We’re back to HYBRID Worship!

A splendid performance venue

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.

Upcoming Services

November Worship Services – 10am – Hybrid
Nov. 5th – We will gather to celebrate All Souls Day, a day of honoring and remembering those who have shaped and influenced our lives – here at Washington Park and beyond. We encourage you to think about who it is you wish to remember and celebrate. They may be from our past and those still present with us. The month of November allows us to share our gratitude for Wash Park, those who are saints to us, those who helped us find our voice as a congregation and as individuals in our efforts to do justice, love mercy and to walk humbly.
Nov. 12th – This Sunday we will consider and celebrate just what it means to be a Just Peace and an Open and Affirming Church in our day and for these times. As our nation has grown more violent and the world constantly at war, as the targeting of minorities has become more well known, our voice for justice and our witness for peace have carried our voice into our community and into the streets. Since 1992 we have been Open and Affirming, leading the way for others to follow. And with courage, the church celebrated the marriage of two of our beloved members several years later as we put into actions that which we preached. Wash Park continued to be a leading voice for what it means to be Open and Affirming when we ordained the first transgender minister in the United Church of Christ. 
Nov. 19th – On this Sunday we will focus on Wash Park being a Whole Earth, Creation Justice congregation. With the support of Wash Park, Rev. Peter Sawtell formed Eco-Justice ministries and became a leading voice for Creation Justice in the United Church of Christ, our community and beyond. Over 200 congregations are a part of ongoing efforts to counter the impacts of human caused climate change and to speak for the earth and species who have no voice in decisions made that put so much at risk. This day will be a day of gratitude for all who have been a part of speaking up, talking back, speaking truth to power. We invite you to share those experiences in your life where you shared your voice for justice. Afterward we will celebrate  and give thanks for the Rabble- Rousers among us.
November 26th – On this Sunday we will turn our attention to the future and the possibilities to build on the foundation of Wash Park’s sacred history of witness in our world. Our decision to sell our property is leading other congregations to consider their own next steps. We will give thanks for yet another opportunity to lead others into new ways of caring for a hurting world, doing justice, and following Spirit into new forms of service and ministry.

A Note From Lee

Noted author Melody Beattie writes, “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” I am grateful for you who compose the beloved community at Wash Park. I am grateful for the past we are celebrating, those who lived and shaped that past. I am grateful for a sense of peace and trust that we share in these changing times, and for a vision of our future which we are co-creating together. Happy Thanksgiving, may these be days where the joy of being with friends and family encourages our hearts as we celebrate the lives we share.

Grace and Peace,

Reproductive Justice Resources
Addressing the Dobbs decision
In the wake of the recent devastating Supreme Court ruling taking away the rights of women to make their own decisions about their reproductive health care, it’s really easy to feel enraged, immensely hopeless and helpless, and to wonder what to do next.

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.
