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.

We are an inter-generational church and strive to be family-friendly, with an active ministry for children and youth. All ages are welcome in worship. 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.

Hearing Impaired: Our sanctuary has an induction loop system that uses the T-Coil mode of your hearing aids. You can get the necessary equipment just before entering the Sanctuary on the right or ask any usher.

Visually Impaired: We offer each Sunday's program in large print for easier readability.

Wheelchair Access: The front entry is wheelchair accessible as are the rest rooms. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance.

Get ready for our first online Seabeck All-Church Summer Camp!

In this time of pandemic and protesting, The Seabeck Planning Committee is moving forward with plans to hold our annual all-church camp. Adjusting to the realities of social distancing, there will be many changes, but we are holding true to the spirit – a time of connection, learning, and relaxing.

It will be good to gather for deep conversation and connection, even while missing our time together at Seabeck Conference Center. We will hold the usual morning programs, and have ideas and opportunities to connect and have some of those deeper discussions we often have at camp.

The dates will be as originally planned from July 6 to July 10, 2020. Registration will be done through the church website beginning on Thursday, June 11, and the cost will be minimal. Just like always, there will be a morning program for each age grouping (adults, youth, and preschool/elementary) and then a selection of favorite activities at other points in the day. The adults and youth will meet from 11am to 1:30pm, including a break in the middle for lunch. The younger children will begin at 9:00am with singing and morning welcome then have guided activities lasting until 10:30am for older elementary class.

Professor David Roon (and yes, that’s Amy’s brother!) will offer the adult program topics beginning with Reconciliation Ecology, Creation Care and how that differs from other forms of ecology, Environmental Racism and Environmental Justice, and closing with Practical Responses at the personal, community and national levels. We do expect to have our traditional Wednesday workshop format and time in the afternoons for Talk Back.

When you register for camp, you’ll get the Zoom/etc. links needed to participate and a packet of helpful materials, plus anything else we can think of to send you to add to the fun.

We also encourage you to consider making a donation to the Seabeck Conference Center, (considering how much you are saving on lodging this year!)

So…..dust off those jokes for Sunnyside campfire, warm up your voice for singing along with Betsy Rose (yes! she’ll be with us too), get your brain cells ready for some learning, and encourage your family and friends (and neighbors) to join us.

We will update this post with the link to the registration form when it goes live.
