Established in 1884, St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a vibrant, Christian community that looks to the past for wisdom, and to the future for hope.
We are committed to strengthening our faith and supporting each other on our spiritual journeys. We use our gifts and talents to follow Christ's teachings.
We are a welcoming mix of Christians with diverse accomplishments, backgrounds and opinions. We worship. We celebrate. We question. We listen. We study. We pray.
We serve. Please join us!
Peace and joy be with you,
Rector, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Bellingham,Washington

"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."
