ROOTED is not a program, seminar or life-long small group; ROOTED is a catalyst for life change. ROOTED provokes questions and conversations that are designed to help us find ourselves in God’s story. Rooted is a means to further you walk and our walk together as disciples of Jesus! 

You won’t want to miss this life-changing experience connecting you with God, the church and your purpose. Come by the table on Sundays to hear exciting stories about ROOTED and pick up a postcard to share with others. To register click on the link:


SUNDAY Morning & Afternoon: 

Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:  We are taking a break until further notice.  This group normally meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room.  When we begin to meet again, you are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests.  FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well.  - Pre-service Prayer Group


Grief Share Series: Starting Sunday, January 14, 2024 from 1:30 to 3:00PM in the Conference Room off the church parking lot. Karl Fink will lead the group. If you are experiencing grief in any way, shape, or form, or if your grief has been buried for quite some time, please make an effort to attend this series. There’s a nominal fee for the materials, which will be discussed at the first meeting. Griefshare is a 13-week video-based series where we watch and discuss, as people feel comfortable. If you have questions or concerns, contact Karl at or call his office at 562.421.4711 extension 19. God’s Peace.


MONDAY Evening:

Men’s Bible Study Fellowship:  You can learn more at the BSF website:    For me, this was a life changing study; in fact, the BSF bible study impacted my Christian walk more than other Christian endeavor. If you think you would like to know more, please feel free to contact me.  - Don Baldwin



Men's Morning Bible Study:  We meet on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30AM in the Parish Lounge.  Feel free to bring a beverage, something to eat, and your mask to wear as we study God‘s Good Word, fellowship, & pray together.  If you have any questions or concerns, kindly contact Karl Fink,  


Women’s Thursday Morning Study:  Come one. Come all.  The Women's Thursday Morning Bible Study will resume this Thursday, September 28th at 9:30-11:00AM in the Parish Lounge, and you are invited to attend. We will be studying the book, "Anxious for Nothing" by John MacArthur. Along with this book, we will study some of the attributes of our wonderful God. This is a great way to learn about God, make lasting friendships, and stop fearing the craziness in our world. Contact Meg Velez if you have any questions. Call the church office (562) 421-4711 for Meg’s contact information.
