We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to crying newborns, those who are skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, just got out of jail, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, more Methodist than Wesley, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s baptism.
We welcome soccer moms, Seahawk dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.
We welcome you if you’re having problems, if you’re down in the dumps, or in need of a prayer. Whether you had church shoved down your throat as a kid, or if you don’t like “organized religion”.
We’ve been there too.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We welcome those who laughed and those who gasped at this welcome. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts. … and you!

WHAT TO EXPECT
When is worship? We have two in-person worship services each Sunday at 9AM and 11AM and an online worship service that streams at 11AM. Learn more about our worship service here.
What should I wear? It's the Pacific Northwest, so people pretty much wear whatever they feel comfortable in. At all services, you'll see people dressed up, in jeans, workout clothes or even wearing their rain coat.
Child care is available for all who need it, but we recognize that some families might want to keep children with them in church. Children are welcome to stay throughout the service. Baby noises don't bother us! Most of our services have special children’s times with a special message just for children. Ask an usher for help finding our nursery and children's programs.
Differently-abled persons worship regularly at our church. We do our best to accommodate all persons, even when it means some minor disruptions may occur in worship. We are a family, and families accept one another’s differences.
We have a parking lot across the street. Come a couple minutes early to park and make your way inside. You'll be welcomed with a smile and hand shake but we won't make you stand up and introduce yourself! When and if you're ready, introduce yourself to one of the pastors or fill out an insert in the bulletin to receive more info about our community.
Our Church Office is open Sunday - Thursday, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Please enter the office at the north door on Milton Street.
