Welcome to The Church Within website and to the very idea of The Church Within itself. The Church Within was founded in 1992. We are an ever-evolving spiritual community, dedicated to offering unconditional support and love to all who seek inner wisdom through a spiritual life.

The best way to get to know us is to share in the joy, spirit, and celebration of our 10:00 AM Sunday gathering. The best "brochure" we have is us.

We are folks whose pasts include other churches or no church at all. Some come simply to expand their current faith experience. As one of our members puts it, "I come to The Church Within, because it helps me discover my faith and live it out in the world."

We are a diverse, informal gathering who believes in the power of prayer, in God (whatever name you use for Source), and in each other.

Snow Day!

Published on March 1, 2015, by in Featured.

Friends, it is just too bad out there. I’m sorry this email is coming so late. It took some convincing for me to stay home! I hope you will make the same choice for yourself, though. Stay safe and warm.

Blessings on your day! I hope it is perfect.

On Course ACIM Class Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015

“RE-LENT-ING” is the topic for A Course in Miracles class at The Church Within, 7 p.m. on Thursday February 19.

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent leading up to Easter. The ashes are intended to remind us we are dust, but A Course in Miracles reminds us we are spirit:

T-31.VIII.1. Temptation has one lesson it would teach, in all its forms, wherever it occurs. 2 It would persuade the holy Son of God he is a body, born in what must die, unable to escape its frailty, and bound by what it orders him to feel. 3 It sets the limits on what he can do; its power is the only strength he has; his grasp cannot exceed its tiny reach. 4 Would you be this, if Christ appeared to you in all His glory, asking you but this:

5 Choose once again if you would take your place among the saviors of the world, or would remain in hell, and hold your brothers there.

6 For He has come, and He is asking this.

We will discuss commonly held beliefs about temptation and sacrifice and their true origin in the dreaming mind.

On Course Class Thursday, February 13, 2015

“THE ART OF RE-VISION” will be the topic for A Course in Miracles class onThursday, February 12, 7 p.m. at The Church Within.

The ego claims to have written our past history — all its hurts, sorrows, betrayals, disappointments, offenses, grievances, failures, outrages — in indelible ink. The Course says that, through the miracle, the past is entirely “delible” (erasable).

T-22.III.4. Everything the body’s eyes can see is a mistake, an error in perception, a distorted fragment of the whole without the meaning that the whole would give. 4 And yet mistakes, regardless of their form, can be corrected.

We will talk about specific ways to rewrite the past.
