CHURCH OF THE PINES

Fort Smith, AR   |  www.church-pines.org

Mission

Church of the Pines was founded on December 21, 1986. We are ecumenical in scope and seek to help each person who comes to us to identify for himself that which is valid and real in his/her spiritual life, and then provide him/her with methods and processes for developing deeper and more esoteric understanding of those ideas and ideals. In this way, can a person not only experience tremendous spiritual growth for himself, but he is better able to communicate his beliefs and ideas to others through the living of his life. We seek not to simply build an organization, but to become an expression of Higher Will.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Church of the Pines holds regular Sunday Services at 11:00 a.m., and several times through the year, we hold Wednesday evening meditation services. From time to time, we offer classes and study groups on spiritual growth. We maintain a philosophical / spiritual lending library that is open to the public. This library, the Frances D. Still Learning Center, is a memorial to our founder who passed away in 2003. The purpose of this facet of our work is to provide a place for people to learn about world religions, philosophies, and cultures; science as relates to spirituality; inspirational biographies, fiction, poetry; personal growth; other sspects of spirituality. We believe that by looking beyond the worlds' chaos and finding strands of beauty in the world (in world cultures, religions, philosophies, nature, and inspirational writings), an environment is created for the growth of consciousness in the individual, which ultimately results in right human relations and right relations with the other kingdoms of nature. This library contains over 2700 books, in addition to audio/visual items to loan. Most items have been donated to the library (many are rare or out of print books), though the church occasionally purchases items, as well. It is open on Thursdays from 5:00 PM-7:00 PM, and Saturdays from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM. Church of the Pines has always held the philosophy that when someone comes to us in true financial need, we seek to help when funds are available. Church of the Pines is a member of the International Council of Community Churches. Our affiliation with this organization is an expression of our understanding of harmony and cooperation within the world of religious organizations, and we support the concept that this organization promotes.
