Ridgeview Church

The "church for people who don't do church." An eclectic blend of Valley Centerites, music that runs the gamut from old school hymns to rockin' contemporary Christian and sermons that are entertaining, thought provoking and rarely boring. This Sunday Pastor Bill will be speaking on "the importance of an RSVP." Ridgeview Church is a great place to make new friends, reconnect with old ones and discover God's purpose for your life. There's something for everyone, from an award-winning preschool to after school programs and youth groups. There are also a few different home study groups for men, women and couples of all ages. Call (760) 751-9890 or go to for further information.

St. Francis Episcopal Church

St. Francis Episcopal Church is a vibrant church in Pauma Valley. The church's mission is to share the love of Christ. The Episcopal Church welcomes all to celebrate and share Christ's love for his people.

The church is located at 16608 Hwy. 76 near the Pauma Valley Community Center. All are invited to join in our Sunday morning worship services. Look for our updated sign on Hwy. 76 and the new garden surrounding the sign.

Holy Eucharist is celebrated at both our Sunday services. The 8 a.m. service is a quiet service without music. The 10 a.m. service offers congregational singing and a weekly musical offering by the St. Francis Choir along with Sunday School and babysitting. After the 10 a.m. service, there is food, coffee, and conversation for all.

This past Sunday Fr. Stephen's sermon dealt with the central mystery of most Christian faiths: there is only one God in three persons. All things are "from the Father", "through the Son," and "in the Holy Spirit." The theology of the Holy Trinity was discussed and its importance to the church.
