I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the online site for Sunset Park Christian Church.  Scroll down and see the NEWS section, where each week I post an announcement about the upcoming services and events at Sunset Park.  As is our tradition as Disciples of Christ, we love to have free and wide-ranging discussions about the Bible,  in our  11 a.m. Sunday worship service and our noon fellowship and coffee time.  Please come find us on Sunday mornings at 1515 Maple St., Santa Monica, 90405 and join the discussion.

Palm Sunday, April 13, at 11 a.m.

At Sunset Park Christian Church


Matthew 21: 8-9“A very large crowd* spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
‘Hosanna to the Son of David!
   Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!”




Featuring Legendary Sax Man Tom Rockwell and The Glory Sisters



This Sunday, we explore four of the greatest Hymns ever, which, when put together, tell the Palm Sunday story.  Join us on Sunday to hear these hymns as you’ve never heard them and watch the great story come to life!  Then join us for lunch and sparkling conversation.  Beautiful music, an exciting cliffhanger, food, and fellowship await!

Have an Epiphany at Sunset Park Christian Church

Epiphany is about seeing something old (eternal) in a new way, and blossoming.


Mark 8:36-37  “What does a man gain by winning the whole world at the cost of his true self? What can he give to buy that self back?”


From the Lotus Sutra’s Rain Cloud Poem: The Buddha says:
I appear within the world
Like a great cloud of rain
Nourishing all
parched life forms,
So they may end their suffering
And gain peace and bliss
And the joy of Nirvana.



Join us as we celebrate the insights of Epiphany with Christian and Buddhist wisdom with crazy music , wonderful food, and stimulating conversation.  Even if you’ve been to an Epiphany service already, it wasn’t like this!  Check us out and enjoy!
