Awakening to Who You Really Are with Rev. Elzia Sekou

Now more than ever we are asking ourselves, "Who am I really?" and "Why am I here?" There is an internal yearning to answer these questions. Join Rev. Elzia Sekou this Sunday, June 11th, as he explores these questions and more on what it mean to be "Awoke." How do you know if you are "Awake" and what’s required to wake up if you are not? Now is the time to Awaken to our True Selves and become aware of our Divine nature and purpose in life.

All are welcome. Stay for our community lunch directly afterwards! We'll also have an in-person Deep Dive at 12:30 pm with Rev. Elzia Sekou to explore the Sunday message further.

If you are unable to physically attend, we will also live-stream our gathering on our Facebook page starting at 10:30am MT. Make sure you turn on notifications for Althea on Facebook so you can be notified as soon as we go live. During the gathering, we invite you to submit your prayers, comments, and feedback.
