Established in 1884, St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a vibrant, growing community that looks to the past for wisdom, and to the future for hope.
We are committed to strengthening our faith, supporting each other in our spiritual journeys and using our gifts and talents to serve others following Christ's teachings.
We are a welcoming mix of Christians with diverse talents, backgrounds and opinions.
We worship. We celebrate. We question. We listen. We study. We pray.
Please join us!
Peace and joy be with you,
Rector, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Bellingham,Washington
Award to St. Paul’s: Opportunity Council gave St. Paul’s Church their Community Partnership Award at a ceremony last week. The award was in recognition of our partnership with them in Maple Alley Café. Ann Poulson of Maple Alley lauds St. Paul’s for providing all the food for their effort on Tuesday, and for the excellent group of volunteers from St. Paul’s who make things go. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for your generous Easter Offering! St. Paul's donated $5,189 to help the homeless here in Bellingham. Half went to the local branch of Habitat for Humanity and half to Interfaith Coalition
As Jesus said to the apostles:
"As you did it to one of the least of these, my brethren, you did it to me."

"St. Paul’s is a community of generosity — giving time to one another, sharing the Eucharist with all who come, meeting the needs of those we encounter. We try to love, as Christ loves us."
"I appreciate all the choices for Faith Formation and for the variety of programs to encourage community participation in the church, in greater Bellingham, and in the world."
"I love the music and the service and the many chances to serve."
"I have come to St. Paul’s in grief, in need, in turmoil, and in joy. I have never left without a sense of great comfort and caring"
Music. Flowers. Eucharist. Prayer book. Liturgy. People. Children. Concern. People who serve each other and their neighbor both near and far. Confession. Education.
"St. Paul’s is where I feel spiritually connected. I practice the communion of saints. I love the congregation, the prayers, and the MUSIC. I am nurtured here."
"Worship at St. Paul’s is my “fuel”—the sermon, music, the total ambiance."
