The 2022 Harvest Season, Letter from Director

2022 Harvest Season

Dear Members and Friends of Fellowships,

It is with gratitude and excitement that Fellowships of the Spirit is about to enter its 35th year! From our humble beginnings in a living room on Library Street to our current facility, Fellowships has a wonderful home which houses our church and learning center, a library, a school for the training of ministers and those seeking their own personal spiritual development, through an array of in-depth trainings and workshops. We are truly grateful for all the support from our members and other generous patrons, for this growth is a direct reflection of the donations, both monetary and physical, made by all of you over these last thirty-four years. We are truly blessed!

We have been very busy retooling how we operate as with so many of us throughout the world. Along with cutting expenses to the bone, we are exploring multiple ways to be a source of inspiration, strength, and healing to support you individually and collectively in our greater community.

We have moved our office from Lily Dale to our reconfigured Library building, creating a campus presence on our existing lakeside property in Cassadaga; thus consolidating operations while reducing our monthly expenses.

For the past year and a half, the School of Spiritual Healing and Prophecy has been meeting online. We have learned a lot about what works well and what doesn’t. As a result, we have redesigned how we are scheduling so that the program is now a hybrid of in-person and online training sessions. We are continuing to explore new methods for teaching and learning and find it both challenging and exciting.

Many of you had joined us on Fellowships of the Spirit’s Facebook Live on Sundays at 6pm for our Inspirational Fireside Chats. For those who haven’t, please consider this a warm invitation to do so. The Fireside Chats will resume in January of 2022- through March on the first Sunday of the month on Facebook at 6pm. In April, we will resume our Sunday evening worship service at 6 pm on Facebook and perhaps in person as well, depending on the public health considerations.

We have an exciting line up of open seminars for the coming year, some of which will be in person, some online and some will be a hybrid. We look forward to having you joining us. Please check our website in January for the new offerings.

At this harvest season time of the year, we would appreciate your donating financial support so we can continue providing quality programs and services. I thank you in advance and am deeply grateful for your gifts of any size. Your donation will help advance Fellowship’s mission of spiritual development and self-discovery, so that we can continue to provide a place “your soul can call home.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and thus your contributions can be tax deductible. You can make your donation on our website or by sending your check to Fellowships of the Spirit, 282 Dale Drive, Cassadaga, NY 14718.

With your continued support we will confidently step into a future that brings the opportunity for spiritual growth and development to our community, our region and the world.

With Love and Blessings,

Foundational Pastor and Director
Elaine Thomas
