Sunday Message: All the Way
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with Susan Clark

The Universe has decreed it and we cannot change it. We shall recognize that effort, that power, that depth of feeling, that glory of creativity, that warmth and color of love, that song that is celestial. We shall know that here and now Spirit itself goes forth anew into creation through us. -Ernest Holmes

Sunday begins the launch of our 30 Days of Prayer, and I believe it is right on time! What an incredible time to deepen our spiritual practice. How amazing it is that we can create daily intention and focus on opening our hearts, expanding our minds, and radiating that out into the world. Let’s take this time to consciously engage in all the ways we pray.

Join us online this Sunday in our virtual sanctuary to be the Love that we are--All The Way!

Board of Trustees
Have questions, suggestions, or comments? Please let the board know:

The monthly board meetings are where Board members review Center business through reports from the Treasurer, the Minister, and the Finance Committee and vote on matters as needed. It is a forum to bring new business and raise concerns. Community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Monthly board meetings are typically the fourth Thursday of each month, starting at 6:00 PM. 

Board working sessions are meetings set aside specifically as work days to give us time to finish tasks, address topics not normally addressed in the monthly meetings, or when our work load is such that the monthly meeting is not enough time. These meetings are also open to the community. Working sessions will be called on an as-needed basis, typically on the second Thursdays of each month, starting at 6:00 PM.

Normally, agendas for both types of meetings are posted in the lobby the Sunday prior to the meeting. During this time, however, we will be including agendas in the newsletter (note: all are subject to change) and Board meetings are being held virtually, via Zoom. If you'd like to participate virtually, contact for more information.

Your current Board of Trustee officers are:
President: Kenneth Winfrey
Vice President: Lisa Crawley
Treasurer: Cliff Wintrode
Secretary: Mickey Quintana
Assistant Secretary: Edker Matthews
Board Members: Caren Phillips, Paula Worley, and Rev. Amani Malaika (non voting)
Executive Advisor to the Board: Candace Sestric (non voting)
