Local High-School Class Visits the Scientology Information Center

On Friday, February 19th Twenty-five students from a local private school visited the Scientology Information Center to learn more about Scientology.

While the Scientology Information Center has hosted close to 7,000 visitors including those from various schools for religious studies classes since opening on July 11th 2015, this was its first high-school class visit.

The students watched videos covering, “Inside of a Church of Scientology”, “The Eight-Dynamics (parts of life)” and the meaning of the Scientology Cross, and other basic symbols and concepts. A few of those questions were, “Does someone have to be a Scientologist to study or use Scientology?” and “Does Scientology have confessionals?”

“Like any religion, Scientology has fundamental beliefs, its own theology, and the members are looking to understand life, their own spirituality and increase their understanding of their relationship with the Creator”, stated Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Information Center, “This center is open so that anyone can find out about those basic concepts themselves.”

The Information Center has 4 interactive audio/visual displays which contain over 300 videos. These include a brief overview of the life and legacy of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard the founder of Scientology.

The center is open daily, 10am-10pm.  It is located at 500 Cleveland Street in the Historic Clearwater Building.

The center hosts a variety of receptions for local groups and organizations, and makes its conference room available to social, civic and nonprofit groups.

One of the responses of the students best summed up the experience of the class, “I liked learning about some of Scientology’s most basic ideas.

I also learned how to explain Scientology to other people who don’t know what Scientology is. Everything the manager covered was easy to understand.”
