Notification regarding Facebook Live Stream Services
Due to current increased security concerns in Facebook and other social media platforms, SSL has recently made changes to the policy regarding interacting in group activity such as FB Live streamed events. Please note that Facebook has determined that accounts that have no profile photo associated with it has a higher likelihood of being a fake account designed to either scam vulnerable participants and/or to propagate inappropriate messages both on our personal pages and during livestream events.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your cooperation in keeping our online presence safe.

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.”
