trying to keep up. It is primarily a commuter town, with the main income earner in the family working in Tacoma, Seattle or even Olympia. There are no major industries in Bonney Lake. It is primarily supported by retail businesses. Church On The Hill desires to meet the need of this changing environment. The families moving here have different worship styles and interests than many of those whom have been long-time residents, and are highly unchurched. Our desire is to have an atmosphere of acceptance and community. Everyone is welcome!
