Seattle First Baptist Church

1111 Harvard Avenue, Seattle, WA, USA 98122
206.325.6051

Lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered individuals are fully welcome at Seattle First Baptist, and have been welcome here for decades. A support group for gay men was first formed by one of our pastors in the 1960s. A lesbian couple was married here in the 1980s (they are still together, by the way). When Washington State allowed same-sex couples to marry in 2012, we hosted a ceremony for 25 couples from the community. Today all individuals are welcome to fully participate here — our leadership and active membership includes individuals who serve fully and faithfully regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Here you are encouraged to be fully who you are.
Here you are accepted, valued, and encouraged to grow into the complete individual that God wants you to be.
Here you can forget about the barriers that still divide so many parts of our society.
Here you are invited, just as you are, to join us, just as we are, in a mutual journey of love, support and respect.

Seattle First Baptist is a church community that seeks to follow the way of Jesus Christ, to be a people of God and to love and care for our neighbors. We invite you to be part of us for one website visit, one worship service, or for a lifetime. Seattle First Baptist is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA and values traditional historic Baptist principles such as Soul Freedom — the right of each person to interpret the Bible and other teachings for her or himself, the Separation of Church and State and the Autonomy of the congregation. As a church we value our communal times of worship, music and education together, and we encourage individuals to discover and walk their spiritual path in solitude and in community, in small groups and large, and in individual spiritual direction.

Community Peer Respite Planning Council
0.0

In times of crisis, individuals may feel alone or overwhelmed by their emotions, such as anxiety, panic, anger, fear, sadness, lack of control, and extreme experiences. At a peer respite people can turn crisis into wellness. With increased skills and peer support individuals may reduce or eliminate the effects of pressures that may cause overwhelming emotional distress. Community Peer Respite Planning Council os a grassroots, peer-led group developing and advocating for a peer respite in King County, WA.

A peer respite is a voluntary, short-term overnight program that provides non-clinical peer support for individuals to find understanding and ways to move through crises. Peer respite operates 24 hours a day in a home-like environment that has at a minimum, a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, living room space, and individual bedrooms. Peer respite serves individuals who are 18 years or older who are able to perform activities of daily living. A person interested in using the peer respite must self-refer, and people can leave the peer respite to go to work, appointments, meetings, etc. The peer respite is staffed 24/7 by individuals who have common life experiences with the people they are serving.

Community Peer Respite Values

  • Self-determination - We strive for individuals to make choices, achieve autonomy and be the expert of their wellness.
  • Mutuality - We support one another towards a common goal while respecting individuality and choice.
  • Respect - We embrace certain rights such as confidentiality. We recognize that respect may have different meanings and we appreciate those differences. We are aware that language matters. We appreciate this space and use it with care.
  • Wellness - We believe that wellness is defined individually and can be achieved with support and encouragement.
  • Community - We support individuals to seek out and make contact with others at the peer respite and within their community of choice as a way to find purpose and belonging.

Benefits of a Peer Respite

  • Provides peer support, which is affordable, effective and peer oriented.
  • Peer respites can prevent trauma that may occur with hospitalization: coercion, forced treatment, loss of dignity and loss of housing and employment in the community.
  • Peer respite is a community support.
  • Peer respite expands and diversifies available crisis services.
  • Peer respites can integrate emotional, spiritual, behavioral, and physical aspects of a person.
