The Elephant In The Room
Childhood Hunger in the Summer

Summer is the hungriest time of year for children in the U.S. It is a period when many of our most vulnerable children lose access to school feeding programs and donations at food banks are low. Admiral Church is holding a Children's Summer Food Drive to assist West Seattle Food Bank all June, July and August. Our goal is 2500 pounds. Thanks to our congregants and generous givers from the community we are currently at 2,281.  Let's make it to the goal!

Bring your donations to Admiral Church

Please call 206-932-2928 for open hours or leave your donation in front of our door.

Bystander Intervention Workshop

2:00- 3:30pm at Admiral Church
--To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org--

Harassment and hate speech are on the rise across the country. Effective intervention is difficult and risky. In this theater-based, immersive workshop, participants practice intervention strategies and learn what works and what doesn't. We use role play, interactive games and follow-up discussion to begin to reprogram our automatic 'fight/flight/freeze' reactions and learn to safely, respectfully de-escalate tense situations.

Admiral UCC offers this workshop in partnership with Anti-Hate Alaska Junction.

Nightingale: A Musical Regarding the Life and Passion of Miss Florence Nightingale (Staged Reading)

by Pamela Gerke, Admiral Choir Director

3:00pm in the Admiral Church sanctuary
$15 suggested donation at the door

Produced by HEARTS: Health Enriched by the Arts, sponsored by Admiral Church

Nightingale brings Florence Nightingale’s story to life through original music and scenes of her life in a musical play that makes her image relevant for modern audiences. 

In celebration of Nightingale's 200th Birthday, HEARTS will be taking this musical to nursing schools, conferences and organizations, healthcare institutions, and other organizations in the Puget Sound area in 2019 & 2020.  We hope that Nightingale will raise awareness of the nursing profession, inspire nurses with the story of an amazing role model, and educate the public about an important part of healthcare history.

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body

at Admiral Church
--To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org--

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression policed by others (and ourselves), and the church's role in supporting human freedom around gender identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Small Groups And Ministries

For more information on any of these groups, please contact the office: officemgr@admiralchurch.org

Women's Book Club

- A monthly gathering on Monday evenings to discuss current books of interest, this group is open to all regardless of how far you actually made it through the monthly selection!

Writing and Prayer Group

- Interested in developing your skills in expressive/creative writing? Excited by the opportunity to create prayers for use in our weekly worship services? Come join us for our monthly evening meetings to share our writing and discuss what makes it effective.

Kainos Arché Alternative Worship Design

- Admiral UCC offers occasional weekday evening worship services to celebrate significant events in the liturgical year (Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Ascension Day, and the Longest Night). Kainos Arché is a Greek phrase which means "new beginnings", representing this group's commitment to thinking creatively about what makes worship engaging, thoughtful, and personal for parishioners. We meet weekly in the month before our upcoming service to brainstorm creative ideas and structure the service for inclusivity and impact.

Cutting Edge Art Group

- We use tissue paper, cardboard, glue, and paint to create dramatic, inexpensive works of art. No experience or “artistic talent” (whatever that means) required! You will learn basic skills and design techniques you can use to create your own projects as well! Contact the office for current meeting times/dates.

Outreach and Service Team

- Admiral UCC supports a number of community organizations and events throughout the year to provide needed aid locally and nationally. Our Outreach and Service Team helps to identify priorities for our congregation and the best strategies for effective mobilization of our members and the community.

Music Advisory Committee

- Music is a big part of worship and community life here at Admiral. The choir is one of our strongest internal ministries, and our staff is exceptional. This group gathers to help support the music ministry of our church, offer suggestions and creative ideas for the future, and coordinates events such as neighborhood sing-alongs, Christmas caroling, and other music programming that reaches beyond our worship.

Fundraising and Events Committee

- Part of our work as a neighborhood church is to help people connect, and there is no better way than through events which invite people in and let them know what we are all about. Our BINGO Nights are the newest contribution of the FEC, and more is on the way.
