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.

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.

Rescheduled for March 3, Stepping Stones

Due to the snow cancellation, our dramatized retelling of the storybook, Stepping Stones, is rescheduled for March 3. There will be no dismissal of elementary children for Special Sermon Time that day, so that the children may stay and see the production.  Preschool Sunday School classes will occur as usual, but parents of preschoolers will have the option of keeping their child in service if it seems like they would enjoy the production.

Mar 24, Food Packing Service Project

First floor hallway, after Worship

Bring the kids to pack grocery bags with nonperishable foods for the hungry. This is a fun, easy way to involve the whole family in serving others. It’s suitable for young preschoolers and older, and it lasts about 30 minutes. It’s easy and satisfying to young hands and minds: There is an easy-to-follow list of grocery items, along with stocked shelves and empty grocery bags. Little ones can look at the list, pull those items off the shelf and put them in a bag. It’s a really great introduction to both the topic, and the act, of service.
