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 9:00 & 10:30am.
We’re all looking for people and places that are positive, encouraging, life-giving, and accepting of us regardless of where we’ve been and what we’ve done. But where do we find these kinds of places? There never seem to be enough. What if instead of finding a place like that, you wanted to form a place like that? How would you do that? What would it take? And once you found out, would you think it’s worth the effort?
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."
