“Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives.”
~We believe in the power of community to affect positive change.
~We encourage individual spiritual growth and a search for truth and meaning.
~We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
~We believe in spiritual diversity.
There are several ways to support A Church and it's mission to promote connection and provide an open space for nonprofits, civic groups and individuals working for positive change.

"My husband and I had our wedding reception at A Church this past September, and everything about it was perfect! The space is already beautifully decorated with local art, antique furniture, and holds a wonderful and warm atmosphere. The owners were incredibly easy to work with and helped make the planning process go smoothly. We were able to push the pews aside which created a spacious dance floor which we filled when the band we hired started playing. Our guests were able to mingle throughout the rooms inside as well as out on their patio. It never felt too crowded but also had a great intimate feel. We would highly recommend this space for any party, especially for a wedding reception!"
"Great event space. Great location in downtown Salida. Teen night and movie night are wonderful!"
