SERVICES EVERY SUNDAY
South Hills is a new church in the Costa Mesa/Newport area. We believe that church should be a place where everyone is welcome and anyone can belong – regardless of race, class, or creed. We try our best to create that environment at South Hills, and we would love for you to come and see for yourself. We meet Sunday mornings at Ensign Intermediate School at 10am.
You’re not who you used to be. You’ve changed with age & maturity. We all do. There are certain activities, toys, and ideas we clung to as kids, and outgrew as adults. And, for a growing number of us, God is at the top of that list. As we got older, wiser, more educated, and more experienced, we began to realize that the image of God we’d been handed as a child doesn’t work for us anymore. It seems overly simplistic, primitive, outdated, kid-ish. So, what do we do with this realization? What do you do when you suspect that you might’ve outgrown God?
Chris Kretzu’s dream is to help the church become a more authentic place. After living in Costa Mesa for the last 5 years, he and his wife felt it was time to help make that dream a reality in the community they had fallen in love with, and launched South Hills Costa Mesa. Chris loves cooking, movies, and good hip-hop. Chris and Es have been married for nine years and have two boys, Mason (6) and Arlo (2).
"What I love about South Hills is that you can be yourself. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else, or like you have to have it all together."
"We just moved here so we were new to the area and new to the community. Finding good true friendships and real relationships was hard, and this has just been a place for us to call home."
"I was looking for a sense of community, and since coming to South Hills I have this great sense of friendship. I truly feel like I belong here."
