What is the New Member Class?

This is a one-session class (generally in the evening) facilitated by Dr. David and/or Rev. Susan, wherein attendees explore the surface of Religious Science – what it is, what it does, and how to use it. This class is a requirement for Center for Spiritual Living Membership, although everyone is welcome – even if you've taken the class before. Includes handouts and lots of fun! This class is a gift from the Center to you – there is no fee.

 

Give Yourself the Gift of Community . . .

Through Center for Spiritual Living Membership!

What is Membership?

An individual who commits to and believes in the message and the vision of the Center for Spiritual Living San Jose is eligible to embark on the membership process.  The ownership in the vision is such that each member willingly strives to keep it alive by partnering with the Community Spiritual Leader, other leadership, and the staff.  Opportunities to become a member happen twice a year, generally in the fall and spring.

What are the Membership Agreements?

Be Active, Loyal and Supporting. This includes:

1) Completing either the Foundations or Beyond Limits certificated class;

2) Submit an application for membership. The process involves attendance at a free evening orientation (New Member Class) whereby those desiring to be listed as partners “Breathing the Mission,” discuss the tenets of Science of Mind and the functioning of the Center.  At the completion of the evening, an application and a membership (pledge) card are submitted.  On the following Sunday, all new members are asked to rise and are introduced thusly, “These are the new members of our Center.  They care enough about our Center that they want to make a contribution to Its success.  They are stewards of the Center’s Vision and Mission.”;

3) Pledge your time, talent and treasure in order to assure the success of this spiritual community. This includes making a financial pledge to the Center each year. Membership is renewable each year with the submission of an annual pledge card.
