Week of January 26, 2020
 
Sunday Message: Color Me Connected
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players & Michael Herndon

When one separates themselves from the Divine Fire, they become an isolated spark. We are strong only when united with Life.
--Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind


We've been looking at connection to each other as divine expressions during January. When we commit ourselves to the practice of connection with one another, we are committing ourselves to connection to the power and goodness of the Divine. We connect ourselves to all the colors and wonder of Spirit as Life itself.

Join us Sunday to celebrate all the colors of connection.

Board of Trustees

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 and/or fourth Thursdays of each month, starting at 6:00 PM.

Agendas for both types of meetings are posted in the lobby the Sunday prior to the meeting.
