We are a joyful and growing faith community of open and affirming Christians from all backgrounds aged zero to ninety worshiping in the Episcopal tradition. All seekers are welcome any time.

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. We are thrilled to be celebrating our third anniversary at the beginning of Lent, and moving into our fourth year!

Today, we continue to meet Sundays at 5 PM, and have moved to Winthrop to better accommodate people in Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp, Carlton, and the entire Methow Valley. We are a Bishop's Chapel of the Diocese of Spokane. Read a recent article in The Fig Tree about our fellowship here.

“Through the incarnation God descended into nature in order to super-animate and take it back to him.”- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. 20"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."

-- Matthew 18:20

"Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion looks out on the world, yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now." 

Teresa of Avila.
