The INN is a college-age community, open to everyone, as we invite and encourage people to become followers of Jesus. The INN is a great place to ask questions, investigate spirituality, connect with other people, and have a lot of fun along the way.
As a mission of First Presbyterian Church, the INN has been serving college students in Bellingham since 1974. The INN is also an Associated Students Club of Western Washington University.
There are exciting things ahead at the INN as we begin a new chapter in our ministry. Meet our incoming staff, new director, and find out was to get involved now as we look ahead to the work God is doing at the INN.

The INN meets as a large group on Tuesday nights at 9pm at First Presbyterian Church (1031 N. Garden). These gatherings are come-as-you-are and open to everyone. There is plenty of music, food for spiritual thought, and lots of opportunities for getting to know other people. We'd love to have you join us!
This Fall, we're looking at the person of Jesus Christ, asking "Who is Jesus?" and answering that question by looking at "I am " statements made by Jesus, recorded in the book of John.
For follow-up and insights into our Tuesday Nights, check out our Tumblr blog: the INN [aftermath].
A "Small Group" is a group of people who gather regularly in homes to study the Bible and live life together. Small groups are a great way to make new friends while exploring questions of faith and God and sharing life together throughout the year. Our groups typically meet once a week and are a great place to start getting connected at the INN.
We have a few different types of small groups:
Brother/Sister Groups (same gender groups)
the Co-Ed group
Senior/Grad Student Bible Studies

Every year over the Western Washington University Spring Break, the INN leads mission trips to a variety of destinations across North America to serve. Students take a week to immerse themselves in a different place, serving others on the streets, in different ministry settings, building houses, or caring for children. These trips can be an incredibly significant experience for students, challenging them to look outside themselves and love others as Christ loves.
The 2012-13 school year marks a new chapter in the life of the INN as we welcome new INN Director Jon Epps to staff. As well, we welcome back our Senior Staff, Lindsay Anderson, Willow Weston, and Seth Thomas, as well as 4 fantastic INNterns. We have lots of amazing things planned for this upcoming year, so stay tuned.
Hear from the staff on our Vision for the new year.
