God calls us to be a loving and growing church reaching out and sharing the Love of Christ in the community. We believe God is calling us to introduce Christ to those we encounter and to nourish them and ourselves in faith through his Word. We invite all adults to join us for a service of music, prayer, and God’s message on Sunday mornings starting each morning 10 am. After each service, coffee, juice and a delicious snack is shared in Gisler Fellowship Hall or the church courtyard depending on the weather.
Communion Sunday. On the first Sunday of each month we finish regular services with Communion. If you have accepted Christ or are thinking of dedicating your life to Jesus please come share in this special supper with us as we remember our savior. The Wine represents the blood and the bread represents the body of Christ.
The table of Holy Communion is Christ’s table, not the table of The United Methodist Church or of our congregation. The communion table is open to anyone who seeks to respond to Christ’s love and to lead a new life of peace and love, as the invitation to the table says.
Our Book of Worship says, “All who intend to lead a Christian life, together with their children, are invited to receive the bread and cup. We have no tradition of refusing any who present themselves desiring to receive” (page 29). This statement means that in practice there are few, if any, circumstances in which a United Methodist pastor would refuse to serve the elements of Holy Communion to a person who comes forward to receive it and Christ’s love in their life.
UMW United Methodist Women
The Women of our church understand the importance of maintaining and developing fellowship among our female members, the community of Huntington Beach and surrounding areas. Their dedication and participation in some of the mostly challenging local and global projects does not go unrecognized and we are encouraged by their ability to expand the body of Christ in our community church. The UMW meet monthly and they encourage all women to attend. If you are looking for prayer, female support and fellowship please stop by the church office or check the events calendar for their next meet up.
