…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.
Here is a look at what’s been happening at Seekers Church.
Dairy Subsidies, “Sticky Fingers,” and More!
Vegan Bakery Next Door to Seekers!
Sticky Fingers, a woman-owned, vegan bakery, is heading to Takoma this fall. Sticky Fingers will open a retail bakery and commercial kitchen in the space formerly occupied by Soupergirl at 314 Carroll St., NW. The opening date is tentatively set for September.
The bakery will have a retail counter for cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and buns, along with a grab-and-go section for top-selling savory items from its H Street N.E. diner, like aged and fresh vegan cheeses, vegan charcuterie, and local favorites, including Soupergirl soups.

Sandra’s Tasty, Beautiful Meals on the Fly
by Sandra Miller
Being happy with my conversion to being vegan about 3 months ago, after being a vegetarian much of my adult life, I thought offering something, if even just a recipe, would be a cakewalk. Not so. This writing has become an opportunity to examine how I can take established and new practices and ideas into a framework that makes it easier to keep to my convictions, and maybe makes it easier for people sitting on the fence to think about veganism differently.

International Giving 2023
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:
World Organization for Resource Development & Education (WORDE)
New Story Leadership - Israel/Palestine
Rostropovich Vishnevskaya Foundation – Palestine
Bokamoso Youth Foundation – South Africa
Othandweni Day Care and Guest House – South Africa
Gospel Power and Truth Ministries – Uganda – Uganda
