Sunday, September 30, 11:00 a.m.
“Enlightenment is of little or no value, unless we continue to mature spiritually and emotionally.”
The beliefs or teachings of Unity and New Thought are very different from traditional Christianity. Using the 5 Basic Teachings we will explore what some of those differences are and consider “living into those” more fully.
Join Rev. Ron after the service at 12:30 p.m. in the sanctuary for a Spiritual Café! A Spiritual Café is like gathering around the kitchen table and chatting – about spirituality! Rev. Ron will bring an expanded understanding of his Sunday message and other topics for discussion.
