Infants & Toddlers

It is never easy leaving your small child in the hands of people you don't know. This is why we do our best to provide a nursery that you can feel good about. Nursery care is provided by paid staff and volunteers. Our loving and nurturing nursery workers are there to care for your little one while you enjoy worshiping in our auditorium. We are serious about providing a place where you can feel good about entrusting us with your small child. This is why our staff members and volunteers are subject to criminal background checks. This is also why we use a secure check-in and pick-up system, because we care about you and your child. If a need arises, rest assured, you will be contacted by text.

We exist to encourage, challenge, and spread the Gospel throughout the youth of Los Angeles. This ministry consists of 6th through 12th graders.

We believe that God's Word changes and transforms us. No matter the age, this is the power and calling of the Christian life.

Popular culture can make it difficult to live for God, but as parents and leaders in the Church, we see it fit to challenge the youth to change their futures for Christ.

College & Young Adult Ministry

Our young adults attend the Sunday Evening Service. The goal through this relaxed and authentic worship gathering is to provide a place for connection with God and each other. Together we will celebrate who God is by singing, studying God’s word, communion, and coffee. Why coffee? Because having a cup of coffee with someone goes a long way. Together we seek after God in the midst of a world of opposing ideas. Our purpose is to find truth and bring truth to others.

Young Adults' Service is at 6:00 pm, in the Fellowship Hall.

Contact Pastor London McBride for more info and/or questions.
