A Course in Miracles


A Course in Miracles study group
Sundays at 9am on the 3rd floor, in the Tower.

You are invited to join like-minded new and perhaps old friends as we each climb our spiritual ladder of love, peace and joy utilizing "A Course in Miracles" as one of our spiritual guides.

A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy.
