Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00am for an inclusive, family-friendly, multicultural, musical celebration of Christianity which blends the traditional with the contemporary. We pray, sing, share joys and concerns, listen to Scripture’s wisdom, and ponder how God is still speaking to us today. The Pastor’s Message brings scripture passages into conversation with contemporary life, challenging and inviting personal and collective responses. “Feasting with God” Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. Sunday bulletins, written copies of the Pastor’s message, and a large projection screen help engage friends and visitors in the service.
Candle tables for adults and children (with electric candles) invite moments of silent prayer or remembrance at any time during the service. A children’s table gathers the young ones around with activities until the children’s message time. Indoor gardens enhance the sanctuary space with sunlight and plant life.
An outdoor Peace Garden surrounding a Peace Pole inscribed with messages of peace in 12 languages is the center for outdoor peace vigils. Special services during the year include Ash Wednesday, Good Friday Ecumenical Gathering, Christmas Eve Candlelight, Taize Song and Prayer, and more.
Our Music Director, Aaron Foley, is a multi-talented, dynamic leader, and vocalist. He is accompanied by a gifted pianist, Geoff Merrill, who annually performs classical concerts in Italy as well as here in Diamond Bar. The choir performs each Sunday except during the summer when special music is planned. Music selections include contemporary arrangements as well as classic hymns. In addition, the worship music is enhanced by our Spirit Band. They are a lively group of talented musicians who begin each service with 3 spirited songs inviting hand-clapping and children dancing.
All children and youth are always welcome in worship! Following the Children’s Message time, they attend age-appropriate Sunday school classes, rejoining the congregation for the closing Benediction.
We believe strongly in leading by example and mentoring our youth to grow into strong, confident, spiritual adults who have the strength of character to overcome life's challenges.
We want to get to know each other better. And we want to get to know you! Our church family is in touch throughout the week and is always available for one another.
After Sunday service, coffee, donuts, and special treats and refreshments are served on the patio. It’s a great time to talk and to relax with friends.
Many come to bring their clothes to church and not themselves. Come as you are. We are an informal and casual group so please dress comfortably and be yourself!
