THANK YOU * THANK YOU * THANK YOU
Thank you to everyone who donated to A Place To Be on
GivingTuesdayNow! - A Global Day of Unity
We asked and you responded! Because of you, we exceeded our goal by OVER 50% and raised OVER $1,500!! Thank you just doesn’t seem enough. I am blown over by your generosity and humbled by your support of our mission. Because of you, seekers around the world have access to prayer opportunities, book discussions, retreats, spiritual resources and Scripture studies not to mention the ability to connect and converse with other inter-spiritual seekers. When we are allowed to gather in person, we will still be able to offer the online connection to those distance seekers that we have gotten to know. This is possible because of you and there are not enough words to express my gratitude! Thank you!
If you didn’t get a chance and would still like to donate, please visit our website at www.aplacetobesc.org.

Faith communities throughout the area are hosting Online services and faith sharing opportunities! We have posted many of them here.
In accordance with the Governor's Safer at Home order, ALL in-person group events are canceled until further notice.
We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience, but feel it is the most responsible action to take in the best interest of all of our friends and the community at large. We will miss our gatherings very much and will be holding you all in prayer!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with ANY needs, even if you just crave a listening ear. We have built some incredible relationships with people and organizations throughout our communities and if we cannot provide you with what you need, we can certainly help you find a path that can.
In the meantime, we would like to encourage all of our friends to consider those in their lives who may be most vulnerable and check in with them. Those who are out of work or do not have the option to stay home, elderly who rely on various programs for sustenance and socialization, children who are out of school and parents struggling with childcare, and all those with already compromised immune systems will all need more community support during this difficult time. Additionally, food pantries, meals on wheels, schools, churches and other organizations may be in need of extra donations and volunteers to keep up with the increased demand. Let's work together to make sure nobody falls between the cracks as we all adjust to this new reality.
Please remember you are never alone! Call us if there is anything we can do to help you or anybody in your life during this difficult time: 262-277-1928.
A collision of opposites forms the cross of Christ.
One leads downward preferring the truth of the humble.
The other moves leftward against the grain.
But all are wrapped safely inside a hidden harmony:
One world, God's cosmos, a benevolent universe.
APTB Leadership Retreat
On a cold Saturday in January, A Place To Be Leadership Team gathered to pray, reflect, and discern about our own spirituality as well that of the Center. As we shared our hopes for A Place To Be, words and phrases were collected that became our Vision for the future. We would welcome your input! What word or phrase would you like to add to the list?
