Rev. Karen Lindquist and SisWinKlae Laurel Boucher
co-create the morning worship
focused on the spiritual discernment for the month:
"The Hoop of the Nations."
Our Spiritual Discernment for 2015:
"Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor"
The vision and inspiration is grounded in the prophecy:
“When the earth is suffering and we see our children suffering
there will come a generation that will restore Honor for all people.”
In May we explore The Hoop of the Nations.. A group of villages that share common cultural and traditional values makes up a nation. Leaders represent the need for balance and wisdom so that different nations may live in peace. Ideally, Leaders bring forth the values of tradition and the wisdom of time with the vision of a future of peace and honor for all. We celebrate leaders at every level who represent these qualities. We celebrate Communicators and speakers to all tribes at all levels.

In March 2012 the Interfaith Community Sanctuary initiated a Capital Fundraising Campaign to cover current and anticipated major expenses to maintain our historic building…our unique sacred space. To cover current and anticipated expenditures plus provide a reasonable reserve fund for unexpected emergencies.
In 2014 we were blessed with a grant that allowed us to replace the roof but the exterior of our historic building still needs repainting. Our almost 100 year old water line and the gutters and downspouts are also in need of replacement. In addition, we would like to provide a means of access for the disabled. All of these projects are expensive but necessary to maintain the integrity of our facility.
We are asking each and every friend and member of ICS to think hard about what this community means to you and to contribute something extra to support the Capital Fundraising Campaign. All donations to ICS are completely tax deductible. Any donation to the Capital Fundraising Campaign should be marked “Capital Fundraising Campaign” or ICS/CFC. Donations can be made by Credit Card or PayPal by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right or by mailing a check directly to the church at the address below. Thank you for your continued support!
