Deepings, Ruhi, Classes, Firesides ... well services can be a strong term. But these are essential functions offered by any Bahá’í community and ours is no different. 

'    Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all. The Importance of Deepening our Knowledge and Understanding of the Faith the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths. 

    Take heed that ye do not vacillate in your determination to embrace the truth of this Cause—a Cause through which the potentialities of the might of God have been revealed, and His sovereignty established. 

    With faces beaming with joy, hasten ye unto Him. This is the changeless Faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future.
    Let him that seeketh, attain it; and as to him that hath refused to seek it—verily, God is SelfSufficient, above any need of His creatures.'   ~Bahá'u'lláh, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, pp. 85-86

Why we Deepen

Deepening is an informal Bahá'í gathering for the purpose of delving into a topic, writing, prayer, communication, history that is of the Bahá'í Faith.

Why we Fireside

An informal Bahá'í gathering held for the purpose of discussing the Bahá'í Faith and sharing its teachings. A meeting, usually held in a person's home, for the purpose of discussing the Bahá'í Faith at an introductory level, it is attended by Bahá'ís and non-Bahá'ís and usually includes hospitality. It is a deepening of Faith that happens to have non-Bahá'ís present.

Why we Ruhi

The purpose of Bahá'í study circles is to provide participants with the knowledge, spiritual insights and skills to enable them to contribute to the betterment of society, starting with their own neighborhood. This is done through systematic study of a sequence of courses based on the Bahá'í Writings using the courses of the Ruhi Institute.
