Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Gathering

We sustain a crossroad for unity and understanding within Christianity and with other faiths. We connect these groups through a community commons of event and virtual spaces: vigils, concerts, emailed news and action alerts.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We produce and co-sponsor activities that strengthen faith communities for spiritual vitality and public service. During 2016, we will produce several conferences, offer workshops on our focus issues, organize civil dialogue programs, and co-sponsor presentations by leading theologians and activists.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We engage, educate, and activate congregations to work for justice with marginalized people. During 2016, our focal issues will be:
1) housing & homelessness,
2) living wage & economic justice,
3) immigrant accompaniment & advocacy,
4) we are bringing a lens of racial equity to all our work.

The Church Council continues its venerable history as a mediating force, encouraging municipalities to support tent encampments, asking Seattle to enact affordable housing policies, and convening tables of conversation across race and faith. We proudly host the Youth Chaplaincy Coalition, which brings faith mentors and communities to walk with youth affected by incarceration.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Youth Chaplaincy Coalition is a group of like-minded individuals and community members that seek to provide services to youth in Detention Centers.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.


The Church Council of Greater Seattle convenes and catalyzes communities and people of faith to bring our spiritual commitments of love and reconciliation, peace and justice into the public square.
We aspire together to weave a world of justice through right and equitable relationships with one another. As people of faith, we uphold the values of mutual interdependence and accompaniment. These are rooted in our belief in the dignity of every human being as a child of God, the communion that we share through our unity with one another, and the solidarity that breaks down barriers that label some as “Other.” We are convinced, instead, that there is a “We” within in which we are all called to participate.
