Welcome to Sarasota Center of Light!

Welcome to Sarasota Center of Light, formerly known as "The Shrine of the Master Church". Celebrating 66 years!

The Sarasota Center of Light is also a place of learning with the principles of life taught in the celebration service talks and through our formal education program with classes taught throughout the year.  Education is key to helping people master the challenges and experiences of life on earth.  One of our goals is to help people to develop the tools that will help them to better understand and interact with life in a positive and productive manner.

Another important aspect of the Sarasota Center of Light is our spiritual family which is composed of the members and friends of the church. Our goal is to foster an environment of love and helpfulness while still respecting individual privacy and power of choice. Social functions such as church dinners, coffee hours and receptions are held on a regular basis to foster fellowship and friendship.
