Our Spiritual Community
Our Spiritual Community
Wayfarers Chapel is an open and affirming ministry of the Swedenborgian Church of North America. We offer equal blessing and support to all people regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, national origin, religious background, or chosen spiritual path. We are a diverse group of spiritual seekers who honor the right of every individual to find their own spiritual path. We are always open to learning from each other and from other religious and spiritual traditions.
Wayfarers Chapel is a haven for seekers who share Emanuel Swedenborg’s quest for a religion that interconnects all of life, and for a system that allows reasoned questioning of life’s deepest religious issues. The Swedenborgian Church encourages inquiry, respect for differences, and acceptance of other traditions of life and religion. Thus, Wayfarers Chapel, open to all who are seeking a place for meditation, spiritual renewal and refreshment, or an open and inclusive worship experience, reflects fully the philosophy of the denomination which encourages and embraces all seekers and wayfarers on life’s journey.
There is intentionally no official congregational membership at Wayfarers Chapel, so that it remains a place that is open and welcoming to all wayfarers. But many people have made Wayfarers Chapel their spiritual home. Our spiritual community comes together in worship every Sunday at 10am and every Wednesday at 12noon. After the service many stay for fellowship, classes, discussions, special events, and to volunteer for special services.
For more information, we invite you to join us for a Sunday Service at 10am or a Wednesday Prayer Service at 12noon!
