Worship in Action Opportunities

JESUS INVITES US TO LIVE OUTWARDLY FOCUSED, “AS YOU HAVE SENT ME INTO THE WORLD, SO I HAVE SENT THEM INTO THE WORLD” (JOHN 17:18).

Fourth Sundays provide a way for us to spend time in acts of mercy and justice with neighbors in South Lake Union and beyond. We are always dreaming of more ways of connection and if you have ideas, please share them with us: reneen@upc.org.  

Meet at 415 Westlake Ave N at 10 a.m. unless time or location specified. We will gather first for a short meditation before we serve together.
