Activities at the Church of the Spirit

The Church building is closed during the COVID-19 restrictions. We are holding services online, our weekly "Sunday" church service is a Zoom meeting at 6:15 pm on Saturdays.

To reduce the possibility of outsiders hacking, the login information and password only appears with the emails we send to the mailing list.



The Church of the Spirit is now holding its weekly Spiritualist church service as an online meeting on Saturday evening, starting at 6:15 pm CDT. We send an email 1-2 days before the service with the login and password instructions.

There will be no First Wednesday All Message Service in September. All Message Services will resume after we open up the church again.



We are holding an Unfoldment Class (combined beginner, intermediate and advanced) online on alternate Wednesdays starting September 9. There is a $120 fee for all classes. Click on this link for more information.


On Sept 19 the sermon was delivered by Rev Stacy Kopchinski. She quoted a prayer of Eusebius, which follows. You may listen to her full sermon here.

May I be an enemy to no one and the friend of what abides eternally.
May I never quarrel with those nearest me, and be reconciled quickly if I should.
May I never plot evil against others, and if anyone plot evil against me,
May I escape unharmed and without the need to hurt anyone else.
May I love, seek and attain only what is good.
May I desire happiness for all and harbor envy for none.
May I never find joy in the misfortune of one who has wronged me.
May I never wait for the rebuke of others, but always rebuke myself until I make reparation.
May I gain no victory that harms me or my opponent.
May I reconcile friends who are mad at each other.
May I, insofar as I can, give all necessary help to my friends and to all who are in need.
May I never fail a friend in trouble.
May I be able to soften the pain of the grief stricken and give them comforting words.
May I respect myself.
May I always maintain control of my emotions.
May I habituate myself to be gentle, and never angry with others because of circumstances.
May I never discuss the wicked or what they have done,but know good people and follow in their footsteps.
Eusebius


On Sept 5, Rev Marrice gave a sermon on Happiness. Inspired by that, the following week church member Marcia Brainin told the story of her lifelong search for Happiness. Both talks can be found here.

Now, Make Your Offering Online!

Are you able to do "online banking" using a web site or a phone app to see your balances, make transfers and pay bills?

Then your bank probably already offers Zelle as a way to pay money to people and businesses. Look for the section on the site that says something like Transfers, Send Money, or Pay Someone.

Zelle is a popular system used by a large number of banks and now you can use it to send a donation to the Church of the Spirit. When you get to the Zelle screen the first thing you have to do is set up the recipient. You only have to do this once.You'll be asked for a phone number or email.

For the Church, enter this email address:
churchofthespirit123@yahoo.com
If you're asked if it's a person or a business, check business.

Now you're all set. Specify a donation amount and it will confirm that the money is going to THE CHURCH OF THE SPIRIT. It transfers from bank to bank pretty quickly.

If you can't find anything about Zelle on your bank site, go to zellepay.com and follow the instructions.

Many blessings and thank you so much for your financial support!


Amen
