Spend Sunday mornings with a church that shares your values!
Please join us Sunday, January 21st at 3:00 PM at The Temecula Masonic Center for Pastor Debbie Rice's Installation as UCV's Called Minister. There will be several colleagues from both the UCC and DOC Regional Offices in attendance. Rev. Susan Gonzalez Dewey will be presiding. Come help us celebrate this wonderful step in Pastor Debbie's professional career and the next step in UCV's path into the future!
Come as you are!! We are a casual church and we are more interested in you than what you might be wearing. Also, you are welcome to sit wherever your heart desires. We feel we are the best kept secret in the Valley.
United Church of the Valley values spiritual growth, education, environmental harmony, inclusion, interfaith understanding and social justice because we believe we are called to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ in the present age. We listen for the voice of a still speaking God and in all things seek to understand the will of a just and loving God.
Children are invited to Sunday School and a play area for our youngest allows parents to still participate in the service. After worship, join us for refreshments and conversation so we can all get to know each other better.
We are proud to say you will find all types of people at UCV: dedicated leaders, faithful followers, questioning hearts, lost sheep, and vibrant, imaginative personalities. UCV is not a place for spectators! It is a place for team members. We want you to be part of our amazing church community Learn, serve and grow with UCV!
Where we worship...
At UCV, we understand that a church is a group of people, not a building. We are a congregation that has worshipped in several buildings since our founding, seeking facilities that suit our present needs. Currently, we worship at the Temecula Masonic Center, 27895 Diaz Rd, (the white building with a blue awning) across from the Temecula DMV. (Enter in back from side street, Via Dos Picos.) Doors open at 9 a.m., worship begins at 10 a.m. and all are invited to stay for fellowship afterward, around 11 a.m.
