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.

UCUCC Parking Map

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.

We also offer nursery and child-care, Younger children begin the service with us and usually leave after about 15 minutes. Older children have the option of leaving for a special sermon time. 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.

Let’s ART Party and Sale, February 17, 11:30 – 1:30 pm, Ostrander Hall

Come join the fun as we celebrate the C/creator within all of us at the first ever Let’s ART Party and Sale. Every one of us has a creative thread woven into our beings. How do you make art?

On February 17, we get to enjoy the art of a good party among good friends all for a good cause.  All money raised from the sale of art will go to the UCUCC Liturgical Arts Endowment which underwrites programs that seek to nurture inter-generational, community, and liturgical engagement through visual arts (banners, sculptures, stoles and other fabric arts), written word and dance.

At the Let’s ART Party and Sale you will find art on loan for display for all to enjoy, original art (created by the donor) donated for sale, and re/cycled art (collected by the donor who is ready to it pass along), also for sale.

Haven’t made your donation yet?

Donated and display items are being accepted through February 3 with drop off before and after service January 27 and February 3.  Donation forms are available in the office, at a table in the Turner Commons, in the office, or >> here.

Can’t make the party or don’t need another piece of art in your home? Consider making a donation to support Liturgical Arts Endowment at the Give Now link online (scroll down to find Liturgical Arts).

Throughout January and early February, creative members among us have presented workshops on how art and creativity are a part of their life of faith, and the Red Wall has displayed images of members in creative pursuits.
Thank you to our workshop presenters Tom Furin, Jeaneane Hill, Nancy Wiesner, Mary Paananen, George Vestal and Christy McDanold, and to all who sent in pictures of yourself creating art. What a joy it’s been to see such creativity!

These events have been created by the Friends of Liturgical Arts (FoLAs)– an impromptu group of art and UCUCC lovers who came together to work on this project.

You can be a FoLA too!  Simply Make Art, Support Art, and Party Art more often!  For more information on being a FoLA, to donate art, or to help with the party, contact Roberta Hollowell, moc.nsm@sllewolloh
