Coronavirus and Church Safety
Beloved SSL Family,
Please see below for current event and service information:
Sunday and Open at the Top Wednesday Services: If you have any symptoms of illness, in a higher risk group, or simply want to act with caution, please stay home. We are currently live-streaming our services on our church’s Facebook account. Please join our Facebook Group to be able to view the services. To Join Facebook, simply go to www.facebook.com and create an account. After you have joined, please also join the Sanctuary for Spiritual Living Facebook Group by clicking here. If you need any assistance with joining Facebook or finding our group, please contact Peggy at 818-271-0369. Please text first to request a phone or in-person meeting for tech support.
When visiting the church, please continue to practice safe distance and limit greeting to elbow bumps, Namaste, and air hugs.
We will serve coffee in Harmony Hall after Sunday Services, but no food will be served for now. Our volunteers are discussing ways in which we can more safely and effectively provide food service. Until then, we will be keeping our offerings simple.
Classes: Reverend Kris is preparing to offer our classes online using Zoom technology. Please look for information in your email inboxes with instructions and links to join classes in Zoom.
Spring Cleaning: Subs and Bubbles Release Your Troubles retreat will be postponed until after the pandemic has been lifted. If you have already paid for registration, your love offering is being held and will be applied when we are able to reschedule the retreat. If you decide you want to cancel attendance let Rev. Kris know and she will process a cancellation and send you a check.
Anton Mizerak and Laura Berryhill concert scheduled for 3/22 has been cancelled. We will announce when they will be able to resume their tour and schedule the date they will perform for us here at SSL.
We appreciate your continued financial support and pledges to our wonderful Sanctuary. About 35% of our budget comes from classes, events and rentals. The expenses are of course on-going, although some will drop because of us not heating rooms.
You can make your donations by credit or debit by using the button below, or simply mailing a check to the Sanctuary.

We understand the concern and disappointment at having to postpone the events we have been so looking forward to. Be conscious that these measures are temporary and we hold Divine anticipation for all to return to normal in time. We embrace cooperation with CDC guidelines for staying safe and preventing the spread of COVID 19 as part of our spiritual practice affirming wholeness and vibrant life for all.
From my heart to yours,
Reverend Dr. Kristina Collins
Sunday and Wednesday "Open at the Top" Recordings
Open at the Top Wednesday Service 4/1/20
Open at the Top" service at 7:00 pm
We help one another to see Life’s “big picture” and to allow God to fully embrace our lives for true health, happiness and well-being.
A Wednesday meeting place where Rev. Greg Dorst JD, CADC II brings people together to experience the Science of Mind in everyday life.
Rev. Greg says, “We all have our issues in life, our ups and downs. Let’s use the greatest set of spiritual tools known to humankind, literally given to use by Ernest Holmes and the mystics, to apply to our real-world situations. How you make these ideas ‘work’ in your life is the challenge. To learn about our philosophy is one thing, to LIVE it is another.”
