The Sequim Center for Spiritual Living's mission statement says it is a growing spiritual community expressing love and oneness with all while serving and supporting each other in living from Spirit.
The Rev. Lynn Osborne said the church's core beliefs are as follows:
• We believe in God, the one creative intelligence operating through the universe and operating throughout each person, now and always.
• We believe this perfect spirit operates upon a Law of Mind and creates our experience exactly according to our beliefs.
• We believe this perfect creative intelligence can be used by all people to produce health, abundance and love in mind, body and total life experience.
The center held its first service on Aug. 6, 1995, and meets at Pioneer Memorial Park, 387 E. Washington St., on Sundays.

Osborne founded the center under the name "Sequim Church of Religious Science." The name was changed to "Center for Spiritual Living" in November 2008 following changes within the parent organization.
Sunday services begin at 10 a.m.
Osborne said the center's Sunday services follow similar program formats as in traditional churches and are enhanced by contemporary music with uplifting, positive themes.
Lessons might include quotes ranging from biblical to contemporary writers such as Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Joel Goldsmith, Jack Kornfield and others.
Sylvia Boss, a concert pianist, and Joan Hathaway, a soprano, perform service music and often are joined by Tom Cunningham, a harmonica player.
The center has 65 members with about 45 people at Sunday services.
"A friendly team of volunteers makes sure services run smoothly to meet the needs of all who attend," Osborne said.
"Congregants enjoy the supportive fellowship they find on Sundays and at the same time are always open and accepting of visitors and newcomers from all walks of life."
Youth groups and child care are not in place at this time, but Osborne said she has a background of facilitating youth groups and gladly would meet this need if it arises.
• Special events take place during the year, either at the Pioneer Memorial Park facility or at the home of a church member. Call or e-mail Osborne for more information.
• The center is hosting an end-of-summer festival at Pioneer Memorial Park at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sep. 12. Festivities follow the weekly 10 a.m. service. Games and refreshments will be offered along with a silent auction. Raffle tickets are $2 and a TV is one of the many items available.
