Stephanie Toon


Stephanie was a United Methodist minister for 18 years serving churches in Dallas, Costa Mesa, Orange and Murrieta. Her passion in ministry is social justice. She has gone on over 30 mission trips in her life. Her current ministry is teaching history at a Title 1 high school in Perris. She’s married to Adriana and has two kids; Lily (7) and Lincoln (4 months). Her current hobby is napping since she hasn’t slept through the night in 4 months. 

Rev. Dr. Sharon Graff


Sharon Graff is an ordained UCC minister, raised in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in nearby Hemet.  She has served several SoCal congregations and para-church organizations in her 35 years of ministry, including 11+ years as Pastor and Teacher of the Redlands United Church of Christ. 

Sharon is currently living into “semi-retirement” by starting up a spiritual coaching business—www.SabbathPoint.com—and enjoying restful quiet time at the beautiful mountain geodesic dome home she shares with her husband, Dr. John Sweeney.

She began her ministry in 2002 at First Christian Church of Louisville, where she served as Youth Leader and Elder. She joined the staff of FCC in 2015 and served as the Associate Minister for Senior Adults and Guest/Member Connections. After completing the Pastoral Ministry Certificate Program at Lexington Theological Seminary in 2016, she was commissioned into ministry by the Kentucky Region of The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

In addition to sharing in the duties of preaching and pastoral care, Sandy serves as Coordinator for Ecumenism and Outreach. She is a member of the Interfaith Council of Murrieta and Temecula Valley, where she enjoys building relationships with diverse faith communities.
