caring for Earth.
breaking down walls.
love casts out fear.
who is my neighbor?
young and old
what we cannot do alone.”
We trace our roots back to the living room of Curtis and Elsie Clare, when they were young church planters in 1953. The Clares were in their early twenties, but saw the need for a place to call home, a family away from family, for new residents of La Mesa. They founded Lake Murray Congregational Church, which went on to partner with Northmont Evangelical and Reformed Church in 1965 to form the United Church of Christ of La Mesa.
Since then, we have continued this vision of being a place to belong for all people, now exemplified in our name– The Table. A place to gather and encounter Love, reminding us of the table Jesus gathered at with his friends, and our city La Mesa.
Today we are a progressive and energetic church that brings our passions, questions, and gifts into our ministry to make God's realm of Love more real on earth. We know that we can do much together that we cannot do alone.
