The early 1900’s marked the emergence of New Thought philosophy and its first churches in America. Seattle was no exception and Netta Holmes was a serious student and advocate. More than anything she wanted a church and in 1921 she came across a building in downtown Seattle and said “this is the place.” That small building became the first home of the Seattle Center for Constructive Thinking which today is known as the Center for Spiritual Living. From this beginning, many generations of spiritual seekers built a foundation for us to become who we are today a robust, passionate, loving and involved community. Going strong for nearly 100 years!

The Center becomes the Church of Truth and moves to 3rd & Bell Street.
The Church of Truth becomes the Christ Church of Religious Science. Under the guidance of Senior Minister, Louis Malone – who presided from 1960 to 1973. The Church moves to 26th Ave. NW in Ballard in 1962.
The Church undergoes another name change, becoming Seattle Church of Religious Science, followed by a 1982 move to Northgate Mall. From 1973 to 1975, Senior Minister, Glen Wood presides.
A new Senior Minister Jim Munson, presides until 1988.
Senior Minister, Kathianne Lewis, DD is chosen to replace Jim Munson.
The Seattle Church of Religious Science moves to Sand Point Way NE.
The name is changed again, becoming the Center for Spiritual Living.
Celebration Hall is built.
Center for Spiritual Living moves to its interim home at the Mountaineers located in Magnusson Park and purchases it's new home in Greenlake.

Our Move

On Sunday, September 2, we started holding our services, classes and events at The Mountaineers, located at 7700 Sand Point Way, in Seattle’s Magnuson Park. The Mountaineers will be our interim home until we move into our new home near Greenlake planned for 2020.

The Mountaineers will host our Sunday programs, including Celebration Services, fellowship, classes, workshops and Youth Programs. Some events may be held at other locations; we will communicate that information on our website and via email on an event-by-event basis. We will be sharing updates via our email newsletter – be sure to sign up!

In Fall 2018 we purchased a new church property at 6318 Linden Ave N. We are in the preparing to move into our new home and will to begin holding classes and events there in April. Our inaugural Sunday at our new Green Lake location will be April 28, 2019 – service times will be 9am, 11am, and 5:30pm with Youth Programming at 9 and 11am.
