Fourth Sundays provide a way for us to come alongside our neighbors in South Lake Union and beyond.
Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and earth were created, things visible and invisible...and in him all things hold together." Colossians 1:15
At the heart of God is imagination! Who could have imagined that the image of the invisible God would be Jesus of Nazareth who walked this earth proclaiming good news to the poor and hope to the afflicted and purpose to all people who, he reminded, are image-bearers of the God of Creation.
Our fourth Sundays, worship in action, are an invitation to live and worship with imagination and hope. We invite you to step into our Fourth Sundays with imagination and attentiveness to what is "otherwise" in our world. Let us pray together that we will have eyes to see God at work and be bold to participate in our world, affirming that Jesus Christ holds all thing together. And, share with us what you are discovering about our imaginative, creative, restorative God!
Below are some opportunities for this month. Meet at 415 Westlake Ave N at 10 AM unless time or location is specified otherwise. Events typically wrap up at 11:20 am. Questions? Email Renee

Create Your Own 4th Sunday Action
Some folks like to take 4th Sunday to develop connections with brothers and sisters by attending another church in their own neighborhood, gathering others to share a meal, or helping a neighbor in community. What is a way that you feel nudged to express God's love and acceptance, and to seek the "welfare of the community"?
