Evening Music & Spirit Service

Every Sunday from 5pm - 6pm

This is our 18th year offering interfaith spiritual services! Our mission is to create a service that allows for people to cultivate inner peace and inspire connection to Divine Source.

Music plays a major role in Music & Spirit because we believe that it provides a special spiritual connection. Along with music, the services combine spiritual readings and reflections on world issues and personal values, as well as Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist and Native American beliefs and sacred texts. Spiritual healing is quietly woven throughout the service. Gathering members are welcome to light a candle to commemorate a prayer or event.
 

Upcoming Services

   A Three Week Homily Series with Rev. Don Chatfield
