Vocation is the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.

Worship With Us This Week...
We celebrated SFBC's relationship with Companis on Sunday. Companis workers participated in many parts of the service, including:
What has Companis brought into my life? It has brought the opportunity to be of service and to use skills that I have developed over the years. But even more it has brought sharing, community and joy.
Over the past 15 years, Seattle First Baptist has never asked anything of me, but you have given me many, many opportunities to contribute, to play a meaningful role in the work that you do. …Oh yeah, and you saved my life. Companis saved my life.
In Our Blog: Home on the Hill
By Aaron Burkhalter
It’s appropriate for me to feel home at a church on the hill in Seattle. Interestingly enough, Seattle First Baptist is the second building on this hill where I felt so at home. The other place was just a dozen blocks away.
For years, my grandfather, Rev. Allan Curtis Parker Jr., was the rector at Trinity Parish. He was the last priest to live in the rectory next door, a four-story house (including the basement and attic) in the heart of the city.
I’ve got two definitions of home. One, as I mentioned, is the place where your lungs can fill to capacity. The other is this: The place where you are recognized just as you were created, as a being who is “very good.”
