Founded in 1911, Mission Hills United Church of Christ
has celebrated its 100th Anniversary, culminating in a Centennial
Celebration on October 22, 2011. We
are a congregation of the
of Christ whose heritage
dates back to the Pilgrims who made their
way to this country seeking religious freedom and the ability to
self-govern within each congregation. Religious freedom, questioning
faith, spiritual inquiry, continuing progressive interpretation of the
scriptures, and inclusive fellowship are all hallmarks of our
congregation. We welcome all people to join us for worship and
fellowship. As our by-line states, “No matter who you are or where you
are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”
We worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00. Child care is provided at each of our services. A variety of educational programs are available for adults and Sunday school is offered to children during morning worship. We are located on the corner of Fort Stockton Drive and Jackdaw Street in Mission Hills – San Diego, 92103. You can contact us online or by calling 619.296.2169.
In addition to worship and fellowship, we are a mission oriented congregation. Our hope is to leave the world a better place than when we arrived. Feeding America, El Nido shelter for abused women and children, Esperanza building projects in Tijuana, Special Delivery food service for those living with HIV/AIDS and cancer are just a few of the ongoing mission outreach efforts. We believe it is important to say what we believe and also to live it through our actions.
We are an “Open and Affirming” congregation which means we welcome everyone seeking a spiritual home with a special outreach to LGBT persons. You will find that ours is a safe place to learn, to question, and to grow. As an ONA congregation we insist that LGBT people are equal with all others and are full participants in the work and worshipping life of the church.
We are a multi-generational, multi-racial, multi-cultural congregation. Our pews are filled with a diverse group each espousing varying theological and ideological perspectives. In addition, ours is a child-friendly congregation. Children are not only welcome here but are encouraged to participate in the worship and educational aspects of our community life. It is not uncommon for at least 25 children to come running forward for “their time of the worship service” when the pastor offers a children’s message specifically designed for them.
We hope you will join us as we journey together seeking wholeness and spiritual fulfillment.
Mission Hills United Church of Christ is an Open and Affirming
congregation whose primary purpose is to proclaim and extend God's
extravagant welcome to all people. We are a church family committed to
nurturing spiritual growth by providing a safe and welcoming worship
with fellowship experiences for all to share. We respect the many and
varied faith backgrounds of those who worship with us. We support peace,
justice, and equality in our community, the nation and around the world.
We welcome and celebrate all who seek the experience of God's
unconditional love regardless of their ability, age, cultural
background, economic status, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race,
religious heritage, or sexual orientation. All are welcome at the Table
and into the full life and ministry of our church. We believe that the
greatest commandments are to love God with all your heart, mind, and
soul; and to love your neighbor as yourself.
