History

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.
