Church of the Beloved is looking for a single or married persons who are interested in living in a community house (actually, its a bit of a mansion!) in Edmonds WA, called Rosewood Manor. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
A little about the Manor:
Rosewood is a hundred year old, 8,500 sq. ft. mansion on 220th st. in Edmonds. It’s got 10 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, a breakfast room, library and dinning room and the backyard is being cultivated into a gardening, composting, green, growing playground! Rosewood is minutes from the freeway, 3 minutes from downtown Edmonds and 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. Rent is ridiculously reasonable and, while it takes a lot to heat a big old drafty manor, shared utilities keeps the individual costs low.
A little about the Community:
The Rosewood Community is a diverse group of Christians: some single, some married, some with kids, some students, some professionals. Politics, personality type, age, ethnicity, Christian affiliation – all these things vary between residents. The unifying thing is the love of God whose name is Jesus Christ and the desire to love and serve Christ in the messy context of community.
The main responsibilities of residents are:
i. paying rent/utilities,
ii. doing a weekly chore ,
iii. participating in Sunday night dinner/prayers/meeting and
iv. taking a minimum of a year long commitment.
It is a very big plus if you:
i. love to garden,
ii. have a heart for hospitality,
iii. are curious about following a rhythm of common prayer and
iv. desire to be a part of the Church of the Beloved.
What Rosewood is not:
i. A cheap place to simply rent a room,
ii. a cult that wants to tell you how to think,
iii. a place to hook up (um… although four couples have met and married at Rosewood… but still, it’s not a place to hook up) or
iv. an ideal Christian utopia free from conflict.
A little about the Future:
Church of the Beloved hopes to purchase Rosewood, continue a residential community, expand our focus on sustainability, begin extensive remodeling and continue a calendar of events to serve Edmonds and the surrounding area. Now all we need is you. Email email@example.com to inquire.
