Jun 24, 2020


Welcome to Renton Community Church's blog, where we explore the beauty and purpose behind the concept of an 'ugly' church. In a society that often values aesthetics and appearances, it is important to delve deeper and recognize the true meaning and impact of a church on its community. Join us as we delve into the significance of community and faith in today's society.

The Power of Community

At Renton Community Church, we believe in the power of genuine community. Our goal is to create a space where individuals from all walks of life can come together, embracing the diversity and uniqueness that each person brings. We understand that the beauty of a church lies not in its architectural design, but in the people who make up its congregation.

Fostering Connection

Our church strongly believes in fostering meaningful connections. We encourage our members to actively engage with one another, to support and uplift each other through all of life's ups and downs. It is through these genuine relationships that a sense of belonging and purpose is cultivated.

Breaking Barriers

In an 'ugly' church, there are no barriers or exclusions based on appearance or social status. We prioritize inclusivity and acceptance, ensuring that everyone feels welcome and valued within our community. Our focus is on the richness of the human spirit, not superficial appearances.

The Significance of Faith

At Renton Community Church, faith forms the foundation of who we are and how we operate. We believe in the power of faith to transform lives and provide hope in times of uncertainty. Our commitment to nurturing faith is at the core of our mission.

Empowering Spiritual Growth

Through our various programs and gatherings, we strive to empower individuals to deepen their spiritual growth. We offer opportunities for learning, reflection, and worship, providing a supportive environment for individuals to explore and strengthen their faith.

Anchoring in Values

As an 'ugly' church, we are not defined by external appearances, but by our shared values. We believe in practicing love, compassion, and service towards others. Our commitment to these values guides our actions and interactions both within our community and beyond.

The Impact on Society

In a society where appearances often take precedence, an 'ugly' church challenges the status quo and encourages a shift in perspective. By prioritizing community and faith over aesthetics, we seek to create a positive impact on society as a whole.

Building Bridges

A church focused on community and faith has the power to build bridges between various individuals and groups. It breaks down barriers, promotes understanding, and fosters unity. Through our outreach programs and initiatives, we actively work towards creating a more inclusive and harmonious society.

Addressing Real Needs

An 'ugly' church understands that societal issues go beyond superficial appearances. It acknowledges that there are real needs within our communities that require attention and action. We are committed to addressing these needs through our efforts in social justice, community development, and outreach.


Renton Community Church embraces the concept of an 'ugly' church, recognizing the immense beauty and purpose that lies within. We believe that true beauty emanates from the connections we form, the faith we nurture, and the impact we have on society. Join us on this journey as we continue to explore the significance of community and faith in today's world.
