Interfaith Community Sanctuary

Welcome to Interfaith Community Sanctuary!

Sunday October 11th

Universal Worship
"The Hoop of Intention" 


The Universal Worship recognizes that all religions originate in the same Truth. All of the great teachers and prophets have reflected this truth to humanity in their own way. The same power that inspired them continues to move through and guide our own lives. Through communal prayer, meditation, and practice we engage with the power and energy of this continuous revelation, becoming a radiant vessel of light and truth for the benefit of all beings.

Cherags Michael Douglas, Karen Lindquist, and Sally Jo Gilbert de Vargas offer Universal Worship on the second Sunday morning of each month at Interfaith Community Sanctuary.

Interfaith Community Sanctuary's Spiritual Discernment for the year is "Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor." In October we explore the "Hoop of Intention."  This is the hoop of Intentional Action. Right action requires respect, acceptance, gratitude, appreciation, harmony, love, compassion, deep caring connectedness and love. What are the issues to which we are willing to commit ourselves and our lives? What is missing to build a life we love in a world we love to live in? In this circle we are asked to commit ourselves to something and set a clear intention as to how we will work to make a better world for all. We celebrate the Scientists and the seers of possibilities. Read more about "Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor" here. 

Ballard Food Bank donations are invited each Sunday. The donation barrel is located on the eastside of our building. Follow the walkway through the garden. The barrel is up the stairs, under the covered porch. Let's fill it up every Sunday. Thank you for feeding the hungry!

Capital Fundraising Campaign

In March 2012 the Interfaith Community Sanctuary initiated a Capital Fundraising Campaign to cover current and anticipated major expenses to maintain our historic building…our unique sacred space.  To cover current and anticipated expenditures plus provide a reasonable reserve fund for unexpected emergencies.

In 2014 we were blessed with a grant that allowed us to replace the roof but the exterior of our historic building still needs repainting. Our almost 100 year old water line and the gutters and downspouts are also in need of replacement. In addition, we would like to provide a means of access for the disabled.  All of these projects are expensive but necessary to maintain the integrity of our facility.

We are asking each and every friend and member of ICS to think hard about what this community means to you and to contribute something extra to support the Capital Fundraising Campaign.   All donations to ICS are completely tax deductible.  Any donation to the Capital Fundraising Campaign should be marked “Capital Fundraising Campaign” or ICS/CFC.  Donations can be made by Credit Card or PayPal by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right or by mailing a check directly to the church at the address below.  Thank you for your continued support!  Click HERE for more information on our Capital needs and Fundraising Campaign.
