Ananda services are nonsectarian and open to all. We invite you to join us in celebrating and sharing the universal truths taught by Paramhansa Yogananda and expressed by his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda.  Included in the Festival of Light service are many elements that uplift our consciousness and awaken our highest aspirations. In the order within the service:

Opening prayer
Music by the Ananda Joy Choir
Devotional chanting
5 – 10 minute silent meditation
Affirmation
Short readings from the Bhagavad Gita and the Bible
Talk by the minister
Offering
Music by the Ananda Joy Choir
Festival of Light

The Festival of Light is an allegorical story of the soul’s journey away from its home in God and back to union and complete freedom in spirit.  At the end of the festival, you are invited to receive a blessing.

Sunday School is available for children ages 4 – 11 during this service. For parents with children younger than 4 we have a family playroom with audio and video feed of the service. Older children are invited to attend service with their parents.

 

 

Sing out with joy
