Celebration -- Valley & Mountain

Valley & Mountain is a new spiritual community/church in the Rainier Valley. Our mission is to build a radically hospitable community, rooted in grace, that practices deep listening and creative liberation. We celebrate the diversity of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, primary language, and spiritual identity in our community and our neighborhood and strive to create an inclusive environment.

Join Valley & Mountain for our next Celebration on Sunday, December 18 4-5:30 in the Columbia School building, 3651 S Edmunds St.

Columbia City Mural Project

Community Arts Create (CAC), in alliance with Urban Artworks, is organizing and spearheading a collaborative art installation.

The project is simple: a consortium of organizations partner with our featured artist to create individual panels to be joined together in a larger mural. Artist Emily Taibleson will provide the overall design while the organizations provide the content, each participating in a "Conception Workshop", collecting visual images, stories and memories to help sketch the final product.

pediatric practice in Rainier Valley


The Urban Impact Health Center is considering opening a non-profit pediatric practice in the Rainier Valley in the fall of 2012. I'm a pediatrician living in Columbia City and have been involved with the formation of this clinic for the past 2 years. We're soliciting parent feedback to best understand the need for pediatrics in our community. Please consider taking 10 minutes to complete our Interest Survey.

Thank You!
