Through campus ministry, we invite college students from all denominations, backgrounds, ethnicities, and sexualities to join us as we strive to walk together on a spiritual path that brings us closer to God. Our words and worship draw from the most ancient hearts of Christianity, while at the same time they are renewed by our modern minds. We believe that church should not be a place where you leave your questions at the door. Instead, bring your doubts, your fears, your hopes, your joys – bring everything God has made you to be.
Campus Ministries meet regularly at two colleges in the Diocese of Olympia: the University of Washington, Seattle and Western Washington University, Bellingham, offering a network of support for college students.
University of Washington
The Sanctuary at UW meets on Wednesday evenings for dinner and conversation. The evening ends with a Compline service at Christ Church, Seattle. All are welcome at one or both events.
We are a community of people living in and around the University of Washington working together to figure out how to live in better relationship with God, one another and creation. We’re just trying to figure out how to navigate life with love and integrity and to keep our hope for the future intact. Together, we worship, play, pray, dance, do yoga, hike, eat, meditate, make art, and much more. We are a Q Center Safe Zone and a Reconciling In Christ ministry (a designation given to ELCA ministries who are supportive of the LGBTQ+ community). We engage in interfaith conversation and relationship. We do our best to live out the radical, gracious love of God in Jesus Christ.
Western Washington University
EPIC is a campus club and a ministry of the Episcopal Church among the students of Western Washington University (WWU). We are an extension of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Bellingham. We also welcome students from Whatcom Community College, Bellingham Technical College, and Northwest Indian College.
EPIC students have shown themselves to be curious, engaged, and increasingly comfortable with the kind of ambiguity that can foster spiritual growth. We always look forward to meeting new students and invite you to join us. Find: more information here.
