Joining Us for Worship
Seekers Church is located on Zoom and at
276 Carroll Street NW
Washington DC, 20012
We gather at 9:30 am for “Circle Time” in our street-level space for sharing, announcements, and greeting visitors. We move upstairs to the sanctuary around 10:00 am. Since there are no paid clergy at Seekers, the Celebration Circle Mission Group organizes our Sunday worship services. We believe that worship is the heart of who we are, and raises up issues of concern for God’s servant people. We seek a worship experience in which God speaks through the liturgy, scripture, and preaching. Hallmarks of our worship include silence, music, community prayer, scripture reading, a different preacher from the congregation each week, and time for comment and shared reflection. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of every month with all who wish to participate. Our service is usually finished by 11:15, after which we share coffee and conversation.
When we meet in person, all children and youth are invited to participate in the early part of worship, which includes a short message for them. Afterwards, they leave for classes taught by members of the congregation.
Seekers believes that God is continuing to speak to all of us, all the time, and any member of the community may be called upon by God to share the Word as they understand it. We have an open pulpit featuring a different preacher each week, scheduled by Celebration Circle. The texts of our sermons are collected here for further reflection.
Seekers uses traditional liturgical structures, including a call to worship, music, prayer, common confession, etc., to organize our service. However, unlike many churches, we create new liturgies throughout the year. Celebration Circle writes all liturgies using inclusive language and a seasonal theme.
Seekers generally follows the Revised Common Lectionary, a list of Bible readings used by many churches and denominations around the world, to determine the readings that are shared in worship each Sunday. Click here to see the readings we will be using in worship for this season.
