Our Origins


We are a new spiritual community open to all who are looking to explore their faith.

In September of 2010, the First Congregational Church of Pasadena (United Church of Christ) decided to create, fund & support a new ministry that would:

"Equip a new generation of people for vibrant, progressive Christian ministry in a global context in Pasadena…aimed at younger adults aged eighteen to thirty-something, worship, leadership development, service & justice, spiritual formation, & fellowship."

To support and lead the new ministry, Rev. Andy Schwiebert was called as Lead Pastor. In October of 2010, a leadership group began to vision and plan for the new ministry.

The first trial-runs of the new worship were in May, June and August of 2011. In July the first small group began meeting, on September 25th, 2011 we had our official kickoff of bi-weekly worship, and then from January of 2012 thru December of 2015, (a)Spire hosted weekly worship. Beginning in January of 2016, we began MONTLY worship, usually on the 3rd Sunday of every month.

We meet the 3rd Sunday of every month on the 3rd floor of the First Congregational Church of Pasadena in room 301 and our small groups meet Friday evenings. Join us to learn more!
