WELCOME TO SOUTH HILLS CORONA
We’ve had the privilege of loving & serving the great city of Corona for over 21 years. Our heart is to be the sort of church where everyone is welcome—regardless of what they look like, where they’ve been, or what they believe. You won’t find a lot of religious rhetoric here. What you will find is a diverse group of imperfect people waking up to what it looks like to live & love like Jesus in the here & now. But don’t take our word for it. Come & see for yourself. We’ll have a cup of hot coffee & some fresh-made donut holes waiting for you.
When most of us in the modern West think of Christmas, our first thought is usually something connected to indoor trees, twinkle lights, shopping sprees & sugar cookies. But in the ancient East, this season was one of Advent. It’s an old word with Latin origins that we don’t really use much anymore. It means “coming”. It was about anticipating the anniversary of the moment Divinity made itself know to humanity in the most earth-shattering, story-changing, category-exploding of ways. It reminded the people of God to turn down the volume on the chaos of life & prepare their hearts & minds for God to reengage their stories in surprising new ways with a fresh sense of Hope, Peace, Joy & Love.
CAMPUS PASTOR: ADAM SMITH
Adam leads the staff & speaks live most weekends in Corona. His quirky, story-driven approach to Scripture has this disarming way of getting you to think, laugh & question what it means to be human. He & his wife, Gretchen, spend a disproportionate amount of their home life huddled around a teal kitchen island with their three small children— talking, laughing, eating & dancing (and after their kids are in bed, binge-watching Netflix & eating the secret ice cream they’ve hidden in the back of the freezer).
"This church has changed our lives around and it is continuing to change it for the better. We never thought we would find so much love in one place and devotion to serve and care for others. God is wonderful and I am blessed that he has brought my husband and I to this place."
"Ever since Ruth began attending South Hills, she would always speak of how wonderful and how moving the church was. Once I came home from overseas, I began attending and shared the same feelings as her. It has been a wonderful experience being a part of the South Hills family."
"At South Hills Church, you feel an authentic hospitality when you are greeted in a genuine family atmosphere. The worship experience is vibrant and creates an atmosphere of sanctified spiritual energy where we can celebrate Jesus."
