Music Sunday: Celebrating peace with the music of the Beatles
June 23 @ 10 a.m.
A worship service entirely based on the Fab Four? At first, the idea may seem out of place. But from "We Can Work It Out" to "All you Need Is Love," it turns out that Beatles music is surprisingly well suited to reflections on peace, possibility, and the importance of community. Interspersed with peace quotations from different faiths, the service invites both reflection and participation. Expertly arranged by Cliff DeManty and performed by the Brea Congregational UCC choir, with guest musicians (you can't do "Eleanor Rigby" without a cellist), this is a service not to be missed!

There are three numbers you need to really understand global warming: 275, 392, and 350. 350 means safety from the climate crisis. To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million ("ppm") to below 350 ppm.
But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet. Watch the movie “Do the Math.” 350.0rg. Get involved.

2012-2013 Centennial Year
Happy birthday to us!
Our 100 year birthday was April 13, 2013. We celebrated on Sunday, April 14th right after worship service with food and fellowship, then we rang the church bell...100 times!
Our centennial year kicked off last September 16 with a birthday bash--food, games, prizes, and fun. It's a year-long celebration with activities taking place every month. The Orange County Register did a follow up story on our first centennial celebration, please click here to read more about it.
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.
Small intimate setting with potluck. Learn more.

OUR FAITH IS OVER 2,000 YEARS OLD, OUR THINKING IS NOT.
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. Most services have an ASL interpreter.
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. 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
