|A Little About Us
Welcome to the McNiece family website. The McNieces have been married for over 35 years and in 2012, purchased a home with the intent of providing
hospitality, and a community living environment.
They previously ran the Christian Community Living Center in Lynnwood. For 15 years the CCLC was a community home opened to those in need of
emergency housing. People stayed for anywhere from weeks to years. Over time the house specialty became single moms and woman in stressed
marriages, though there were single dads and whole families who joined the CCLC Family over the years. As time went by it became evident that some
level of counseling training would be beneficial to help meet the needs of the residents. In the late 1990's, Andrew & Beckie attended the Basic Prayer
Counseling Training course offered by Elijah House. Afterward they had an opportunity to teacher assist in a second basic school, and after that concluded
they maintained a full counseling schedule for the next year. Since then they have provided lay-counseling services on an as needed basis for those
referred by word of mouth.
Other involvements include Andrew and Becks joint development of curriculum and leading the Sunday morning Junior High School program at
Lynnwood Neighborhood Church for 10 years; Beck's involvement in Children's Ministry, Administrative and Office Support, Intercessory Prayer and
the development of E-Pray email prayer chain ministries at Family Life Center and Living Hope over 15 and 6 years respectively. From 2004-2007, Beck
and Andrew led Power Alley, a home fellowship group that stressed Fellowship, Worship, The Word, Prayer and Outreach. Over the years, Andrew has
participated in four Worship Teams in various support roles, and also occasionally leading worship. Andrew has also authored over 80 songs.
Beck is currently a home health care provider for Companion Care. Andrew has a background in Law Enforcement and is very happily employed.
Andrew is also a Ham Radio Operator at Technician's level with the call sign K7AXZ.
NEW NAME... CONTINUING MISSION!
As children, how many of us loved to hear a good story? For some time now our church, New
Life Fellowship, has been immersed in the Bible's story of God's love for, and redemption of
In times past, God's truths were conveyed through oral tradition and in keeping with that
concept, NLF is broadening it's focus on the simplicity of God's story through our
"re-branding" as Story Church!
While the name has changed, our focus on the greatest story ever told... God's story of our
redemption, continues on in even greater clarity. All are invited to join us on at Story Church...
Sundays from 10a-11:30a, located at 20618 Filbert Road, Bothell Washington.
September afforded two short road trips. The first was down to Oregon to touch bases with
Beck's mom. While there we got to treat her to dinner at Sheri's, and later that day Andrew got
to assemble two book shelves Dorothy acquired for an amazing " two for one" price!
Andrew took a second trip down to the Portland area to explore Powell Bookstore. Now those
who know Andrew well may be wondering what use he would have for a bookstore... he
almost never reads! But in yet another manifestation of what he refers to as his "altered state",
he's found a new love for reading and books in general. He's so take with this newfound
interest that he's even taking a speed reading course!
A couple of road trips are slated for October. One to California to visit Andrew's mom & sister
and to touch bases with Beck's brother and his wife in Morro Bay. The second October trip
will be a solo run for Andrew to parts yet undecided, but will likely include water, trees and
TERRY & KRISTI WED
Our long time renter Terry Butters recently wed his girlfriend Kristie and has moved out of our
RV. As that part of our "nest" empties, we wish them both our best as they step out into their
HOUSE WARMING CELEBRATION!
Congratulatios to Ester Hurd, former Power Alley'n and former LHCC vocalist, on the purchase
of her new home! We had the opportunity to attend her house warming and were so excited
with her over her new acquisition. It's a home well deserved.
Many attended from both her current church and various others she's participated in,
including our very own Kim Sorensen (former LHCC keyboardist and vocalaist). We hadn't
seen her in about 100 years... it was so good to catch up!!!
Guess who did so well on his last check up that he's ... oooh... better not say... I'll let his
immediate family make the announcement. Suffice it to say, in all likelihood, by our next
website update we'll have some exciting news to share about young Mr. Ty! Stay tuned and
don't fall off that cliff we left you hanging on!!!
TITLE IN HAND
It's official, we have the RV title in hand. Next step will be a full detailing of the exterior.
(Shhhush... don't tell anyone, but we will be hitting up our buddy Tom Montanaro to borrow
his pressure washer to speed up the task)! Once the exterior is done we will zero in on the
interior, and once that's done it goes up on the auction block (so to speak)!
