Greetings and well met to all who have found this site.

So you are interested in witchcraft?  Just exactly what is it anyway?  Can Witches point their fingers and make stuff happen?  Or is it a wiggle of the nose?  Do they ride on brooms?


Wicca is a religion.  Although we are not primarily concerned with magic we do embrace it.  Wicca is about your place in the Universe.  It is about revering nature and the Universe and all of its forces.  

It is about learning and growing spiritually.  It is about becoming all you can be.  It is about learning from life's lessons.

As a religion, Wicca is a way of understanding and interacting with Deity and the Universe.  Wicca is a life-affirming path of growth.

Our religion is based on the reverence for Nature and her cycles and respect for the earth and all her creatures.  We are taught to see and revere all the forces of the Universe and to see these forces reflected all around us and within each person and thing. You will often hear us speak of "As Above, So Below."

We believe that Deity comes to each of us in a way we can best understand.  Each persons path to the Divine is unique and sacred.  No one has the right to criticize another's walk with the Divine. For this reason we do not proselytize (actively seek converts).  

We celebrate the cycles of the moon and the seasons of the earth.  Generally we see the Divine as having both a Mother and Father aspect.  

Lady of the Circle in the Oaks is a Proto-Temple of the Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca located in Thomasville, North Carolina. The Chief Priest is Rev. Chuck Chapman HP (Rev. Onyx)

The purpose of this Proto-Temple is to provide the Correllian and larger pagan community a public spiritual home here in Davidson county and surrounding areas.  We will provide religious and magical services to the best of our ability and within the bounds of our limited resources, in accordance to free will and with the highest good as its intent. Furthermore it is also available for interfaith education and support.

There are a few Pagan organizations in the surrounding counties that fulfill their niche, but to our knowledge there is no Pagan "church". 

We host public events for all eight Wiccan Sabbats.  We also host an annual "Pagan Potluck Picnic" which is held around Samhain.

For our members we hold Full Moon Esbat Rituals and classes in various topics presented by members of the organization.  Rev. Onyx HP also mentors and trains aspiring initiates in the Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca.

The Arch-Priest of the Correllian Nativist Tradition (M. Rev. Don Lewis HP) has been quoted as saying "Correllianism is a lens through which other beliefs may be viewed."
