Today we would like to introduce you to Methow Episcopal in Methow Valley, Washington.
Methow Episcopal began as a small gathering of Methow residents hoping to start a progressive liturgical worship in the Methow Valley. The first service was held on Ash Wednesday 2015 in Mazama using ashes from the Methow Trails fire pit. Currently they meet Sundays at 5 PM, and have moved to Winthrop to better accommodate people in Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp, Carlton, and the entire Methow Valley. They are a Bishop’s Chapel of the Diocese of Spokane.
What is your greatest strength as a faith community? Energy, enthusiasm, creativity, initiative—we are a self-created, self-driven, and self-sustaining community.
Finish this sentence “People come here because…” People come here because services are liturgical, the spirit is palpably present, the music is fantastic, we enjoy each other’s company, all are welcome, the services are kept to one hour and because we are a group of people who have come together to celebrate a traditional liturgy in our own quest for spirituality .
