Bible Study

Bible study is every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room on 1 Corinthians. First Corinthians is a rare window into the life and struggles of the first church. We will learn what some of the issues were for them and how they were resolved. Much of what we will discover is what churches and Christians still struggle with today. As the saying goes: "The more things change the more they stay the same." No prior knowledge or expertise of the Bible is required. All are welcome to participate. Just bring a Bible (or use one of ours) and your curiosity. Led by Pastor Rick.

Something to think about -

He Who Possesses






Why Jesus in Trouble







God, Jesus, transformation, and all that jazz

Lively conversations, honest questions, moments of grace--experience all of this and more at Salon Sophia, a group that gathers most weeks after the service in a home setting to ask the "So what?" question about the sermon or ask "Where is God in this?" in dealing with life issues.

Located in North Orange County, Brea Congregational UCC (BCUCC) draws families from all over Orange and Los Angeles counties. Worship emphasizes the creative, transforming power of God, and the music is eclectic - from traditional organ music to acoustic guitar and jazz piano.

Brea Congregational United Church of Christ is an Open and Affirming hospitality-based community of faith. We welcome in worship and service all of God’s children of any race, origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or ability. We celebrate and trust the transforming power of God, which was manifested through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We work to provide an environment of peace, social justice, personal empowerment, and spiritual growth, and to dedicate ourselves to the care of God’s Creation. Our ethical guides are to honor Christian openness to share our beliefs, doubts, struggles, and growth within the context of mutual respect. Therefore, our purpose is to reach out, taking the risk of opening ourselves to the possibility of making the stranger a friend.

I was a stranger, and you welcomed me. - Matthew 25:35
