Here’s what will happen: - Someone will come up to welcome you and make some announcements about what’s going on at the cathedral. - The band will play a couple of songs. Feel free to sing along or sit quietly (however you feel comfortable). - A pastor will speak briefly about something relevant to your life based on the Bible’s teaching - Participate in communion or head out, it’s up to you Pick up your gift: Drop off your “connection card” (inside the bulletin) at the Welcome Center on your way out to pick-up your free gift. The Welcome Center for the 11 am service is located downstairs in the foyer of the recreation center. Still have questions? We are happy to help: (425) 869-5433

Pastor Timothy White

Pastor Timothy White
Senior Pastor

Washington Cathedral’s story began thirty years ago when Tim White and his wife Jackie moved from Eastern Washington to what was then (and remains) one of the most un-churched areas of the United States: the eastside of Seattle, Washington. Pastor Tim came from a tightly-knit community, he was a third-generation pastor, and he dreamed of building a church that had a small-town feel, where people knew your name and you could just be yourself, without pretense or pressure. Just as importantly, he dreamed of a place where everyone felt accepted right when they walked in the door. The church began small, meeting in Pastor Tim’s home. People far from God drew near, and soon larger venues were needed as more and more people came to hear Pastor Tim’s uplifting message about Jesus that was such an encouragement to them. Years later, God provided a way for Washington Cathedral to purchase and build on the rolling hills of the Sammamish Valley. This came as a challenge and an opportunity. The space was large and the surrounding community becoming more diverse. This brought on a creative idea. Why not open our doors and partner with other missionary-pastors called to serve the many sub-cultures of this community? Why not share our resources so that God can reach more people? Today in addition to our diverse general congregations, pastors attend to people in their own language in our bilingual Spanish Congregation (Esperanza), Korean church, First Nations (Native American) and Brazilian (Videra) church. Together with these congregations we share programing, events, and worship in a beautiful mosaic of God’s diversity. It is a lovely, sometimes messy, “meta” expression of church: beyond a traditional American Christian gathering.

What Members Say Add your voice

  • Had wanted to find a church that gave back to the community, did something real in this world to show what Jesus taught and how he wants us to live and reach people for him. I found this at Washington Cathedral. Loving people, caring supportive groups to be part of and good, solid teaching from God's word.
