Grounded in faith.
Working for justice.

Working for peace and justice in our fractured world can be a hard and lonely road.

But as we come together in unity, across congregations and organizations, the way opens up. As we support each other and seek answers together, we find understanding and courage, by the grace of God.

The Church Council of Greater Seattle strengthens the Christian community on this path… by seeking common ground, fostering interdependence and giving voice to the way of Jesus in the public square.
