Our Services

What are services like?
Spirit-filled Contemporary Christian rock music mixed in with a mix of formal and informal liturgy. We offer Communion every service and will never turn away anyone from receiving it.

What is the community like?
We are a small, growing, group of mostly adults ranging in age from college age to senior citizens. Our congregation is made up of about 70% from the GLBTQ community. Although we have a strong ministry to our gay population, we are not exclusively a "gay" church.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome at Light of the Soul UCC. We wholeheartedly affirm our denomination's creed of "no matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here."


Rev. Denise Cordova

Rev. Denise Cordova is an ordained minister who has been in the pastorate for over 16 years. It took Denise 35 years to discover that she had wasted decades living in self-doubt and self-condemnation, so she has made it her life’s mission to remind everyone that God’s Grace, Love and Salvation is available to ALL people. Denise believes that the Bible was written to empower people and was never meant to be used as a bat to beat people down. Denise is driven by the numerous stories shared by “the least of these,” some of whom left this earth not knowing how much God loves all of us. It is Denise’s desire to loudly proclaim God’s acceptance and nurturance of every single one of us.
