Burning Bowl Ceremonies

The "Burning Bowl" service is held on the first Sunday of the year. At this service, there is a symbolic releasing of what we wish to let go of before we move into the new year. It is written on a piece of paper and then dropped into a large bowl or container which contains fire. Participants let go of such things as feelings of anger, unforgiveness, unhealthy habits, relationships, etc. Cost for Ceremony – part of the Sunday Service.

White Stone Ceremonies

The idea of the White Stone ceremony comes from Revelation 2:17: "I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it." Each person is presented with a white tile from Jerusalem and during the course of meditation in service, the person asks for guidance on what our word will be for the year. The word is then written on a white tile and the person keeps the tile as a reminder of the word. Cost – White Stone Ceremony is part of the Easter Sunday Service.
