Since it’s incorporation in 1904, Blaine Memorial United Methodist Church, then known as the Seattle Japanese Methodist Episcopal Church, has served the greater Japanese American population of the Puget Sound region.
Our Issei founders intended Blaine Memorial to be a place in which God would be glorified in a culturally relevant community and setting. In the years that followed, the membership at Blaine Memorial has evolved along with the Japanese American community and now reflects the multi-Asian and multi-ethnic character of our present day community.
We continue, however with the same purpose as our founders, to provide a place people can come and worship God in culturally relevant ways. We are thankful for this legacy handed down to us and pray that we might honor and glorify God in all that we do.
Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn. Isaiah 51:1
