Bittner-Tony-Cathy-SquareIn the same county as Seattle, Skykomish is different in many ways. As of 2013, Seattle had a population of 652,405 and a metropolitan population of 3.4 million people; Skykomish was at 205, with a total of about 600 individuals in the extended area. Seattle: 100% urban – Skykomish: 100% rural. Seattle is on the Puget Sound; Skykomish is in the mountains. The median age in Seattle is at 36.1 years, compared to 51.3 years in Skykomish. The median household income in Seattle was $64,473 in 2012 (an increase of 41% over 12 years). In Skykomish it was $28,254 (a decrease of 38% over 12 years). Seattle has multiple sports stadiums and arenas; Skykomish has a town ball park with one backstop. Seattle has over 1,000 church listings at www.superpages.com; Skykomish has one church. We do have an active food pantry that serves about 60-70 individuals each week, and free train rides on weekends in the summer months. Although the people of the area are few, the needs are many. Pray that Skykomish Community Church will be able to be a light and an encouragement, and that people will be drawn to Christ Jesus through the visible testimony of this small congregation.
