We are a diverse group of believers – bankers, musicians, social workers, teachers, public servants, business owners, parents – united by our desire to live by our Declaration of Principles and the desire to learn the deeper essence of who we really are; the purpose of our soul’s journey, our connection to one another, and our connection to Infinite Spirit (God).
We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of Infinite Intelligence, God. Spiritualism teaches through freedom rather than restriction that every day allows us the opportunity for new beginnings and that happiness is our birthright.
We are a healing sanctuary believing in the fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man, and the continuity of life.
