Our vision is to become a Spirit-led movement
inward, outward, and onward together…

…an organism progressing onward: evolving as a hospitable, relevant, self-sustaining, and generative movement that reflects God’s radically inclusive love.

Rainier Arts Center

Current home of V&M near the Park & Library

After a long period of online-only gathering, we began meeting in person on April 17th, 2022 at the Rainier Arts Center: Southeast Seattle's venue for arts and cultural events.

It is a performing arts center and provides both a well-ventilated upper venue for services and a spacious event hall for children's ministry. It is a place ready to greet us in a time of change, and a wonderful location for our spiritual community to regather together. In addition to our Sunday Celebrations, the Center presents outstanding performances, encourages cultural dialogue, and celebrates the diversity of our community in a variety of ways. See you soon!

Join us for Celebration!

The Collab

Previous home of V&M in the heart of Hillman City

In June 2013, V&M partnered with Community Arts Create to open the Hillman City Collaboratorya social change incubator.  It is the focal point of our efforts to create a center for creative liberation in our city and it is also where we gather for Celebrations on Sundays.

Located in the heart of Hillman City, a diverse and historic neighborhood in south Seattle, the Collaboratory is currently home to dozens of social change organizations, an art gallery, a learning kitchen, a homeless drop-in center, and a lot more.
