The Reunited Society of Believers


The Society of Believers is re-envisioning and rebirthing the faith, practices, and ideals of the Millennial Church aka the “Shakers” in an evolving, inclusive way.


Shakers, or the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Coming, likened their Divine-human relationship as children to a loving Mother and Father. 


They acknowledged that Gifts among the brethren and sistren were God-given and to be put to Good use. 


They created Ordered lives that harmonized work, worship, and family.  


Like the early Believers, we seek reverence for Life, and to live into the realm of Spirit in our day to day loving, struggling, and experiencing the Real within the messiness.

·     Welcome all who want to participate in a compassionate community devoted to cultivating our relationship with God and our Mother Earth;
