Uplifting 100 years of making a difference, together

On July 22, 1919, representatives of 62 congregations gathered at Plymouth Church and founded the Seattle Federation of Churches. Join us today in uplifting 100 years of working together as what is now called the Church Council of Greater Seattle, bringing about justice through faith in King and South Snohomish Counties.

The theme for this year is “The Together Difference”—acknowledging and affirming the deep values and commitments that bind us together as The Church Council. Together we gather. Together we vigil. Together we advocate. Together we organize. Together we serve. There are many ways to join in the celebrations!


Community events

  • Annual Assembly took place on Thursday March 28, 2019, at Seattle First Baptist Church. This year, the Assembly took the form of an ecumenical worship with interactive elements in celebration of our 100th year. The usual, formal business was woven into the worship.


  • Our flagship 100th Anniversary Community Celebration will take place at 6 PM on Saturday June 1, 2019 at Plymouth Church in Downtown Seattle. At the church where the Seattle Federation of Churches was first formed, we invite you to join us for an interfaith celebration in the sanctuary and reception to follow. Please note that, in support of the observance of Ramadan, the reception will take place at 9 PM.


  • House Parties will hold space to share stories in person and raise support for the 2nd Century of faithful action. These will take place October – December, 2019 in a home near you.
