Mark your calendars for this event. After one of our Sunday Worship Services and our wonderful Fellowship Potluck, we have our annual Surprise Bag Action. This is a fun event that helps raise funds for the Center of Enlightenment to provide for our community.
The festivities start after services and the fellowship potluck on that Sunday. Each paper bag wrapped item(s) are donated by our members, Board of Directors, or Ministers. Some are eagerly bid on. Who knows what is in each package (homemade crafts, artworks, kitchen items, decorations for yard or home) but you’ll have to come, bid, and win to find out. Join us and laugh, try to out-bid your friends, and enjoy a great time.
Our member, Bridget Morris, created this group as a place and time to provide support and encouragement for women by sharing individual challenges and success in a supportive and confidential setting. The goal of the group is to grow our fellowship with other women by understanding that we are not alone in our experiences in life.
Visit our WoE Page for the schedule and notes on our topics.
There will be books of every genre! There will be books on Spiritualism, Religion, Philosophy, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Humor, History, Biography, Autobiography, Nature, Photography, and Children’s and Young Adult.
They should be in good condition, clean, and odor free.
The proceeds go to our Center of Enlightenment Garden Fund.
Each month, we have a potluck luncheon after the Worship Service on the third Sunday to promote fellowship and discuss the day's speaker and topic, what is going on at the church, and the Philosophy, Science, and Religion of Spiritualism. It is also a great way to meet our ministers and members.
The church provides the main dish, and our members and guests provide a dish to share. We also accept donations for those that are not able to bring a dish but would like to contribute to the luncheon.
Our events at CoE are food for the Body, Mind, and Spirit. Each month, we have a fundrasier for the Center with learning, healing, spirit communcation, and fun on the agenda. It is also a way to meet the ministers and other members to share insight and philosophy.
Center of Enlightenment
for your spiritual upliftment
Last year we had an Art Show and Sale. It hosted art from Jackie Gatzmer, and she not only exhibited her art but did a demonstration. The show was such a success that we hosted another and included the talent of Rev. Keith Norton and Fiona Norton with their nature photography, the hand crafts of jewelry by Rev. Barbara Yarnell, and the yarn of Rev. Carol Willis.
We have Message Nights, Healing Nights, Lectures, and Game Nights. There are other events throughout the year hosted by our Ministers that feed us, let us get to know our ministerial staff, members, and friends of CoE.
All are welcome.
The Winter months had a wonderful talk from Patty Shaw, author, Reiki Master, and wife to our Rev. David Shaw and an All Message Night. Spring brought Healing Night, Game Night, and a wonderful workshop, Healing the Heart, with Rev. Marie Phillips. Summer was musical including a Druming Night and Singing Bowl.
