    From my heart to yours,

    Reverend Dr. Kristina Collins

    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.”
