Be the Church

BE THE CHURCH

Protect the environment.  Care for the poor.

Forgive often. Reject racism.

Fight for the powerless 

Share earthly and spiritual resources.

Embrace diversity. Love God. Enjoy this Life.


The theme for St. John’s UCC, Fullerton for 2019 is “Be The Church.” We will be explaining more during the upcoming months but the idea is that each of us must Be The Church. This occurs when we are together but we also go into the world where we must Be The Church. How will you Be The Church this year? How will God make a difference through the willingness of each member at St. John’s. Start visioning on how each of us can embrace this Be the Church movement.
