The Grand Prince Odeum at 201 Main St. in Winters is hosting two churches, one the Center for Spiritual Living, Davis (CSLD) at 10 a.m. on Sunday and the other the Church of the Rock in the afternoon.

The CSLD meets at 10 a.m. in the stunning building of the Grand Prince Odeum.  If starting the day positively is one’s goal, this is the way to do it. The CSLD is a multi-religious, spiritual gathering that celebrates life and the positive. Their vision is to “create an environment for all to realize the power of spiritual connection.” Their Sunday service is a powerful and life-affirming experience.

CSLD could not have a more inspiring setting than the Grand Prince Odeum (GPO), nor better acoustics. In the first service held two weeks ago, music director Billy Larkin masterfully played original spiritual compositions with a touch of Jazz. Heather Clark gave a stunning rendition of a song celebrating all the various ways people worldwide worship. The talk about blessings and how to embrace them by Rev David Clark, the Sr. Minister, was uplifting. In the second Sunday service, guest guitar player, Gary Weinberg, gave a lively rendition of several songs composed by Billy Larkin who is a fine composer and very inspiring.

“We are so blessed to have the Grand Prince Odeum as our new home! We look forward to getting to know our neighbors and becoming an active part of the Winters community.” the Reverend David Clark, Sr. Minister said.

The congregation formed over 25 years ago to serve the people of Davis and greater Yolo County. Several Winters residents were also part of the congregation before it moved to the GPO. Now that it is in Winters with a lovely auditorium and a cozy setting downstairs for fellowship after the hour service, the congregation is hoping to see new faces.

Certainly, it a good use of anyone’s time and a good antidote for the negativity that permeates our world presently. The church is worth attending for the music, the message of positivity in the talks by pastor Rev. David and the camaraderie of the congregation after the service.  To learn more about CSL Davis, visit their website at

Much good should come out of this group’s presence in Winters. This reporter will try to give you a sense of the second church in coming weeks.
