WELCOME TO THE CITY OF RAIN CHURCH WEBSITE!
PLEASE READ COVID-19 OUTBREAK NOTIFICATION BELOW.
Join us on our live stream above - Sundays at 11 am PST.
In-person services are postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak
Washington State Governor has signed a "Shelter in Place" order to prevent group meetings.
Because of this, and out of love and consideration to each of you, we will be canceling ALL events and moving ALL of our Sunday church service gatherings to an online platform until the situation with COVID-19 will get better.
Therefore, during the COVID-19 outbreak we strongly emphasize online communication. We conduct Bible study online using Zoom platform. You can watch Sunday services live above, as well as on our YouTube page. After live service is finished, recording will be available on this site for one week.
We love you dearly and are praying for each one of you! We are navigating through this unique season as best as we can and will continue sending updates as news come up.
Please reach out if there’s anything you need: a prayer, or urgent request, anything - we’re here for you, we’re in this together.

A Place of Grace for All Nations
We are building a ministry where all of the hurting, distressed, confused, rich and poor, young and old from the different races and cultures, will come to find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness and encouragement.
As we develop genuine relationships, and serve one another, our works will connect those individuals to God. And as the Spirit of God awakens in each individual blessed by our ministry, a community will begin to grow in which people can see the power of God change and bless their lives, their families, their communities and their world.
"We have received grace and apostleship through Him to bring about the obedience of faith among all the nations, on behalf of His name..." (Romans 1:5 HCSB)
Loving All... Serving All... Growing Together!

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Experiencing Christ together
So, we are another church... why bother, you'll ask? Fair question! Learn for yourself the stories of people who, at some point, were asking the same question. Watch the video.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world.
Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is:
Evangelical, but not exclusive
Biblical, but not doctrinaire
Traditional, but not rigid
Congregational, but not independent
Identity and Biblical Mission
We are united by Christ in a holy covenant of churches empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the great commandments and the great commission: to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to go into all the world and make disciples.
Vision for Mission
to cultivate communities of worship committed to: prayer, preaching, and study of the word; the celebration of the sacraments; and fellowship across gender, race, age, culture, and class.
to equip loving, giving, growing Christians to reach out with the good news of Jesus Christ – evangelizing the lost, ministering to those in need, and seeking justice for the oppressed.
HOW WE HELP
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
One of our goals is to ensure that the most vulnerable and at-risk groups in the greater Seattle area are safe and have their basic needs taken care of. With your ministry and volunteering efforts, you have the capacity to help us in our endeavour of Lifting Up every member of our community. Contact us to learn more.
One of the main reasons City of Rain Church was founded in 2009 was to Build strong relationship with the community.
