Office Hours:

Tuesdays 10 am-2 pm

Join us for a casual inspirational hour of rejoicing, rejuvenation, and revelation!

Our journey of Spiritual Awakening focuses on Awareness, Willingness, Acceptance, Kinesis, Evaluation, Now.  We go forth, to grow, and to prosper ourselves and our community.

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, or gay.  We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.  We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or can't carry a note in a bucket.  You're welcome here if you're just "browsing" or just woke up.

We don't care if you're more Catholic than the Pope, or haven't been in church since little Joey's Baptism.  We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.  We welcome those who are recovering or still addicted.  We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps or if you don't like "organized religion;" we've been there too.  We welcome you if you blew all your offering money at the dog track, work too hard, can't spell or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.  We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both.

We offer a s special welcome to those who could use a prayer now, had religion shoved down their throat as a kid or thought you were going to shop but wound up here by mistake.  We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, and bleeding hearts.

Our warmest, open-hearted welcome to all those who enter,
