Welcome to Wash Park UCC!
A lively community of hope, joy, healing and love.
A Home for Those Seeking...
Rich, creative spiritual
We build a safe and energizing home for exploring spirituality within a broad and inclusive framework.
We embrace and actively support each individual’s spiritual journey.
Profoundly supportive community.
We nurture a deep sense of belonging, with joy and laughter and, in times of need, profound support.
And for nearly a century, we’ve been a lively anchor place for deep cross-generational friendships and shared values.
Social and environmental justice.
Calling out and healing injustice takes many forms, and we are active across the spectrum.
In partnership with others in the wider community, we seek to make change in the world, with our core values of justice, peace, and care for the earth.

Embracing Futures We Cannot Control
SUNDAY Zoom Worship – 10:00 am
As Jesus journeys with his followers to Jerusalem, he begins to prepare them for a future that they had not considered possible. We will think of shaping life in the moments we have within the parameters we cannot control. We do control the choices we make with life as we know it. How and where we invest our time, talent, resources and energy are left to us by God. During this season of Lent, what will we embrace?
You always can check out our past worship services on FACEBOOK.
Remember the Rainbow: What Will We Embrace for Lent?
SUNDAY Zoom Worship Celebration – 10:00 am
Since last we entered the season of Lent, life has been filled with giving up important parts of life as we had lived it. We’ve lost loved ones and friends, work and income, we have given up opportunities to meet in person for meals shared with friends and loved ones and have given up in person gathering for worship. Many other experiences could be added to our individual lists. So this year we will think of what it is we choose to embrace for Lent.
A Note From Lee
Thinking Out Loud
If you need to talk, or schedule a Zoom visit, send me a message.
Grace and Peace,
Network Coffee House
Since 1978 the primary desire has been to create a hub for redemptive relationship by sharing coffee in Capital Hill. Healing begins and ends with relationship.
Due to COVID we have had to adjust our typical program to provide some basic emergency needs for our neighbors. We’ve handed out as many as 500-700 sack lunches a week along with water and of course, coffee.

Black Lives – All Lives Matter?
For several months, our front sign has joined with the widespread movement for racial justice with the statement, “Black Lives Matter.” Recently, chalked comments near our sign have countered with the statement, “All Lives Matter.” (Thank you for using chalk, and not paint!)

Helping Homeless Women
This news clip from local CBS station talks to the efforts that Diana Flahive (the force behind the Women’s Homeless Initiative) is currently leading. They are interviewing Diana on the current effort of WHI for the women being moved from the Coliseum to other locations this week. (These collection efforts were in last week’s email blast from Diana.)
At the Global Climate Strike
At Wash Park we believe social and eco-justice advocacy is better when we do it together.
In this video, our members and friends reflect on what it means to do this work as part of a spiritual community.
