The Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth has been a dynamic community of spiritual seekers for 24 years. Each Sunday we gather to explore and grow from universal truths from all spiritual paths. Our services include a short meditation and reading, music, an in-depth talk by a minister or guest speaker, an open-mic time to discuss the talk, and community greetings. See more about our Sunday services below.

Sunday services may draw upon sources as diverse as the poetry of Rumi, a teaching from the Buddha, a story about Jesus, a Jewish chant, and a reading from A Course in Miracles.
Prayer, singing, and community announcements open our Sunday celebrations. We take a few moments to greet each other with “Namaste” (Sanskrit for “the Divinity in me salutes the Divinity in you”). Each week also features guest musicians, a spiritual reading and a guided meditation. These are offered by volunteers and expose us to diverse practices and perspectives.
The core of our shared learning is a lesson by one of our ministers or a guest speaker each Sunday, followed by Open Mic time. Open Mic is a time for spontaneous responses to the morning’s teachings. Anyone canshare a question, struggle, or insight. Honest sharing connects us and helps us ground new spiritual insights in the reality of daily living.
We close by singing a Sufi benediction.
We are an open and affirming community. Newcomers, please stop by the Welcome Table near the entryway to learn more.
Join us for coffee in the Social Hall after services and a potluck lunch the first Sunday of each month. (Currently suspended due to Covid.)
