Next Door

Joining Jesus in his mission to reconcile all people.


UPC has always been a church with a vision to live out Christ’s love in the places where we live, study, work, and play. As the culture around us shifts, how do we engage with it? God is bringing the world to our doorstep and we have a unique opportunity to share the Gospel with people of all ages, generations, and ethnicities.


Our vision:

Joining Jesus in his mission to reconcile all people.

Who We Are

We are a family of communities joining Jesus to transform our lives and the lives of our neighbors at the University of Washington, in our neighborhoods, and all around the world. 

Where Do We Begin? 

With Jesus. And prayer. And with honest reflection on our own experiences of: neighborhood, circles, and family.



What’s my neighborhood? It’s either the community where I live, study, work, or play, or where Jesus is calling me to join him.


Who are some friends who could join me on mission in that neighborhood? What would it look like for our circle to start doing life together on mission with Jesus?


What would it mean for us to start living like family with the neighbors in that neighborhood? What tensions would it create? How would our lives have to change?
