The traditional practice of “calling” a pastor affirms the active presence of God’s Spirit in the search process. As we move through this sacred process you can find updates here.
Worship with Us
We proclaim Jesus alive in two worship services. At 9:00 am, we gather in the Chapel for an informal, contemporary service with a fewer hymns and more innovative worship elements. At 10:30 am, we gather in the Sanctuary for what has been called a more traditional worship experience.
Welcoming and Respectful of All
We are open, affirming, welcoming, inclusive and respectful of all who wish to join us. We use inclusive language in our worship services, offer gluten-free communion, and strive to live our welcoming statement: “No Matter Who You Are, Or Where You Are on Life’s Journey, You Are Welcome Here!” Join Us!
Spiritual Formation for Children
When we say all are welcome at The United Churches of Olympia, we mean kids, too. Because we consider children to be part of our church family, they’re always welcome to stay for worship. Child care is available for children under 5 and Sunday School for ages 5 – 12 is available at 10:30.
I came to TUCO looking for a Sunday school for my daughter that was spiritually centered yet open-minded. I found that, and to my pleasant surprise discovered that I love adult Sunday school too! I've joined a community of intelligent, progressive questioners who are seeking ways to apply Christ's teachings to their everyday lives. Services are uplifting and sincere. I love it! –Liz
We have been long time members, and appreciate the social justice focus and actions of this church. The wide variety of music allows plenty of opportunity for expression. –Pat and Walt
I truly appreciate this church's generosity and social commitment to making our community and world a better place. The concern, care, and compassion for others and all of God's creation is incredible. In so many ways, I think our church exemplifies what is meant by "Jesus Christ Alive!" –John
The people at TUCO are cut from the same cloth, one woven of gracious inclusion and feet-on-the-ground action. We’re grateful to be part of this vibrant, thoughtful congregation, and, as one of a growing number of families with young children, that the faith experience for children and youth is so highly valued. –Jenni
