We are Sierra Madre's village church, where all are welcome - from "town" and beyond. We are a place to meet God and your neighbors, serving Christ today for those who will know and serve Christ tomorrow.
We offer praise and thanksgiving to God through a variety of ministries, including worship, fellowship, formation, pastoral care, outreach, and by being present in the larger church and our community.

Message from Fr. Michael:
This Sunday at the 10:15 service, we look forward to the choir and Dr. Deb Huffman offering the anthem “One Faith, One Hope, One Lord.” Preaching at both services will be Pastor Josh.
AT PRESENT… We are not expecting a change to the County of Los Angeles Public Health Department’s directives. This could change as the Omicron variant spreads, and we will pivot to be in compliance if needed. Be assured that your clergy, and all of our parish staff members are fully vaccinated, and we strongly encourage everyone who is able to be fully vaccinated. We continue to be wearing masks at Eucharist until further notice. Your patience is appreciated. Please know that the health and safety of our congregation is our primary concern. We certainly understand if people want to stay home and participate online via Facebook.
Both of our Sunday services will be live streamed on Facebook Live. It is our intention to keep the remote option for joining our worship for the foreseeable future.
