Who We Are
Seekers Church is a diverse, progressive, and affirming family of faith working for peace and justice. Our youngest member is one year old, our oldest is over 90. We are a Christian church whose members’ spirituality and theology range broadly. We have no full-time clergy and host a different speaker in the pulpit each week, usually from within our congregation. Women and men share equally in all aspects of service and leadership, from preaching and teaching to making coffee and maintaining our building. We celebrate and welcome people of all races, sexual orientations, gender identities, beliefs, and cultures to full participation in the church’s community life, rituals, and leadership.
At Seekers Church…
We believe God calls each person to a place of need in the world. Young or old, regardless of experience, skills, or education, despite our past successes or failures, God calls each of us to a life of love and service. This call may take root in workplace, community, family, or nature. We may be called to art or advocacy, law or homemaking, building relationships, or deconstructing oppression. The call is always bigger than we are, but as we find support from each other in our spiritual journeys, we can dare to say “Yes!” to impossible undertakings, to fully imagining and living our unique and precious lives.
At the heart of the Seekers community are small, committed groups that support the life and goals of the church and each participant. In these groups, members share more intimately their joys and struggles, practice common spiritual disciplines, and find spiritual accountability. These hallmarks of Seekers’ life together are part of our tradition from Church of the Saviour.
While white supremacy culture affects us all, harms us all, and is toxic to us all, it does not affect, harm and violate us in the same way. White supremacy targets and violates Black, Indigenous and People of Color and their communities with the intent to destroy them directly; white supremacy targets and violates white people with a persistent invitation to collude that will inevitably destroy their humanity.Adapted from: Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ)
Seekers Church stands firmly against white supremacy and systemic racism and will continue its ongoing work to dismantle racism through activism, legislative advocacy, sacred conversation with others who share our concerns, financial support of organizations and individuals engaged in anti-racism work, education of ourselves and others and every other means we are able to identify.
