Pastor Donald B. ShenkWe invite you to worship with our faith community. We are a close-knit group of families, neighbors, and friends who strive to discover God’s direction for our lives. We encourage searching minds and spirits as we celebrate together our faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, through the guidance of the Holy Scriptures. Emphasizing individual choice and conviction, members follow the Word of God according to the dictates of their own consciences. Our church is called “Congregational”, reflecting our heritage in the New England Pilgrim experience in which local congregations retain control of their own decisions and direction. We are also a member church of the United Church of Christ denomination, which is dedicated to realizing God’s just and loving purpose in the world.

Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter

Join us for our services of Holy Week this month, starting off with Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, April 14th. There will be a palm branch for everyone to carry and wave in honor of the Christ AND we will have a very special celebration as we baptize our newest and youngest attendant, Miss Eliza Cameron!

As is our tradition, we will be joining with our friends from our sister UCC church, Montebello Plymouth, for our Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services this year.

On Thursday, April 18th we will enjoy a soup supper provided by our friends at Montebello Plymouth (144 S Greenwood Ave, Montebello, CA 90640) beginning at 6pm before moving into their Sanctuary for a worship service at 7pm. Our friends from the Los Angeles Filipino American UCC in Eagle Rock where Rev. Dr. Art Cribbs is the pastor will join us. If you would like to ride in a carpool to Montebello, please be in our church parking lot no later than 5:30pm.

The next day, Friday, April 19th, we will host a service of worship commemorating Good Friday at 7pm (no meal is included) here at San Marino.

Easter Sunday arrives on April 21st this year and the celebration will be joyous and uplifting with our United Voices choir and our magnificent musicians, Albert Mendoza & Murray Middleman leading us in music for this most wonderful day of the Christian year.
