Congregation Spotlight: Brea Congregational United Church of Christ
This week’s Congregation Spotlight focuses on another one of our host congregations, Brea Congregational United Church of Christ, located in Brea, California. The congregation is led by Reverend Sarah Averette-Phillips. Brea Congregational United Church of Christ’s mission highlights the power of God manifested through Jesus Christ.
This congregation actively creates a peaceful and empowering environment so that members are able to engage with the community and can fully participate and learn from the teachings of Jesus Christ and each other. The congregation strives to “provide an environment of peace, social justice, personal empowerment, and spiritual growth, and to dedicate ourselves to the care of God’s Creation.”
Brea Congregational began partnering with Family Promise of Orange County in 2019. They now host our families several times a year, often two weeks at a time. The ministry at the church is led by Coordinators Ann Marshall and Carol This, and they are supported by a wonderful core group of volunteers. When they are not hosting our families, the congregation continues to be active supporters of our program year-round by providing much needed donations and support for our families.
Thank you Brea Congregational for your partnership!
