Welcome to Inspiration Sundays

Join us in person or live online for our Celebration Sunday.

What types of activities are available for members of the community?

We endeavor to establish a community that feels like family, one that enables you to connect to your spiritual center, that nurtures your soul with sacred relationships and one that inspires. We offer events and activities to meet people at their level of comfort. Activities to connect include: Sunday Services, Sacred Service (volunteering), Soul Circles, classes in spirituality, spiritual retreats, and special events including inspirational concerts and other celebrations.  

Are children welcome at services?

Yes! We value our youth and their joyful growth in spirituality. Our Enlightened Kids Village (EKV) is available to children over the age of 3. Children under the age of 3 are welcome in the sanctuary with their parents . We have trained personnel to support your children with fun, inspiring activities during our Sunday Service. Our kids room is a safe place to drop off your child(ren) while you attend Service. If you feel your child is mature enough to attend Sunday Service, feel free to bring them in!

Is Soul Center Christian?

Soul Center embraces openness, community, and growth.

Some Soul Center members are Christian, and their personal encounter with the spirit of Jesus as an embodiment of the Christ Consciousness richly informs their spiritual lives.

As a community, we don’t embrace Jesus as the only savior and Christianity as the only path to God and to eternal salvation. Instead, we embrace New Thought — Ageless Wisdom history including the Gnostic teachings of Jesus and the earliest Christian mystical sects.  We also embrace the founders of the uniquely American New Thought Movement including Emmanuel Swedenborg, Ernest Holmes, Howard Thurman, and transcendentalists such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and others.

While the Bible is referenced in our services and classes, the version that is primarily used is a metaphysical, Gnostic-inspired edition. Also referenced are scriptures from the world’s wisdom traditions including the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Tao Te Ching, the Zohar, works by the transcendentalists, and more.

Soul Center teaches that Jesus was not the great exception, but rather the great example. Classically, the New Thought-Ageless Wisdom tradition regards Jesus an enlightened being, one who attained cosmic consciousness, or liberation from a sense of separation from the Source of all that is. Jesus, like Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha) and others are revered as way-showers and exemplars of unconditional love, selfless service, and self-mastery.
