GCF Thanksgiving

Every year, those of us who are in Seattle (and who do not have local family) are as family to each other when we gather for Thanksgiving dinner. We eat, chat, laugh, decorate a Christmas tree and then go back to our homes for thanksgiving naps. Friends, roommates, and significant others who are not a part of the GCF community are always welcome around the table.

Where: Ashley and Geoff’s House (contact us for the address)

When: eating starts at 1:30

What to bring: an appetizer, beverage or dessert

Let us know if you plan to join in!

On Thursday, November 13 at 7 P.M., join us at the Chapel on the Ave to hear Dr. Justin Tse, SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow, Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington,  Chair of GORABS, Association of American Geographers, and Steering Committee Member of ANARCS, American Academy of Religion.

This talk gives a deep history of the Umbrella Movement through two loose theological alliances – what I call the ‘ecumenism of the state’ versus the ‘ecumenism of the people.’ I’ll show that Christian involvement in the democracy movement is generating new theologies that challenge official collaborations with the elite establishment.–Justin

If you are a UW faculty or graduate student, join us as we hear from fellow faculty and students about their research, their personal journeys as academics and how their faith plays into both of these. We meet on Monday from 12-1 In the HUB.

Fall 2014 Small Groups


Join us this Fall as we learn about exile and God’s faithfulness from the life (and book) of Daniel. GCF’s Fall Bible studies will take a look at this sometimes bizarre, prophetic book and see what it has to say to us today.
