Some contribute financially for shared space; others use space for free or provide free services to St. Paul’s, such as harpsicord tuning or advertising in community newsletters. We are blessed to have such a beautiful facility and volunteers to help manage and oversee the use and stewardship of the building at St. Paul’s.
This year we welcome back Classical Conversations (a Christian home school association) on Monday during the day, and Our TreeHouse on Monday and Tuesday nights (Our TreeHouse provides resources and support to children, teens, and their families who are grieving a death. They have two support groups: one for families and one for teens.) Our TreeHouse will also share office space in Room 203 Mondays and Thursdays.
They join Maple Alley Café, which serves breakfast on Tuesday mornings in the Old Parish Hall to those who are hungry and homeless in our community.
In addition, we will welcome Whatcom Learning Lab (which offers tutoring assistance for dyslexic and reading challenged learners) on Monday and Wednesday afternoons in the OPH.
Other nonprofits using space at St. Paul’s include:
Bellingham Chamber Chorale
- Columbia Neighborhood Association
- Oldtimers AA
- Salish Sea Early Music Festival
- Whatcom Chorale
- Community Resource Network
- Maple Alley Inn/The Opportunity Council
- WhatKnots Quilting Group
- 4th Corner Rug Hookers
- NW Church Librarians
- Bellingham Friends
- Girl Scouts
- Peace Corps
- Faith Community Nursing/Parish Nursing Program.
In addition to sharing space, we often share announcements, volunteer opportunities, and opportunities to support these and other nonprofit community partners, such as Interfaith Coalition on this website.
We hope these nonprofits will have your prayers and support as they start up this fall, especially those we are fortunate to host at St. Paul’s.
