Perhaps you’re curious about a congregation that enjoys stimulating and thought-provoking discussions that incorporate the wisdom of all religions. Maybe you’re seeking a spiritual home or community of like-minded people.
Perhaps you are looking for a program for your children that will guide them to be moral, compassionate people. Or, you may just need an hour of spirituality and tranquility in the midst of a busy life. Whatever your reason, we welcome you.
To be welcoming to all, we endeavor to be a scent free space.
