Journey

We have found that spirituality is more of a journey than a destination. We go, because God goes with us.

Include

We feel called to include across all borders and divisions. We have experienced the welcome of grace and believe that it is for everyone.

Love

We see God’s love all around us and are exploring what it means to become relentless practitioners of love.

Sundays

Come as you are.  There is no dress code.  Our gathering takes place in a space that is comfortable and relaxed.  You can grab a coffee or pastry while the children connect with one another in the Prayground, a sacred space just for them.  We will pray together, sing together, read Scripture together, reflect together.

Small Groups.

We think spiritual growth happens best when you are journeying along with others in authentic and thoughtful relationship.  Groups meet in homes, coffee shops, and at the church.

Service.

We believe God is in the process of healing the world and that we are invited to participate in this work.  We do this through our service together.

Connection.

We are part of a larger community that is the First United Methodist Church of Escondido.  We have a traditional service as well as a Spanish language service plus a new and inclusive worship gathering in North County, SD.

Origins. Exploring our story. We are narrative creatures. That means that we are deeply shaped by stories, both those told to us and those told by us. These stories shape us. They shape who we are, how we act, and what we desire. This September and October, we will explore our first story. The story of creation. We will ask together how this story shapes us as people of faith and hope and love.
