This church is one of the more popular churches in our area. So they must be doing something right!

Of course we have other churches in Pasadena: other denominations, and non-denominations, each with their own slightly quirky ways of looking at theology. But the bottom line is the same: to make us better people for each other & more acceptable to God, to say the least. So if you want to hear God, maybe God is trying to speak your language. God is patient with us, His door always open. We not so much.

You may have to search in unusual places, search harder, or search a bit longer, but you will still find.
