Antioch SDA Church
WHERE EVERY STORY MATTERS.
Pastor Josie Asencio
We would like to welcome our new pastor, Josie Asencio.
She has been a foster parent, is a trained chaplain, a doctoral student and someone who enjoys going on adventures. She has gone skydiving, cliff diving, Scuba diving and loves Disneyland!
She loves having fun, laughing and believes that the Christian walk should be immersed in fun, laughter, vulnerability and authenticity. It is her desire to follow God's calling wherever He may lead.
Her life verse is. 1 JOHN 4:11-12 which says:
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:11-12 NIV)
It is her desire that those she ministers to gain a clearer understanding of what it looks like to have an authentic relationship with God and God’s people as we wrestle with questions like: How do I recognize God’s voice? How can I get along better with others? What is God asking of me?
What we offer you
Committed Pastoral care.
Getting the pastoral help you need at the right time is imperative. We make sure that our visitors and members have the pastoral support they need.
Biblical teaching and preaching
Understanding the Bible can be difficult and finding answers to life's most important questions can seem impossible. Our church places high value on making sure our teachings are firmly grounded in God's Word.
A safe place for multi-cultural, multi-generational community.
It can be challenging sometimes to know your family is completely accepted just the way you are. We take pride in our very multi-cultural congregation and we offer the accommodations needed for nursing Mothers and our elderly visitors and members.
We have Bible class at 9:45 am every Saturday morning for babies, children, teens and adults! Join us for ROMA-Round right after for fellowship, ROMA, Tea, and other treats at 10:45 am in the foyer! Our church service starts right afterwards at 11:05 AM. Thanks for checking out our website and we hope to meet you soon!
Tuesday night basketball & cornhole @ school gym - 6 pm

Our ministries are our services which we offer to our members and the surrounding community. We have ministries for kids, teens, and adults- if you have any questions about a specific ministry, give us a call- we'd be happy to speak with you!
Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, ages 10 and older are welcome and encouraged to join the organization.
Our Church also has a Spanish-speaking congregation that meets downstairs every Saturday morning. We also have a weekly prayer meeting on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM. Contact Elder Zoila of our Spanish church to learn more.
Being a young person who wants to follow God certainly comes with its challenges! If you are of high school age and looking for other young people to hang with, we offer many activities to meet new people and ways to get involved in service. Contact Zach, the youth leader to learn more!
Do you have a passion to learn more about technology or videography? Consider joining our media ministries team where you can hone your skills or learn new ones, as you dedicate your talents for God.
Do you play an instrument or love to sing? Do you have a deep desire to use these talents for the Lord? If so, we would love to have you audition to participate with the music ministry in our church. Contact our Music Ministries Director to learn more!
