For 7 years, UP Church has brought together the Southern California New Thought community for a collective worship experience. It gives us a chance to give thanks for our community through music, prayer, praise, and the spoken word. Our annual event allows those attending to express gratitude, celebrate our community and be enriched.


This year we're expanding the experience into a 2-day event for the whole family. On Saturday, October 26th, we will host a New Thought Leaders Prayer Breakfast in the Fellowship Hall at 600 W Queen Street in Inglewood, CA.


Our keynote speaker for the Prayer Breakfast and the Sunday Worship Experience will be the Rev. Dr. Derrick B. Wells, Senior Minister of Christ Universal Temple.


Please share the news of this great event with your friends and colleagues, and invite them to join us at this wonderful event.


We look forward to seeing you.




Rev. Sherri James and Rev. Sheree Thompson

Delicious Food and Incredible Fellowship

Rev. Nirvana, former Senior Minister for Guidance Center for Spiritual Living was instrumental in supporting Rev. Sherri James and Rev. Sheree Thompson with completing their practicum for seminary. He expressed a desire to see a greater sense of community among the New Thought churches, centers and study groups within Southern California. We have caught that vision and are using our annual Worshiping in Color Weekend to foster that community. We are extending a warm welcome to all leaders to join us on Saturday morning, October 26th.


Doors Opens 7:45am | Breakfast Served 8:00am | Program Begins 8:30am
