Joining any spiritual community may seem like a simple and ordinary action but in may ways it is the most profound statement we can make toward healing ourselves and our world, for in this action we demonstrate our belief in the goodness of humanity.
We welcome your participation and are grateful you desire to support our all-volunteer spiritual community! We invite you to join us by becoming Friend, Member, and / or Root Steward, valuable commitments integral to our growth and stability.
Friends, Members & Root Stewards
Becoming A Friend
One way to support Interfaith Community Sanctuary is to become a Friend. You may not be ready to commit to membership and may just want to find out more about interfaith as a spiritual path. Also, you may already have an existing faith / spiritual community and while you support interfaith, membership in an additional community may not be at one with your beliefs. We respect and honor your spiritual path and openly welcome you into our community as a Friend. Friends are invited to fully participate in our circle dialogue discussions, retreats and gatherings. We value your unique perspective.
Becoming A Member
Another important way to support Interfaith Community Sanctuary is to become a Member. You will be joining with others who have consciously chosen to become more deeply involved in this committed community. Active Members participate in our Guiding Council, Spiritual Retreat, and annual Membership Celebration. These gatherings are created by Members, Officers and Ministers collaboratively working together within Cooperation Circles. Active Members have the privilege of casting a vote on important issues and after a year of active membership are eligible to hold an office.
Becoming a Root Steward
Root Stewardship makes it possible to support Interfaith Community Church by setting an intention to send a regular, monthly, tax-deductible financial gift to help with our operating expenses. Your financial gift grounds and stabilizes our community, preserves our future and assures that we will continue to grow and flourish. We invite you to email the ICS treasurer at: firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your intention to become a Root Steward.
