Saint James Presbyterian Church


Message from Jon









In Awe of the Mystery! Happy Easter Season!


            I recently sat at table with Myron Wlaznak, Tim Whiteman, and Joel Langholtz. No food was served, and we were not celebrating the sacrament of Communion, though either or both of these options certainly would have been fitting. Instead, we were sitting at a planning table. Myron is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic, while Tim and Joel are the pastors at Central Lutheran and Our Saviour’s Lutheran, respectively. Each year, I gather with these church leaders to discuss our plans for the ecumenical, Easter sunrise service at 7:00am at Fairhaven Park.
            Bellingham is the northernmost city in the continental United States. Yes. We are more northern than the state of Maine, and actually live at a higher latitude than the majority of the Canadian population! But, Northwesterners are a hearty bunch. And so we gather, in rain or shine, though often in the cold, to celebrate Easter together as a new day is dawning.
            We do this time and again because we stand in awe of the mystery of the resurrection. Whatever your preference, whether it is the crisp sensation of morning, outdoor worship, or the traditional feel of organ pipes and classic architecture, the message remains the same. Christ is risen! Thanks be to God.  


Our Mission Statement
Saint James Presbyterian Church is a beacon on the hill where the people respond to the opportunities that God sets before us. We celebrate our rich past as we continue our journey into the future together. We worship the triune God in our beautiful, traditional sanctuary with music, prayer and learning from the word of God. We joyfully welcome youth and young families into our intergenerational and loving community of faith, nurturing relationships that bridge our differences. We are witnesses to God's presence and the grace of Jesus Christ as we address social justice issues locally and internationally through education and action. We are open and affirming, welcoming all to join us in discipleship.
