Ministry Programs

Youth Ministry
The Sunday School Coordinator works with a staff of dedicated teachers to ensure a quality program for younger children. The Minister of Children and Youth focuses on the jr. and senior high youth, with class after Children’s Time in worship and youth group activity after church. During one week in the summer, Vacation Bible School is offered to members and community children age 6-12.

Adult Education
Adult education is focused on six-week Lenten and Advent studies of relevant books or dvd lecture series. Recent topics include the Beyond Theology dvd series, Bart Erhman dvd series, The Children Are Free (book), and science and faith (excerpts from 5 books).

Women’s Ministry
Women’s Fellowship provides an opportunity for women to gather in support of one another in fellowship and spiritual growth. We meet monthly on the first Sunday of the month at 8 am for breakfast and meditation, discussion, and opportunities for service to the community. Women’s Fellowship has collected food, led worship service for UCC Women’s Week, planned the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Open and Affirming, made banners, and planned the annual Women’s Retreat.

Children’s Center (
The Children’s Center is an important mission of the church offering high quality, non-profit pre-school, kindergarten, and daycare to the community for over 40 years. The Center is professionally directed and staffed with outstanding teachers who stress learning for the whole child in a warm, caring environment. Visit the Center website above for more information.

Stewardship Ministry
The Stewardship Ministry provides guidance and direction for the responsible and faithful stewardship of all church resources. We plan and secure funds for maintenance and capital projects. Recently, projects were completed to upgrade the roof, parking lot, outdoor lighting and drainage, and windows and doors.

A natural labyrinth has recently been constructed by church members on the hill overlooking the church. The labyrinth provides a peaceful and meditative space. The ancient prayer form is symbolic of pilgrimage with the circular design leading one on a contemplative path to the God-center. The labyrinth is open to members of the church and the community.

Outreach Ministry - How We Serve Others
The Outreach Ministry discerns the needs of others in the community and world and facilitates our active, just, and charitable response to those needs. We partner with Inland Valley Hope Partners by donating food to the Beta Center Food Bank, joining the annual Walk for the Hungry, and providing meals to Our House Shelter. We provide meeting space for AA weekly meetings. We provide sanctuary rental to weekly SDA and monthly Hindu worship congregations. We adopt families for Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts. We sponsor a limited prison ministry and an overseas child. Click here for more.

Jesus Left the Building
On the fifth Sunday which occurs once every three months, the worship service is abbreviated, so that service projects may follow, which takes members out of the church building and into the community. Preparing a dinner meal for Our House Shelter, filling bags with rice and beans for the food bank, picking up roadside litter, painting rooms at the food bank are real examples.

Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM)
Our goal is to contribute 10% of the church income to Our Church's Wider Mission. This budgeted item provides basic support from United Church of Christ congregations for the Southern California Nevada Conference (SCNCUCC) and the National ministries of the United Church of Christ. Four denomination wide special offerings are also taken, one per quarter.
