2 Years In The Community!

I belong to a very cool church here in Seattle, Union Church, a plant from University Presbyterian Church in the U District. (UPC in turn was originally a plant from Seattle 1st Presbyterian!) We do things a little differently than most churches. On the 1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays, we meet like any other church in worship ("Eternally Connected"). On the 2nd Sunday, we meet, but worship is more focused in small groups & discussions ("Internally Alive"). On the 4th Sundays, we meet together at a home or somewhere in the community ("Externally Focused").

My small group, "Generation to Generation" has been meeting with the wonderful folks at a retirement home in Seattle for 2 years as of last Sunday. We get together and mingle, and sing classic hymns in worship. I finally got around to taking some pics this week!

I think it is great that your church gets out into the community to help. It looks like you are raising their Spirits.

I wish my church got out into the community more. They have been talking about having services in other towns. We are also helping a sister church without a minister, by providing speakers. We do a lot of events in the church that are open to the public, but I would like to see us help in a nursing home or some such place.

Congrats! Good job, Greg!
