Each meeting of the Washington State Senate begins with an opening prayer, which was offered on Monday by Pastor Casey Treat of the Federal Way-based Christian Faith Center. Treat visited the Capitol as a guest of Sen. Joe Fain, who represents Auburn, Kent and Covington.
“Thousands of worshipers from all over South King County and across our state join Pastor Treat each weekend to hear the good word,” said Fain. “We are blessed to have him and his wife serving our community.”
“One of the great things about the Senate is the ability to have a moment of reflection before we begin our work. The message from a variety of faiths and backgrounds all centers on doing our best work for Washington residents. It was an honor to have Pastor Treat open our session with a prayer.”
Treat and his wife Wendy founded CFC in 1980, which has since grown to include campuses in Mill Creek and Gig Harbor.
