Seekers Church Endorses Boston Declaration

Seekers Church endorses the Boston Declaration, a prophetic appeal to Christians of the United States. It was initially signed by 300 theologians and religious leaders who were in attendance at the 2017 meeting of the American Academy of Relgion/Society of Biblical Literature, and has subsequently been signed by over 1000 more throughout the US. The Declaration begins:
As followers of Jesus, the Jewish prophet for justice whose life reminds us to, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31) we hear the cries of women and men speaking out about sexual abuse at the hands of leaders in power and we are outraged.

International Giving 2019

INTERNATIONAL GIVING
2017

Seekers Church continues to support many missions and ministries in the United States and other countries. The amount budgeted for international giving this year approaches 20% of what we expect to receive in offerings over the course of the year. Once our budget for the year was approved, and the overall amount available for international giving had been determined by the Stewards of Seekers Church, all Seekers were invited to request support for missions or ministries where they are personally involved.

After worship on February 19th the community met to determine how our international giving will be distributed. At that community meeting we affirmed support for 13 international missions and ministries:

Global

World Organization for Resource Development & Education (WORDE)

Down the Road Together

A Ministry of Seekers Churchr

The Down the Road project emerged in 2018 from a series of meetings within the Seekers Church community in which we discussed our hopes, fears, plans, and ideas about how we might be a more supportive community for those among us who are dealing with issues of aging or disability in themselves or others.

The first accomplishment of this project has been to create a website (www.downtheroad.life) to provide a forum for Seekers to share information, ideas, resources, plans, and feelings about their own later years or those of their friends and families. The website is open to all, except for the Seekers Chat Room, which is for Seekers only.…

Reunion Road—Eleanor Ellis & Carol Hausner

CD Release: Short Time to Be here

As REUNION ROAD, Carol Hausner and Eleanor Ellis mix and match their rich, emotive blend of voice and guitar with songs in the bluegrass and folk roots traditions. The two first met and began singing together in the musical haven of Takoma Park, MD, during the 1980s, in the early days of the Takoma Park Folk Festival. When festival founder Sammie Abbott was mayor, he and his wife, Ruth, hosted many musical parties where members of this vibrant community met and exchanged songs and ideas.

Doors open at 7:00 PM.
