The Hoop of the Home is represented as the walls of the home, or the hoop of the tipi. Children are celebrated, for a home truly comes into its own when there are children present. We celebrate innocence, creativity and play. We celebrate Builders, both material and relational.

Seattle's second InterSpiritual Seder led by Rabbi Ted Falcon with deepening from Ann Holmes Redding & Imam Jamal Rahman Wednesday April 8th 6:00pm Our first InterSpiritual Seder last year was such an incredible success that we are excited to invite you to participate in this year's celebration: Why do so many churches attempt to celebrate a Seder meal? Surely, the connection to the Last Supper is clear, but perhaps the yearning for a celebration of the journey from enslavement to freedom is part of human consciousness itself. Perhaps we all share this yearning for a deeper kind of freedom that can onlybe realized as a spiritual reality. This year, Rabbi Ted Falcon leads Seattle's second InterSpiritual Seder at the Interfaith Community Sanctuary in Ballard, with spiritual deepening from Imam Jamal Rahman and Ann Holmes Redding. As Rabbi Ted says, 'You don't have to be Jewish, you don't have to be Christian, and you don't have to be Muslim to find deep meaning in the symbolic meal celebrating the continuing journey from enslavement to freedom. We all are on a spiritual path that invites us to release  confining patterns of ego and open our hearts and our minds to the realization of true freedom.' Wednesday April 16th 6:00pm (Ritual begins promptly at 6:30pm.) $35.00 per person — make your Reservation with Payment online: [registration link here] Join us in sharing in this authentic Seder ritual designed by Rabbi Ted Falcon with a kosher-style meal, vegan option available.

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.
