How do you define success? Is it a purposeful career? Or soul-satisfying relationships? How about dynamic, vibrant and radiant health? Surely it includes a deep and abiding sense of your oneness with God? Perhaps an abundant flow of prosperity? Or walking in a state of Grace and Inner Peace and experiencing the Joy of Life? How about all of the above and more? Whatever your definition of success is, this month we will explore how to achieve it using Jack Canfield’s insightful and empowering book, “The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where you Want to Be.” This is a month to recognize and align with your inner creative power to succeed. Be sure to be with us each week because one week builds upon another . . . and we won’t be backing up!
May 7, 2017- The Foundation for SuccessSpecial Music by Les Koel

These principles probably won’t be new to you, but we will look at them in a new and highly personal way. Be sure to be with us today – you just may be astounded!

May 28, 2017 - Success Starts NowSpecial Music by Jennifer Sheets
This month we have recognized and aligned with our inner creative power to succeed, acknowledging that success is God-ordained. As we succeed, we prove the fundamental spiritual principle of our Science of Mind/Unity teachings: There is a power for Good in this Universe, and we can use it! And there is one other thing we do when we succeed. We make a difference in this world! Join us today as we bring our theme to a close with two game-changing success principles.
Do you think the world could use a big dose of our Science of Mind principles right now? Do you think if more people lived from Oneness, knew they were Spiritual Beings and realized their creative nature that life-affirming political, social and economic shifts would occur? Could Love really be the answer to every question? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then April is for you as we recognize the sacredness of Easter and delve into the role we each can play in creating a world where God’s Love, Light and Truth are experienced in higher and grander ways.
April 2 – “Find 1,000 People”Special Music by Pam Morita
Our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, gave a moving and powerful talk at the Religious Science conference at Alisomar in 1959 in which he said, “find one thousand people who know that, and use it, and the world will no longer be famished.” Today we will hear a portion of his talk and discover what “that” is and how we can use it.
April 9, Palm Sunday – “Now I Can See The Moon”with Guest Speaker Rev. Sally Robbins Special Music by Darius Lux
Japanese poet Mizuta Masahide wrote, “Barn’s burnt down – now I can see the moon.” Living the Science of Mind principles requires a consciousness that sees beyond apparent limitations, and today we’ll explore how to anchor into that consciousness. This Sunday, we will also experience our most beloved ceremony -- The Palm Sunday Rose Blessing in which anyone who desires will be personally blessed.
April 16, Easter - “Begin Anew”Special Music by Heart and Soul (6:00 am Sunrise Service); Point of Light (9:00 and 11:00 am Services)
As we explore the metaphysics behind Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, we are invited into a renewed aliveness and a recommitment to living a conscious, Spirit-filled life. And as we each begin anew with our personal renewal and recommitment, we become beacons of greater light for the world. Come turn up your light with us on this beautiful and sacred morning.
April 23 – “Where Do You Stand?”Special Music by Rilee Ann Webb
How do you see yourself being one of the “1,000 people” we spoke about on April 2? How will the blessing you received on Palm Sunday come alive in your life? How have you turned up your light as a result of our Easter experience together? We will explore these question (and more!) as we gather together to make the past weeks very, very personal.
April 30 – “’Hacking’ The Shack“with Guest Speaker Rev. Renee Morgan Brooks Special Music by Sally Jo Bannow
“Today I am Expressing God's Love, Being God's Light and Living God's Truth” is a perfect affirmation for our ever-expanding relationship of living as One in the Mind of The Divine. Breaking into or exploring the book “The Shack” by William P. Young (and the subsequent movie) provides yet another platform to get clearer and go deeper into the Divine of our Being. It's time to release any distorted thinking, kick our emotional baggage to the curb and be what we came here to be . . . God's Light! By the time we meet April 30, give yourself the treat of having experienced the book or the movie – or both.
