All Inclusive Spiritual Connectedness
We are an open and affirming progressive Christian community of faith-seeking and faith-keeping people grounded in stories and truths from the scriptures. We are open to insights and interpretations of God revealed to us through new experiences, different faiths and diverse cultures. We provide opportunities for formation of Christian ideals through spiritual enrichment, offer education for progressive Christians to find their own ways of understanding Jesus, and encourage practice of these teachings in everyday living.
Sundays are designed with you in mind. There is a variety of Gathering Prayers, Sermons that make you think, Traditional and Newly Inspired Hymns, Meditative Moment of Silence, Children’s Story or Song, and Opportunities to Share with Your Community.
Each service is designed to take you on a contemplative journey of self discovery. We offer you space to open up to new possibilities in your thinking and spirit. It is the collective intention that you feel renewed for your week ahead.
Our small groups help you to connect with others respectfully with ideas and insights. We will use books to inspire ideas or we may ask thoughtful questions that help us connect with our purpose, interest and understanding more deeply. Developing together helps us to be stronger and more effective in our lives individually.
Share Your Life Journey
Every week you have an opportunity to be around others who like you, experience the ups and downs of life. You dont have to do anything alone, and with a community of people we all support and care for one another. We all take responsibility for ourselves and our happiness, but there is something very sacred about sharing our lives with others. To be seen and heard without being fixed or changed. We want you to share your life with us, as we share ours with you on our life’s journey.
There are always ways to give to your community utilizing the ministries available at Church of the Beatitudes.
