No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here at University Congregational United Church of Christ. Young, old, sure of your path, or still searching — we invite you to join us in imagining love and justice – as Jesus did – and acting to change the world. We strive to walk in the path of Jesus, and to offer an authentic welcome to everyone who walks through our door. We invite visitors to wear a name-tag from the pew register folder so we may more easily greet you by name.

Our worship service starts at 10 am and includes hymns, prayers, scripture reading and a sermon. It usually lasts about an hour and 15 minutes. More information here.

Children are an important part of our community, and are welcome for all or part or the service. You will be met at the door with a warm handshake and welcome, and our friendly greeters can help direct you and answer your questions.

Wear clothes that you are comfortable in and sit on the main floor or in the balcony - wherever you feel most at ease. We look forward to welcoming you.

Parking can be a challenge in the University District! Persistence, patience and an early start are keys to success.

UW has free parking on Sundays. Enter the main campus gate at NE 45th and 17th Ave NE and turn left past the toll booth. It's about a three-block walk to the church. The UW Meany Garage at 15th Ave. NE and NE 41st St. is a five-block walk.

The church also owns three parking lots - Lot A is across the street from the church on 16th Ave. E. Lot B is beneath Sortun Court, just north of the church on the east side of 16th Ave. E. (It closes at 2 p.m.) Lot C (for those with difficulty walking, young children and visitors) is at the corner of 15th NE and NE 45th St., next to the church.

If you need to be assured of a close parking spot, you can call the church office before noon on Friday to reserve one: 206-524-2322.

We offer a complimentary "inquirers Lunch" on the second Sunday of the month for people interested in learning more about us. It is an informal session over soup, salad and dessert where you can meet others who may be on a similar spiritual journey and learn how to plug into this church community from long-term members and clergy.

We'll explore topics from history, to theology, to membership. To RSVP, or let us know about special needs (Including childcare or food sensitivities) email us at gro.ccuytisrevinu@sreriuqni or call 206-979-7539.

Junior high and high school youth meet at 9 am and then often sit together in worship. Give us a call at 206-524-2322 for more specifics.

Our church has always been one that acts with courage and takes big risks for the sake of something good. As we have recounted over these past few weeks, we have consistently taken risks for justice, from supporting refugees to becoming open and affirming, from Nickelsville to becoming a racial justice church. Every day in our church people from our congregation and the wider community work to improve the lives of those around us through preschool programs, drop-in daycare, high school programs, food packing, and many more activities that the four walls of our building make possible. And over the years generations of our fore-bearers have given generously to build our building, fund our endowments, clothe, feed and house those in need, and to help others, locally and globally.

Do you sometimes feel helpless in our hurting world?
Do you want to make a change today and leave a legacy of helping others?

Pledging to the Church is one of the ways that each of us can make a difference in our community and beyond. Our pledges make all of this good work possible and are one of the many ways in which we work to bring forth God’s vision of justice, peace, and everlasting love to our world. Please join us in pledging to the church and keep in mind the following dates:

  • November 3, 2019: Pledge Dedication Sunday
  • November 10, 2019: Good Works!  – 11:30 am in Ostrander Hall
