About the Yreka Seventh-day Adventist Church
We are a rural church in Northern California who's mission is "Building Bridges to the Kingdom". Our vision: "Worshiping God, Loving each other, and Serving our community" is what each church member strives for.
-Education is important to our local church and we support a K-8 grade church school.
-We are a community involved church and are always looking for ways to help our neighbors.
-We enjoy each others company and are able to spend time together every second and forth Sabbath of the month fellowshiping at lunch with a group potluck following the church service. Also a well-attended and fun church campout is planned each June.
