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.

Seabeck Committee Co-Chair with Jessie McAbee

Nearly 200 people from our church have just returned from experiencing the special community we create every year for the week of our All-Church Family Camp at the Seabeck Conference Center. As a teacher in the elementary kids program, I am treasuring the memories of their enthusiastic singing ? saying yes to Betsy Rose to learn new songs AND to share them with the grownups ? and also their confident sharing (with the microphone in front of the adults!) of the things they felt they were learning.

I also loved watching the 17 littlest kids (ages 0-3) be held by the bigger kids and encouraged to grow in independence. I’m in awe of the program preparation, teacher recruiting, and physical space logistics that Betsy Herring pulled off to make the program successful for the 60 kids ages 10 and younger. I heard many positive comments about our speaker Dr. Ali Mian from those who spent time with him in the adult program, and I experienced his skillful sharing with the first and second graders about praying. I even heard that Ali and his family would like to come back again to breathe the amazing fresh air at Seabeck!

Seabeck 2020

Please save the date on your calendar for next year: July 5-10, 2020 (with registration starting in mid-March). Our theme will touch on joyful frugality and things related to our sacred earth. We will (of course!) have more specifics as we get closer to camp next year.

And one last thing:

If you feel moved to support this special experience, please consider making a donation to support our scholarships. We want to make it possible for everyone to attend our Seabeck camp regardless of financial concerns. You can make a donation in any of the usual church ways, just mark that it’s for Seabeck scholarships. Thank you!
