SERVICES EVERY SUNDAY
South Hills is a new church in Santa Clarita. 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 10am.
Christmas is supposed to be the best time of year. We place such enormous expectations on the Holiday season to fill our lives with the hope, peace, joy, and love we’re longing for. But, what if things don’t go according to plan, and you’re not where you want to be, and people don’t do what you want them to do, and you don’t get what you asked for? These are the questions the Christmas story confronts. Jesus’ birth radically reframed for humanity where hope, peace, joy, and love truly come from and how we go about experiencing them. What if Christmas isn’t what you thought it was, what if it’s something so much bigger and better?
Efren Pena was born and raised in New York City before moving out to California with his family and embarking on a journey of ministry. He loves the Yankees, ESPN, the Local Church & his family (Not in that particular order of course). He is passionate about loving people where they are in life and drawing a connection line to Jesus.
He and his wife (Monica) recently moved back to California with their 4 kids (Jennel, Madison, Sophia & Noa) after serving as the Campus Pastors of South Hills Puerto Rico. They are excited to begin a new journey at South Hills Santa Clarita.
"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."
