Cascadia New Church

Welcome to Cascadia New Church

Cascadia New Church invites you to connect with us for monthly Sunday worship and small group meetings throughout the year as a way to deepen our understanding and enrich our practice of loving the Lord our God and loving our neighbors. Although we are spread throughout the Pacific Northwest region--in Washington and Oregon states and the southern part of British Colombia--we are connected by a faith that is deeply spiritual and yet practical in daily living. 

We meet virtually via Zoom and with in-person gatherings in Vancouver, B.C., Seattle, WA, and Portland, OR. We hope you join us for worship and connection. We are looking forward to gathering in person for an all-region retreat this summer, July 29 - August 2, 2023.

Upcoming Worship Service

Our next service will be a worship service on Sunday, June 4th at 11 am with Rev. Jim Cooper, in-person at Vancouver B.C. and virtual: Zoom Link

Rev. Cooper said of the service:

"Our service on June 4 in Vancouver will be in preparation for New Church Day on June 19. The Children's Talk is about the child with the rod of iron as described in Revelation chapter 12. This is a picture of how we can begin to fight the dragon that threatens our spiritual life. The Sermon builds on this theme, describing what the dragon of Revelation looks like in today's world, and what we can do to protect ourselves from it's influence."

Most Recent Virtual Worship Service

On May 14, 2023, Rev. Christopher Bown gave both a worship service for children and adults on “Choosing to Love” (video below). Rev. Bown said of the sermon:

"Sermon for Children - Knowing Good and Doing Good. Is it more important to say the right thing or to do the right thing? What happens when you don't follow through on what we say, and how can we fix it?Sermon for Adults - Loving Others: A User's Manual. The Word gives us so many descriptions and examples of love, but in the moment it can be hard to figure out the best way to love others. Maybe our emotions or egos get in the way. Maybe we just don't know how best to help or show that we care. What tools from the Lord can we hang onto when the best path to love isn't clear?""

Upcoming Small Group Program

Rise Above It 

(Date to be decided. Please let us know if you are interested.)

This ten (10) week small group program in practical spirituality uses the Ten Commandments as a framework for universal spiritual principles. This program demonstrates how spiritual practice is the core of every major religion—regardless of differences in doctrine or ritual. Participates will not only learn how the commandments occur in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, they will also have the opportunity to practice these spiritual principles in their own lives—especially in regard to the college experience. In this course, “rise above it” refers to rising into higher states of consciousness through practicing universal spiritual principles. 

This small group session will use the updated "Rise Above It" book created in 2018 targeting college students. Although the book's cover says it is for college students, people of all ages/walks of life should find it compelling. For those who've done the original "Rise Above It" small group program, you will find new stories and concepts in this revised version.

The "Rise Above It" will be forming in the future. If you have questions about the program or would like to join a small group, please contact us.

“Charity is like warmth in springtime or summer that causes grass, plants, and trees to grow. Without charity, or spiritual warmth, nothing grows.”
