What Is A Prayer Partner and Where Do I Get One?
A Prayer Partner is someone who agrees to exchange prayers with you for an agreed upon period of time. A partnership can be formed for an initial period of time, for example six months, and then concluded or extended as desired.
Prayer Partners do not need to meet in person. You can exchange prayer requests on e-mail, or a weekly telephone call.
Some people prefer to talk on the phone, exchange prayer requests, and pray right there on the phone. Others prefer to exchange the prayer request on e-mail and go about praying in their own time and at their own pace.
Key elements to a successful prayer partnership is a regular schedule of meeting and exchanging prayers. Make a date once a week to connect and stick to it.
It is recommended that the partnership and meeting be restricted to the activity of exchanging prayer and praying and not be extended into socializing.

First Wednesday Service
First Wednesday services are a devotional evening of prayer, song, and music with Dr. Edward Viljoen and Muisic Director Christopher Fritzsche. On Wednesday, August 6, a part of the service will be devoted to presenting those new ministers in our movement, recently graduated with a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies, who have successfully passed their ministerial oral panels, held at our Center on the same day (August 6). We are confidently anticipating seeing three familiar faces among those being honored. Dr. Kenn Gordon, Spiritual Leader of Centers for Spiritual Living and Dr. John Waterhouse, President of Centers for Spiritual Living, will be participating in the ceremony.
Consider Becoming a Member
To assist you in making your decision, the Center offers free Membership Orientation Classes to introduce you to the structure and vision of the Center and the expectations and benefits of membership. Whether or not you become a member, you are welcome to attend these orientation classes.
My Personal Check List: Am I Ready?
1. I have completed the Religious Science Foundational Course or I have attended Services regularly (missing very few weeks) for six months or more.
2. I have served as a volunteer at the Center for Spiritual Living in the past 6 months.
(Although the above is not required for membership, it is strongly recommended that prospective new members take adequate time to learn about the Science of Mind and about the volunteer opportunities at the Center as a way of becoming familiar with the culture before committing to membership.
3. I have made, or I am planning to make, a pledge to contribute financially to the Center by completing a pledge card and by giving in an identifiable manner. (Financial contribution is a condition of membership. Annual pledge cards give you the opportunity to let the Staff and Board know what your approximate contribution for each calendar year will be. The amount of your contribution is personal to you and there is no minimum or maximum contribution.)
4. I am ready to commit to attending the Annual Membership Gathering which is the business meeting of the Center.
5. I understand that attendance at the three weekly Member Orientation Classes is mandatory.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member.
