We are so excited that you have decided to join us to Celebrate Oneness together! Spiritual community is a personal exploration of how we share our spiritual practices with others.

Here at the Columbia Center for Spiritual Living, we want you to know that we believe we’re made better when we share this path with each other. No matter who you are, what your past experiences have been or where you’re at in your life and your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.

We invite you to “try us on for size” because we want you to have a spiritual home. If you are seeking a community and we can be that community or even if we can help you come one step closer to finding the community you always wanted, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

General Information

We are a New Thought community that teaches Religious Science, also known as “The Science of Mind” or “Spiritual Living”. We bless all paths to Spiritual Awakening that are founded in Love and the Eternality of the Human Soul.

Whether it is lighting a candle, burning incense, facing the east, uttering a mantra or lighting a menorah, we honor your path. We want you to know that no matter who you are or where you’ve been, you are welcome here.

Sunday Celebration

Our community is very similar to traditional faith communities in the way we gather on Sunday morning. We have inspiring music, readings, prayer, meditation and a talented speaker each week.

Youth Services

During our Sunday Celebration our community offers a program for youth that we like to call “Funday School” during our Sunday Services for children aged 5 to 12 and childcare for younger children.

Will I Be Asked To Do Anything?

As our guest, we don’t ask anything of you but your presence. Please join us knowing that you are welcome to engage our community at whatever depth you feel comfortable and called to do so.

  • We’re forever grateful for this teaching – It has given us the substance with which to live in our Truth, to create music and bring healing to ourselves and the world vbc.

  • I live, move, breathe and have my being in a universe that works for me. This teaching helps me remember to keep this awareness, this consciousness, at the front of my thinking.
