Welcome to Spiritual Seekers United in Community

I Am Home at SSUC

Our conversations are rich and multi-leveled. I feel valued, challenged intellectually and stimulated on many levels.
At SSUC they, in the almost immortal words of Jack Nicholson, ‘make me want to be a better person.’

Safe & Dynamic Community

“I’ve found at Southminster-Steinhauer a safe and dynamic community where I’m free to give and  receive what I need. No actually, I’ve found my adoptive family.”

My Kids Love It

I came to find a place where I could bring my kids to have conversations about community and meaning.
I love the welcome we receive - the kindness and generosity from all the members.

Very humanistic & Earthbound

The Sunday service is always an enjoyable time, filled with wisdom, time to reflect & express gratitude for life.
Very humanistic & Earthbound, this church is for all the people who want spirituality without all the harsh ideologies of organized religion.

Escape Traditional Religious Dogma

I came to SSUC in search of solace and to find a way through my grief after my husband of 38 years died.
I did find that support, but I discovered much more. . . a community steeped in a tradition of social justice, embracing inclusivity, and exploring spirituality past the restrictions of traditional religious dogmas. SSUC has become an important part of my life.

I love this place.

"I love this place. The reflections offered on Sunday morning always seem to be in tune and relevant to what I'm experiencing in my life.”

I have felt so welcomed and included in this beautiful community.

“The quality of the leaders and of the people that  make up this community inspire me to live a deeper spiritual everyday life. I have felt so welcomed and included in this beautiful community. The ministers are very passionate about their work and I can tell that they are living their true calling. It inspires me to live mine!”

We have found a different way forward: progressive Christianity.

“As seekers, we came to feel hemmed in by the continuing emphasis within Lutheranism on cannon and creeds, dogmas and doctrines, rote and rites, liturgy and formularies. But look—we, on our spiritual journey, have found a different way forward: progressive Christianity. And nowhere is this more evinced than at Southminster-Steinhauer United Church.”

Encouraging Spiritual Evolution

With my understanding of progress in science it is impossible to accept notions and beliefs that were formulated 2000 years ago.
SSUC recognizes the evolution that has occurred in understanding in nearly all areas of human endeavor and encourages evolution in spiritual/religious thinking.

Warm and Welcoming

This is the most beautifully inclusive, warm, friendly, non-judgmental church I've ever been too.
I'm a registered psychologist myself and the services here feel truly therapeutic, inspiring, thought provoking, and soul enriching.
