The Ascension of Abdu’l-Baha will be commemorated at 1 am on Sunday, November 27th at the home of one of our Believers. If you are interested in attending, please send us a note for more information.
On Friday, November 25 at 11am, Friends will gather to celebrate the Day of the Covenant at the Baha'i Center in Hixson. Simply put, the Day of the Covenant is a commemoration of Baha’u’llah’s appointment of His eldest son, Abdu’l-Baha as his successor. Abdu’l-Baha played a crucial role in guiding the early Baha’i community and ensuring that the followers of the Baha’i Faith remained united, rather than fragmenting into different sects. More information about this important Holy Day celebration can be found below.
One aspect of being a Baha'i is celebrating the contributions of its believers. Last night, the community gathered to honor the loving contributions of Steve Hampton, a long-time member of our community. Friends gathered from as far away as Atlanta to honor Steve in a celebratory roast and potluck dinner. Good times were had by all.
This past Sunday, the Chattanooga Bahá'ís and Friends from neighboring communities attended a quarterly reflection gathering for the purpose of developing plans of action for community-building activities, strengthening patterns of action and organizing to meet the goals set forth in the current Five Year Plan. The program started with a brief devotional and lunch was provided by the Local Spiritual Assembly.
Friends lovingly consulted on successes in the past, evaluated opportunities in the future and focused on plans for individual commitment over the 3rd cycle of the Five Year Plan.
A separate program was held during the reflection gathering for the Junior Youth which built upon previous activities that focus on spiritual development, education, fellowship and service activities.
Feel free to download the reflection gathering program in the link provided below.
