University Ministries and the Center for Worship
Welcome to University Ministries and the Center for Worship! Along with our ministry partners, we offer a wide variety of opportunities for worship and discipleship at Seattle Pacific. You can explore each ministry by clicking the links above. In each of these programs, our goal is to better learn who we are and how we fit into the great story of redemption that God is writing in the world.

FM1 - Sundays at 5pm
This year we're pleased to continue our partnership with First Free Methodist Church for a weekly Sunday night meal and worship service. You are invited to the church “right across the street” for multi-generational and multi-ethnic worship, relevant biblical teaching, and a family-style meal (yes, free food) with other SPU students and FFMC families. Worship and Word will take place from 5-6pm, followed by dinner from 6-7pm. Please join us at FM1.
Our Guiding Vision:
"The Kingdom of God" is both our message and our way of life.
When Jesus began his public ministry, he traveled from town to town with these words: “Repent, for the kingdom of God has come near!” Along with this proclamation of good news, he also acted on this reality with signs of reconciliation and healing. As it was for Jesus, the biblical vision of God’s kingdom is the foundation of our hope and action.
As God’s people today, we’re waiting for the fulfillment of God’s promise to redeem this creation and bring the kingdom to this place. Throughout our scriptures, we are urged to watch for the coming Day of the Lord – a day when evil itself will be judged, and life will be vindicated and established forever. What is broken will be made right.
Even as we wait for this coming redemption, we celebrate the incredible good news (gospel) that God’s kingdom has arrived in the world, seen most clearly in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. He is the first-born of God’s new creation. The same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead now lives and moves in us, making it possible for us to live for the blessing of the world.
As the Church today, our mission is to make God’s kingdom visible on earth, living out this message of radical love, justice, and community for all people. This is what it means to live the gospel – and it’s truly good news for our lives, families, communities, and world.
