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. 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.

The parable of the generous householder (Matt. 20:1-16) reminds us life is not always equal and fair…likewise, marriage is not always 50/50. Sometimes one will need to give much more than the other. Striving to give your all to your beloved is better than measuring tit for tat!

St. Francis Episcopal Church

St. Francis Episcopal Church is a small but vibrant church in Pauma Valley. The church's mission is to share the love of Christ. We are an active parish that has enjoyed some wonderful events this past week.

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. After the 10 a.m. service, there is food, coffee, and conversation for all.

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 service.
