Church History

Progressive Spiritualist Church of Indianapolis received its charter (No. 29) in 1913 from the Indiana State Association of Spiritualists. Services were held for many years in the church building located at Park Avenue and St. Clair Streets, (the site of the Phoenix Theatre) during which time the organization became incorporated under the laws of the State of Indiana.

On September 13, 1927 the First Spiritualist Church of Indianapolis and Progressive Spiritualist Church consolidated to form a single church to be known as Progressive Spiritualist Church. The church moved to new quarters in 1968 at 3721 North Delaware, remaining until 1974 when space at 1008 West 64th Street was leased. In the spring of 1976, Progressive Spiritualist Church purchased the building at 6225 Carrollton and converted it for church use. In April of 2010, the building on Carrollton was sold and in May the church held its first services in its new/current home at 2201 E. 54th Street.

In October of 2013, Progressive Spiritualist Church celebrated its Centennial. We are looking forward to and planning for another great century!
