Spiritual Center in new location

Cameron Park’s Spiritual Center for Positive Living is experiencing the kind of pain every worship center hopes for, growing pains. This growth has recently inspired the congregation to spread its wings and find a bigger nest.

“When Sunday after Sunday we were setting up extra chairs in every open space, it became quite clear we needed a bigger building,” said the Rev. Pattie Weber, senior minister at the center.

Spiritual Center for Positive Living announces the grand opening of its brand new center — nearly doubled in size — located at 3104 Ponte Morino Drive in Cameron Park, custom built to serve the needs of this growing congregation and the community.

SCPL is an inclusive church, believing that all paths are valid and blessed. This “new thought” congregation has proven to be very active in the community, sponsoring events like Playing4Peace concerts and Love Your Pet Blessing and Expo. Proceeds from SCPL’s community-minded events help local organizations like United Outreach, the Grace Foundation, El Dorado County Food Bank and El Dorado Habitat for Humanity.

As part of its grand opening events, SCPL is offering a workshop with popular author, Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. Ruiz’s visit corresponds with the release of his newest book, “The Five Levels of Attachment — Toltec Wisdom for a Modern World.” Ruiz will hold an artist’s reception and workshop on Saturday, March 9 and he will be speaking at SCPL’s service on Sunday, March 10.

    I am pleased to report that El Dorado County Supervisor, Norma Santiago, will be conducting the ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30am, welcoming the expansion of the spiritual center and joining other community leaders in the ceremonies. Congratulations, Reverend Dr. Pattie Weber, on the expansion of your center.

    At the Spiritual Center, all are welcome. It's a place of great learning, healing and truth. More and more are finding their way to the Center as it becomes an increasingly bright beacon of light in our community. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful place right here in El Dorado County! Looking forward to the opening ceremony on Sunday at the new and custom, expanded location!!

    My life has changed dramatically since coming to SCPL. My career path has taken on a whole new direction and I finally feel like I'm going in the right direction. I love the people at the center and they are the "real deal". Rev. Pattie, Rev. Belinda and Rev. Sherry are really there to help transform peoples lives. It's not just talk, they care very deeply about their community.

    Finally, yesterday was the grand opening of Spiritual Center for Positive Living (SCPL), and it was a very exciting and sacred day. Starting with the ribbon cutting with Supervisor Norma Santigo and followed with a unique special service, where representatives of different paths were invited to speak to our community. The music in the service was exceptional and we were already overflowing, but that's to be expected at a grand opening. The service was led by our long standing Senior Minister, Reverend Dr. Pattie Weber. She was touching, exciting and as always, a proud leader standing in her own special sacred center of being. We as a community of kindred spirits love and are very blessed to have this new home! Please be aware that all people of all religious backgrounds are welcome to our "home" where you will be invited in with open arms and open hearts.
