Environmental

In 2017, Mission Hills Christian Church embarked on a journey to become more enviromentally conscious. This included developing a team to prioritize important changes to our operations and space. We hosted a panel of climate leaders from around Los Angeles to present at a special screening of Josh Fox's documentary "How To Let Go Of The World." In addition, we started the first organic community garden in Mission Hills, and hosted 4 workshops with the natural agriculture non-profit NaturaGro. Our community garden is open for everyone in the community to plant organic fruits and vegetable to promote healthy and sustainable lifestyles. We have also recently replaced all exterior and interior lights with energy efficient bulbs and use the RecycLA program for recycling.  We are currently in the process to move our facilities to 100% solar power by 2019.

ways to get involved

Justice peacemaking
LBGTQ+ Alliance
Theological Dialogue

We are a growing, diverse group of believers and doubters, sinners and saints that are doing our best to follow in the way of Jesus. We are a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) community, but we're a modern hybrid of people from multiple denominations, traditions, and cultures. We practice communal dialogue on important issues facing our society, engage in challenging  and encouraging conversations, and promote the wellfare of our community, city, and vulnerable peoples.  We would love to have you join our team!

Community Engagement

We value community engangement centering on practices that benefit the well being of our neighborhood and city. We practice this through activities such as our organic community garden, free little library, wellness workshops, yoga classes, free festivals, and community meals. 


LGBTQ+
Alliance

We are all on a journey to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live life to the fullest in Christ. Join us in the conversation to become more welcoming and accepting of all people at Mission Hills through a variety of initiatives that seek to create spaces of dialogical encounter in which everyone has a voice.


environmental advocacy

We are officially a green chalice community within the Christian Church Disciples of Christ with the goal for complete certification by 2019. Join our green team of inspirational leaders that are moving us to become more environmentally friendly as we learn to love and care for God's creation.

theological conversations

We value critical thinking and the pursuit of theological conversations because we understand Jesus calls us into life's important questions. We practice deep thinking, contemplation, and compassionate conversation. In the traditions of Jesus, we do seek to offer a set of pat theological positions, but rather to ask good questions that allow for difference and move us to greater love.
