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 @ 10am

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.

Current Sermon Series

During this continued season of safer-at-home we’re gathering digitally for worship each Sunday @ 10 am. Our current sermon series is Glittering Vices. We’re exploring the seven deadly sins and the ways that they can slowly break us down from the inside. The deadly vices are: envy, vainglory, sloth, avarice, anger, gluttony, and lust. This isn’t to be negative. It’s so we can understand what it is that might be holding us back from being that person who God is calling us to be. It’s so we can apply the right antidote for what’s ailing our personal and spiritual growth.
