We are connecting with Bellingham. This involves pursuing our values in creative ways. On a regular basis, we gather together to engage in relationship with one another, with God, and with Bellingham. We also align with local non-profits to do volunteer and conservation work, offer worship that is rooted in our region and its concerns, and provide a variety of seasonal and special events.

One of our primary objectives is to [RE]define church. That is, we don't want a building to become our concern. Instead, the community of Bellingham is our concern. How can we be better citizens and promote the well-being of all life? How can this be a major emphasis of "church"? How can we get to know God and each other, learn and follow the ways of Jesus, and positively contribute to our local community? These are the questions that drive much of what we do.

Echoes is exploring a monthly rhythm of unique Monday worship experiences:

  • Indoor Church: silence, scripture, song and snacks!
