March 8, 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Salt Lake Center for Spiritual Living, known then as the First Church of Religious Science.
We would love to honor the anniversary with a big party like we did for our 40thanniversary but in our current situation that is not yet possible.
In honor of our anniversary, Rev. Donald Graves will offer our message on Sunday, March 7th.
We then hope by mid-summer to be able to have a celebration weekend with workshops and a big party.
If you would like to volunteer to serve on the committee to plan that celebration, please send an email to email@example.com.
Rob Eckman has graciously volunteered to head up that committee. First meeting is April 18 at 2:00 pm.
