Imagine living your life fearlessly and powerfully, true to yourself in your work and relationships. You are the creator of your wonderful life - no longer a victim of circumstances like time, finances, a diagnosis, what people say or think about you or anything else. Now imagine a world where everyone’s experience is the same. That is what we are about at Abundant Life Spiritual Center. Real Peace.
We exist to unleash the divine authentic expression within and empower everyone to live abundant, amazing lives – lives of authentic self-expression, purpose, wholeness, creativity and love. We believe that's how we were created to live!

In the wake of the recent attacks in Paris, the world is in mourning. The lives of 129 people out for a night on the town were brought to an abrupt end at the hands of those who chose to wield fear. As you look upon those 129 individuals, allow yourself to fully feel the pain of it. Mourn in your own way and let your feelings be okay. Because they are okay.
Stay after service on Sunday, December 13, 2015 for an extended “Connection Café.” We will gather around the grand piano for some good old-fashioned Christmas caroling led by Matt Nelson on piano. Let Matt know if you have any favorites you want included. Bring some goodies to share too.
Grammy-nominated Matthew Santos returns again on Sunday, December 20 as our guest musical artist. Santos is a remarkable rock/folk artist with a large following. While he is widely known for his musical collaboration with Lupe Fiasco on the song Superstar, his original music penetrates the soul. Santos' voice is unlike any you have heard before and his music will surely move you. He has been a guest artist with us for the past two Christmas seasons singing "Christmas Song" by Dave Matthews and others.
Enhance your Christmas season experience this year by attending our spiritual Christmas Eve service on Thursday, December 24 at 5 pm. The traditional Christmas story will be told through a metaphysical lens with music that will move your soul. No matter your religious background, the symbols and meaning of this story will come alive in a personal way. As in past years, this service will be held in the beautiful sanctuary of First Church Christ Scientist, 155 Deerfield Road in Deerfield. We rent this space so that we can conclude with our traditional candle lighting ceremony as we experience the Presence of Divine Love awakening in the world and within us.
At Abundant Life Spiritual Center, you will find our Sunday gatherings to be upbeat and celebratory as well as contemplative and meaningful. Our music is contemporary and our minister's message is always thought-provoking, practical and inspiring. People who walk through our doors almost always comment on the loving energy they feel. We've even been told that our energy is at a palpably higher vibration than many much larger spiritual communities. Everyone leaves feeling good and equipped for the week to come.
