Sundays at 9:45

Each Sunday we invite people into the rhythms of the church through beautiful practices that shape us and prepare us for life in Christ. We are formed by being immersed in Scripture, and by the constant presence of the Holy Spirit in prayer and praise; preparing us to encounter Jesus at the table he invites us to, each week.
The Abbey worships Sundays at 9:45 AM at the Autumn Terrace Community Center, 251 Tiger Way, San Marcos, 92069.

 

Sobremesa

Each week, worship flows into a leisure time around the table, as all are invited to stay for a relaxed time of lunch and conversation. The Spanish language has a beautiful word that captures this time together: sobremesa. It literally means "over the table," but it refers to the time spent around the table after a meal, talking to the people you shared a meal with, a time to savor both food and friendship. In increasingly disconnected societies, we believe friendship is best formed when our feet are under the same table.

 

Here's how to get to the Abbey.

We Are Kids

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

We can't talk about "us" without talking about kids. We aren't fully gathered as a community unless our children are present. We delight in seeing the whole community, adults and children, worshipping together. Kids are a vital part of worship, and they help teach us what it means to need others and depend on God.

On Sundays, kids and adults begin in worship together, and before the sermon, children are sent to participate in a dynamic storytelling experience that invites them to wonder, respond, and worship God in their own imaginative way. Kids are returned to their parents toward the latter part of the service, and together, the whole church receives communion. 

Babies and young children are always welcome to stay in the service to worship with the rest of the family, but child care is available for children 4 years and under.
