Join us for a short-term small group experience in September!

We all dream of being happy. If we could just do this or that we could truly be happy. But over time, it begins to seem as though lasting happiness is unattainable. So how do we find lasting happiness and contentment in our lives? Maybe the answer isn’t in our own lives at all.

Starting in mid-September for four weeks we will use the study, happy?, in worship, small groups and personal reflection to connect the existential question, “Am I happy?”, with basic theology and unexpected biblical texts. Together we’ll explore the value of relationships, a forgiving lifestyle, living in the present, feeling gratitude, and learning to release control.

*The small group days and times are listed below, as well as their start dates. Please email secretary@encinitaschurch.com if you are interested in signing up for one of these studies.
