Newcomer Info

Do we welcome everyone?
Absolutely! We are an inclusive community that welcomes all ethnicities, religious backgrounds, and sexual orientations. We celebrate and respect individual differences and similarities. Our spiritual community believes each individual has many gifts, that when shared, enhance all our lives.

What do we believe?
ICSC is centered upon a spiritual philosophy developed by Dr. Ernest Holmes in the 1920’s.

What would it mean if the thoughts we have actually influence what happens in our lives?

What if all thoughts, conscious or not, were shaping our world?

What if your destiny was totally in your own hands?

What if the quality of your life was determined by what you think all day long?

At Inspiration Celebration Spiritual Center we believe that our experiences are shaped primarily by our attitudes and beliefs and that our thoughts, conscious or not, are influencing our destiny and the quality of our lives. This means that we each have the power to control our present circumstances and achieve our heart’s desires.

World-wide, thousands of people have already transformed their lives through the application of the New Thought/ Religious Science philosophy. This teaching is apparent all over the place, such as films like ‘What the Bleep…’, ‘Conversations with God’ and ‘The Secret’, countless self-development books by well known authors, newly accepted therapies and even in some instances, extending to the business world. It is clear to anyone with knowledge of these teachings, that they are being used in many forms and that they work! If you are familiar with the work of: Louise Hay, Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Oprah Winfrey and Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith then you are already familiar with the ideas we believe and share.

“Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life” Here is an exciting idea and one that can lead to ‘miracles’ happening in every area of our lives.

What happens when I arrive?
You will be greeted at our welcome table, asked to sign our guest book, given a welcome packet and a name tag (optional), and directed to the hospitality table for some refreshments. We will likely introduce you to some of our members as well.

What happens during the service?
Our service lasts approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. We have music, readings, meditation, and a message from our speaker-of-the-day. Our messages encourage everyone to think for him or her self and become more aware of their own inherent power and their unity with all life. We end each service in a circle, symbolizing our connection as a spiritual community. After the service, we have refreshments and socialize.  Be sure to visit our community table. The community table has flyers, and information on upcoming socials, classes and events for you to plug into.

How do we support our children?

Children are always welcome to join us during service. As we attract more families with children, we will offer a separate program for them.


What should I wear?
We believe in being comfortable. Most members come casually dressed but some use our gathering as an opportunity to dress up a little.

Do I need to let someone know I'm planning to attend?                   

No. You may just show up! 

Will I be asked to stand and introduce myself? No.
