Note—there is no obligation or expectation for all those who attend to become members. The purpose is simply to help you explore the Faith and make an informed decision about where to worship and serve. 

topics covered:

  • The meaning and importance of church membership

  • Christian fundamentals and Reformed distinctives

  • History of this local church and the URCNA

reThink Apologetics Conference


Ideas have consequences

The ideas that you think are true will ultimately play themselves out in the way that you live. Every. Single. Day. We all live at the mercy of our ideas. That’s why the apostle Paul warns us not to be taken captive by the false views of the world (Colossians 2:8). Sadly, many Christians have been captured by the culture. Their thinking reflects the thinking of the society. Their worldview is no different from that of their unbelieving friends.

It's time to reTHINK

Stand to Reason Student Impact exists to provoke a new generation to rethink their worldview, recapture the truth, and then reengage the world for the cause of Christ. That’s why we’re putting on the reTHINK Apologetics Student Conference, designed for junior high, high school and college-aged students. And that’s why you need to be there.

Conference Dates & Details

September 22-23, 2017 in Costa Mesa, CA. A group from PURC is planning on attending. If you are interested in attending, please see Tom or Julie Riley for more information.

Men’s Forum

Beginning September 14th, we will begin having a Men's Forum on the 2nd Thurs. of each month (Sep-May). Still want to learn about being an Officer? Pastors Phil and Michael would be happy to meet personally with anyone who desires further training in the role and responsibilities of church officers. Please let them know if that's you!
