Finding connections in worship.
Our worship services provide an opportunity to share the joy of our faith in community, to reflect and connect with others. A particular characteristic of FCC Bellevue is the wide variety of music styles, instruments and voices that contribute to our services. As an inclusive congregation, we start every Sunday service with an open invitation and welcome to come together as one church.
We are both an in-person and an online congregation. Our Sunday services usually last around one hour from start to finish. Bulletins (both online and printed) are available to help participants access scripture readings and congregational music. You can view past worship services on YouTube or Facebook.
What to expect
Our worship services help us worship God in community! We celebrate our faith with music, moments of sharing and time for reflection. On any given Sunday you will see that a large number of people are actively engaged in contributing to the week’s program. After each worship service, we invite those attending to stay for a time of coffee and fellowship.
Our nursery, for children under three, is open from 9:15 a.m. until the end of the Worship service. During the service, children ages 3 through 5th grade will be invited to join our faith formation activities. Children are also welcome to remain in worship. Activity packets are available at the back of the sanctuary
What to wear
We want you to wear whatever is comfortable for you. Some of us come in shorts and t-shirts, others may wear suits and ties and on Seahawk Sundays, you may see jerseys and blue and green hair!
On the first Sunday of every month, we share a small piece of bread (or a gluten-free cracker) and then take and drink a small cup of grape juice (or water). All are welcome. This ritual reminds us of the fellowship Jesus shared with his disciples. We celebrate communion, showing thanks for all God does and to remember Christ’s presence. It also reminds us that we are all one in the church.
We baptize infants, children, youth, and adults. Through baptism, a person is joined with the universal church, the body of Christ. Water is sprinkled on the person as the sign and seal of our common discipleship. We recognize the validity of all baptisms, so there is no need for re-baptism. We baptize during worship to include the community’s promise to love, support, and care for the person being baptized.
Assistive listening devices are available as you enter the service. Please ask an usher for assistance.
