New City Church, Oakland Ca
New City Church in Oakland California is a new church plant in partnership with Orchard Group (orchardgroup.org) and the EFCA (efca.org). New City is a gospel-centered, multi-ethnic and multi-generational church committed to truth, disciple-making, evangelism, justice and church planting.
New City officially launched in October 2021. But before its launch the Garcia family arrived in Oakland at the front end of the pandemic with a vision to start a new in the city. Starting a church during a pandemic wasn’t the most strategic move; however, it allowed the Garcia family to learn the city, build lots of relationships with the yet-to-believe and prayerfully start gathering a core team.
By God’s grace by January of 2021 a core-team of about thirteen people was established and they started gathering together for times of prayer, discipleship, and community outreach. From the very inception New City has had eyes and hearts toward the city, looking for ways to meet real needs and become the living proof of a loving God.
Month by month new people were added to the community and in summer of 2021 New City hosted its first Vision Night and then one worship gathering per month for the next three months until the it’s grand opening in October 2021.
After years of full-time ministry in different settings and contexts, lead pastor Gabe Garcia, is committed to leading New City towards depth and width; deep in discipleship and wide in gospel impact.

Church 180, San Diego, Ca
Many of us are looking for hope in so many things throughout our life whether that be our image, achievements, successes, resources, or relationships. While those things aren’t necessarily bad we believe they pale in comparison to the hope that we were made to live for in Jesus.
At Church 180 we don’t take ourselves too seriously but we take turning toward Jesus very seriously as we believe that He is our source of hope to bringing healing and renewal to our lives, communities, and world.

Renovate Church, Lakewood, Ca
After 6 years of studying, praying, and talking to as many people as he could learn from, Chris finally decided to step out and plant Renovate in 2020 with his wife and their three young children: Jonah, Gracelynn, and Luke. The plan was to launch in Long Beach in the fall of 2020, but they had no idea what would happen in March of 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic, while a lot of people were talking about slowing down, Chris felt like God was leading Renovate to accelerate. So, on Easter Sunday 2020, five months earlier than they had planned, Renovate launched online.
It was not what they had planned, it was not easy, but they have seen God’s hand in it all and have continued online services ever since. Renovate refused to be a church that stood on the sidelines during one of the most difficult times in our nation’s history. Through this decision, God has been faithful and Renovate has seen Him move and do the impossible.
After almost a year of being online, Renovate is now having in-person services every Sunday.

Refinery Church, Temecula, Ca
When people experience God, their lives are changed for the better. In His presence, we find peace, joy, and the strength needed to meet all of the challenges life throws our way. Many people think that the only way you can have this is by following a bunch of rules and doing the right things. In reality, it’s impossible to please God on our own–no matter how hard we try. But God loves us so much that He sent His son, Jesus, to live a perfect life, die a horrible death on a cross, and then be raised from the dead to conquer sin and death for all time! Accepting what Jesus has already done for us is the only way to fully experience God.
That’s why we’re always talking about what it means to have a relationship with Jesus and how that relationship provides freedom and acceptance–and creates new avenues for meaning and purpose. People also experience God in prayer and worship, reading the Bible, connecting with other people, and serving others in Jesus’ name. In fact, we can experience God in every facet of life–from music to nature, as well as in our families, vocations, and the list goes on and on–if we are open to His presence. The Refinery Church wants to open all of these avenues to you, your family, your friends, and the entire Temecula Valley.
