We would love to have you visit Corona Presbyterian Church! We know that visiting a church for the first time can sometimes be uncomfortable—we’ve all been there. We hope that these questions and answers give you the help you need to navigate your visit. Just know that we’ll be glad to welcome you no matter who you are or what your experience (or lack of experience) with church might be. You can also email us or call the church at (951) 444-1309 and we would be happy to answer your questions.
When We Worship
We worship every Sunday morning from 9:30 am-11:00 am. On the first three Sunday evenings of each month, from 6:00pm-7:30pm, we meet for singing, Bible study, prayer and fellowship. You are welcome to visit CPC in either the morning or the evening, but the best way to get a feel for who we are and how we worship is by attending our official Sunday morning worship service.
Where We Worship
As a church plant, we don’t yet have our own building. That’s why we’re grateful for our friends at Beth Shalom Messianic Jewish Congregation who let us to hold our worship services in their beautiful facility. You can find us at 2790 California Avenue in Corona. We are a short drive from the 15 freeway and very close to Santiago High School.
How We Worship
In our worship service, we worship God through singing, prayer, reading the Bible, and hearing expositional, Christ-centered sermons. Because our worship is for God, our service is marked by reverence and awe, order and beauty, faith and joy. Everything we do is based completely on the Bible and God’s promise of grace in Christ. We sing hymns from the Trinity Hymnal as well as newer songs that exalt our Triune God. We hope you’ll visit to get some first-hand experience!
What to Wear for Worship
Wear whatever is most comfortable! Our pastor usually wears a tie and jacket, but people at CPC wear everything from ties, to jeans, to shorts, and golf shirts. The important thing is to come ready for joyful and reverent worship of our God on the basis of the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Kids in Worship?
Yes! We love having our children with us in worship and encourage you to bring yours. For crying or unruly kids—we all have those days—we have a cry room where you can bring your children, sit comfortably, and listen to the service.
After We Worship
After morning worship, we invite you to stay for coffee, snacks, and fellowship followed by classes from 11:20am to 12:00pm.
• Our class for adults and older children (roughly ages 14+) covers a variety of topics to help you grow as a Christian. These include things like practical guidance on living the Christian life, key theological topics, studies of Bible books, helps for prayer, evangelism, and more. This class is a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss important topics in an informal setting.
• We also offer two classes for children (ages 2-13) where they learn the basics of the faith through singing, Bible lessons, scripture memory, and projects in a fun and safe environment, from caring volunteer teachers.
