"As the sunflower turns its face to the light of the sun, so Spiritualism turns the face of humanity to the light of truth."
The First Spiritualist Church of Erie began its journey in 1868 when local families donated the property to the community. One year later, in 1869, the community came together and built the building to use as a community gathering place. Community events such as the cigar social and chicken and biscuit dinners were held here. Later the building became a United Methodist Church and remained as such for many years. Although it did not begin as a Spiritualist church, it eventually evolved due to our communities need for a meeting place. Our church has been a spiritualist church since 1996.
Over the years, many leaders have guided our church and its members, eventually to lead us where we currently are. We are an independent spiritualist church and favor no denomination, we welcome all. Our church is a meeting place for us to learn and grow, to become stronger in the principles which structure our faith, demonstrate our mediumship and healing, hold classes ans workshops and build our fellowship among members.
We invite you to join us as we allow "the spirit to move us" during our journey in this lifetime. We look forward to meeting you.
