Our Sunday Service

Though we have been celebrating our services and other events on Zoom or our YouTube channel since the beginning of the pandemic, our 11 a.m. Sunday service is both the culmination and the beginning of our spiritual week, as we gather as community to focus on Spirit, Self and the Universe. Integrating meditation, energy healing, and spiritual message-bearing with more traditional worship activities like homilies (sermons) and congregational prayer, our Service helps us claim our total Well-Being by revitalizing our energy body, honing our mind and nourishing our soul.

 

Our congregants’ diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds bring a unique, rich perspective to the Service.
