A Meditation Service is held on Sunday morning from 10:00-10:40 a.m.

A Readings Service is held from 11:00 a.m. to noon. Readings from scripture and the works of Paramahansa Yoganananda alternate with brief periods of chanting and meditation.

Our Sunday School is offered on the second and last Sundays during the Readings Service and is available for children age 4 and up. (With parental supervision, toddlers are welcome.)

The Long Meditation Service is held from 6:00-8:00 p.m., extended to 9:00 p.m. on the last Sunday of the month. The long meditation begins with group practice of the SRF Energization Exercises and ends with a Worldwide Prayer Circle service.

On the third Sunday of each month, the long meditation service is preceded by a Kirtan from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. Please join us for this joyous event!

Vegetarian potluck social is held on the last Sunday of every month immediately following the 11:00 a.m. service.


An SRF Lessons Study Group is held on Thursdays from 7:00-7:45 p.m. Participants take turns reading aloud from the lesson of the week, pausing for brief periods of meditation to better absorb the spiritual truths expressed. Please bring your own copy of the lesson for the week and if you are a newcomer, bring either your Lessons card or Kriyaban card due to the confidential nature of the Lessons.

Meditation Service is held following the Lessons Study from 8:00-9:00 p.m. The Meditation Service ends with a Worldwide Prayer Circle service.
