Joining Jesus

Joining Jesus, June 30—August 11

All that can be definitively known of God has been made known to us by Jesus Christ. He is God made flesh. So who is Jesus? Nothing could be more important for each of us as we seek to join him in his mission of reconciliation. By exploring the seven "I AM" statements, we will let Jesus tell us in his own words.

Check out this short video by Pastor Ken, Pastor Aaron, and Polly as they introduce the new series!

About our Guest Preacher for Sunday, July 21: Alex Cui

Pastor Alex Cui is on staff at the Seattle campus of the Evangelical Chinese Church, which is a “kindred partner” church of UPC. Alex was born, raised and educated in Tianjin, China, where he majored in Chinese Literature and History of Chinese Publishing in college. For a brief period, he worked in Tianjin as an editor of a newspaper publishing company. In 1995, he started his doctorate program in Chinese Ancient Thought History. Alex married his wife, Grace, in 1993 in Tianjin. 

A year after marriage, Alex and his wife were saved by grace through the testimony of a friend’s son. Through God’s wondrous guidance, they began studying God’s Word in a small Bible Study group and served in a fellowship. God led them to a church where they were baptized and grew in Christ together. 

In 1998, God called Alex to full time ministry, and in 1999, he began his seminary training at New Orleans Baptist Seminary. He received his Master of Divinity in December 2002, and through God’s guidance and protection, Alex and his family arrived safely in Seattle on February 15, 2003. Alex and his wife are blessed with two children, a son and a daughter. 

Sunday Worship Times

Traditional Services


Come and enjoy singing your favorite hymns, with music led by choir and pipe organ. Our 70-voice Cathedral Choir sings most Sundays September through June. Other music groups occasionally participate, such as our brass ensemble, woodwind group and string ensemble.  Our Reuter pipe organ with 4 manuals and 70 stops (93 ranks) adds a magnificent dimension to our traditional worship services.

Contemporary Services

10:30am & 5pm

Come as you are and experience our contemporary services that incorporate current worship music and a more relaxed style.  Our contemporary worship team uses guitars, bass, drums and keyboard instruments to support the vocal ensemble who lead us in worship.
