A CHURCH THAT WELCOMES YOU!

We are a living, breathing, growing, welcoming, progressive Christian community
right in the heart of Seattle's Alki beach neighborhood. We believe that faith is a journey, not a destination, and we are blessed to share the journey with each other. We are 90-somethings and 20-somethings, toddlers and infants, and a lot of us somewhere in between. We are single, married and partnered; introverted and outgoing; 
LGBTQ+, cis and hetero ... all are welcome at AlkiUCC! We don't believe Christianity is the only way, but it's the way we've been called to follow, and we are trying to live it with as much integrity and joy as we can.

 We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary,
and where together, we grow a just and peaceful world.

 

"Growing together as disciples of Jesus Christ,
courageously sharing God's love with each other and the world."

— Alki UCC Purpose Statement
                                                                                        
 

From National UCC Racial Justice Minister, Rev Dr Velda Love:
The United Church of Christ stands in solidarity with the creation narrative in Genesis 1:26-27, which clearly outlines what matters to God — all of humankind and a just world for all. God created humankind in God’s image and likeness, women and men are image bearers, sharing equal status as human beings. God did not create race, racism, superior groups of humans, and hierarchical and hegemonic social structures. God does not sanction human suffering including America’s involvement in:

• Inhumane social confinement due to mass incarceration and surveillance of communities of color
• Global confiscation of another culture's land and resources
• Human trafficking and the enslavement and sexual violence and assault against women and children
• Deportation and the separation of families from immigrant communities
• Police brutality and militarized tactics and abuses resulting in the murder of people of color
• Using global armaments and acts of terrorism on innocent civilians domestically and abroad
• Supporting White Christian supremacy over and against non-Christian faith communities

“God has not given us a spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, of courage and resolution,
to meet difficulties and dangers; the spirit of love which will carry us through opposition.” 2 Timothy 1:7
                                          


In Solidarity

Alki UCC stands in solidarity with those protesting police brutality and all forms of racism that have harmed and murdered BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color). Alki UCC calls for the dismantling of systemic racism in our country, and for all of us to personally work on our implicit bias and prejudices. We stand with those who seek systemic change in our country, who boldly envision an equitable world in which justice and peace rain down on all its peoples. We pray for The Kingdom of Heaven to be realized on earth, that all its abundance is indeed available to all; we pray for a society in which we honor, respect and support each other as Children of God, no matter one’s race, sexual orientation, gender, politics, ethnicity or tribe.

Belief in Action

Alki UCC joins West Seattle's Admiral UCC in their leadership of antiracism education. Admiral UCC is offering powerful opportunities for all to learn and grow in antiracist practice, led by Pastor Andrew Conley-Holcom. We invite you to participate in the online West Seattle Anti-Racist Book Club and the documentary film series Telling the Truth about Race.  

Alki UCC and Admiral UCC are predominantly white congregations in predominantly white neighborhoods. We understand that the most important thing we can do is to grow our own antiracist practices and to advocate antiracist thought and action in our community.

We're asking our generous neighbors to bring donations of school supplies and men's casual/work clothing as well as non-perishable food.

Donations of clean, new or used men's casual/work clothing will be distributed through the Westside Interfaith Network's hot lunch program for people experiencing homelessness, The Welcome Table. There is a constant and growing demand for denim apparel, khaki's, hoodies, tee shirts, sweatshirts, clean underwear, socks, shoes and all kinds of outerwear for the fall and winter. Please ... NO dress shirts, sport coats or suits. 
 
A huge shout-out to our larger community for donations of more than $10,000 worth of food and other supplies to the White Center Food Bank through our ongoing drives. All your contributions benefit our vulnerable neighbors in need.
