Santa Maria Seventh-day
Teaching Truth, Serving God,
Welcoming You Home
It’s my privilege to greet you and to introduce you to our wonderful church family. We are a diverse community of believers and followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that God is interested in us and wants to bless every area of our lives. For that reason, the Seventh-day Adventist faith seeks to nurture, grow and empower the entire person: Body, Spirit, and Mind.
It’s my hope that you’ll experience the love of Christ in our church as we grow in God’s grace and prepare for Jesus’ soon coming!

Reflection of the Week
Money is a touchy subject. It is also a personal matter. As such, we keep our money and the transactions to ourselves. But God knows what we have. He knows how we spend, how we save and invest. It would make sense. After all, everything we have is because God is good and He supplies us with our needs.
Speaking to the Pharisees, Jesus said, “You cannot serve God and wealth at the same time.” “In fact,” He says, “you will tend to love one and hate the other.” Money is a hard master and a deceptive one. Wealth promises power and control, but often it cannot deliver. Great fortunes can be made, and lost, overnight, and no amount of money can provide health, happiness, or eternal life. It is much better to let God be your Master.
