V&M - Ravenna

our emerging second location in North Seattle

We are launching a new church! This new community shares the same mission, values, theology, and even the same name of our original congregation (Valley & Mountain in Hillman City). The new church emphasizes the arts as a path to collective liberation and mystical experience of the Divine. 

Why Ravenna? In late 2017, the good people of Ravenna United Methodist Church, an historic and aging congregation, made the bold choice to leave a legacy by transferring their building to us so the work we have been doing can germinate in a second location! We renamed the building the Ravenna Collaboratory and are turning the space into a community hub for the arts, spirituality and social change.

Gatherings at V&M - Ravenna (5751 33rd Ave NE, Seattle)

  • Celebrations: The first three "preview services" will be Oct 10th, Oct 30th, and Dec 5th. These will be 6:30pm-7:30pm and are very family-friendly. Monthly dates in 2019 are forthcoming. When the time feels right, we envision weekly Sunday morning Celebrations.
  • MAKERS: Third Thursday of every month from 7-9pm, MAKERS is an interactive, art-based gathering to explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality. 
  • Taize: Monthly Sunday night Taize services will being in December.

The Collab

The home of V&M in the heart of Hillman City, Seattle.

Starting in June 2013, V&M partnered with Community Arts Create to start the Hillman City Collaboratorya social change incubator.  It is the focal point of our efforts to create a center for creative liberation in our city and it is also where we gather for Celebrations on Sundays.

Located in the heart of Hillman City, a diverse and historic neighborhood in south Seattle, the Collaboratory is currently home to over 24 different social change organizations, an art gallery, a learning kitchen, an urban farm, a homeless drop-in center, and a lot more.
