First Sundays of each month at LaPorte New Church we offer the community contemporary services which, as with all of its services, explore topics that impact our lives right here, right now. Sunday services begin at 10:00 a.m. at the church, 812 Indiana Avenue, across Maple Avenue from the Public Library. Guests are warmly welcomed.
Similar to the New Church’s former Health & Spirituality programs, First Sundays hold casual but meaningful discussions on relevant matters which affect our everyday lives.Life is often compared to a journey. We can shuffle our feet and mope about the path we’re taking, but anxiety and impatience don’t change our speed or route. Instead, we can enjoy the scenery, confident that the direction of the stream of Divine Providence will steer us toward a more beautiful vista.
The New Church is open-minded, understanding that even though we know there is one God over all, not everyone will have the same perception or experience of God. Coming from differing backgrounds and traditions, it’s completely reasonable that each of our paths have led us to our varying personal relationships with, and sense of, God.Here, all good and useful paths leading to God are valued.
