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 of the US--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, July 12 - July 16, 2024.
To find out more or to receive our newsletter, please contact us.

On October 8, 2023, Rev. Chris Bown gave both a worship service for children and adults on “Learning to Handle Our Anger” (video below). Rev. Bown said of the sermon:"The Lord’s commandments are trying to help us to learn to love — to love Him and to love all the other people He has created and loves. We are all in this together. And key for us in our learning and loving others (and to do so from the Lord) is learning to manage our anger so we don’t hurt them.In fact, it is in proportion as we do so. In proportion as we honestly recognize (from the Lord) and (from the Lord) constructively deal with our own personal anger issues (as well as other ways we might harm the lives of others), in proportion that do we actually love others, and even the Lord.We are create to be free and responsible the quality of our lives. Fortunately the Lord is present with us and helps us, in so far as we let Him."
On September 24, 2023, Rev. Chris Bown gave both a worship service for children and adults on “Being Calm Helps Everyone” (video below). Rev. Bown said of the sermon:"The Lord asks us to promote peace in our lives with others — in our families, at work, in society at large. And with His help we can do that. We need to be centered with His life and love and be calm and principled inside. He gives that freely to us, if we seek it — if we are not afraid and don’t back away, and if we take agency with strength and courage. Then we might be like a “calm” eye even in the center of a raging hurricane. The Lord, acting in and through us, can re-establish order and a healthier flow of life, for ourselves and for others."
“Charity is like warmth in springtime or summer that causes grass, plants, and trees to grow. Without charity, or spiritual warmth, nothing grows.”
