Seattle Mennonite Church is an Anabaptist Christian community. As disciples of Jesus, we believe faith and action are inseparable elements in each person’s pilgrimage.  We aim to live out our calling to offer welcome and hospitality, discern God’s will in community, worship faithfully and to build peace in our community and in the world.   Sunday morning gatherings offer opportunities for worship in community, fellowship, and Christian education for children, youth and adults.  Please join us!
