Welcome ...

to the Episcopal Church in Western Washington.

We are over 31,000 people in more than 100 churches. We are building strong communities of faith. We are striving to be good stewards of all our resources: our time, our talents, our treasures and our Earth. We are deepening our relationships with youth and young adults, and with others: in the Holy Land, Latin America and all around the world.

We are inclusive. We are growing and learning. We are stewards. We are evangelists. We are on mission. We are the church in the world.

We are glad you're here. The Episcopal Church welcomes you!
