Annual HGSA Membership Meeting

Reminder to all HGSA members:
Annual meeting has been rescheduled for:
Sunday, September 13, 9 a.m.
Zoom instructions have been sent to all members.
If you need assistance or additional information, contact:
Rev. Dr. Marilyn Johnson-Kozlow


This week, Rev. Marreena Appleton brings us a message for the rescheduled HGSA membership meeting.

May you all be well, and we look forward to meeting you at the Grove again very soon!


Blessings to you all. The annual membership meeting at Harmony Grove is being held on Sunday and with that comes the election for some of our Board members. So instead of posting a talk as the guest minister this Sunday, I'm asking that you close your eyes for a few moments, clear your mind, and then meditate or say a prayer to call on Infinite Intelligence, Divine Spirit and Creator, Mother/Father God, (whomever you choose to worship), your guides and teachers, the angels, and all beings of the light, and ask that they guide us in selecting those that will be for the highest and best of Harmony Grove.

I also request that you ask for the protection and healing of yourselves, Harmony Grove, your communities, and any others you can think of who are in need. In so doing, we all will be blessed with good energy and love. And know that you are receiving love and light from Harmony Grove and we look forward to when we can all be together again.

Believe in yourself and Spirit and your way will be true.

Reverend Marreena


Spiritualism began calling to Marreena in 2011. Since then, she has obtained healing and mediumship certifications, is an Ordained Minister, and sits on the Harmony Grove Board of Directors as the Financial Secretary. Marreena endeavors to be a conduit of Spirit in being a Lightworker and eagerly awaits the adventures ahead on this path she has chosen to take.

Please take a moment to consider how you might support HGSA in this time of great energy fluctuations. Times are particularly hard now with so many people out of work and we are unable to gather in person. If you are able, we greatly appreciate any and all contributions. It is easy to donate either a single time or on a monthly basis through the Donate button on our website. Whatever you are able to contribute, our collective support is bringing in the new energy to HGSA.

From the Harmony Zone

As we all navigate the changes to our personal and collective paths, we at Harmony Grove continue to send love, light, and healing to all of our members and community.

For now, HGSA remains closed, with in-person services and psychic fairs on hold.

We are working on a safe reopening plan.
Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our HGSA community.

We are working on a plan to bring a variety of activities online and to hold very small activities such circles, classes, private readings, and fundraisers in both virtual and physical space, with safety precautions in place.
Stay tuned for details!

We continue to conduct business as usual and are monitoring the office phone
and emails.

For everyone's safety, we request
that the public not visit the Grove until we announce
our reopening.

We will continue sending our weekly email with announcements and inspirational messages, along with daily Facebook and Instagram updates.

Please let us know of any special needs and concerns, of any ways that we might offer support, even from a distance.

May you all be well, and we look forward to meeting you at the Grove again very soon!

If you see flashing yellow lights, the road is not safe to cross!

Please use caution during heavy rains, there is a potential danger when the creek water is high enough to flow across the road.

There is a possibility that you will not be able to drive in —or out— if the creek waters have flooded the road.

Please call the office if you are still unsure about road conditions.
