About Blaine Memorial UMC

Blaine Memorial United Methodist Church is a vibrant and growing faith community located in the multicultural Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle. All are welcome in our multi-ethnic, multigenerational faith community.

Our calling and mission is the Great Commandment: to Love God and Love our Neighbors. We practice these spiritual disciplines by living into our church creed:

  • Go forth in faith
  • Be Strong in Hope
  • Serve with Love

Come and learn more about us through our mission!

All are welcome here!

Our core belief is that each person is a beloved child of God — whose giftedness we value and whose presence and participation are a blessing to our community, and to the Kin-dom of God in the world. Blaine Memorial UMC celebrates God’s gift of diversity and values the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more.

We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
