Driving over a slight rise while heading east on Soledad Canyon Road, the sun shines brightly on a dramatic stone church highlighted by an artistic triple layered metal cross. The newly opened Cellular Church of the Santa Clarita Valley is a living testament to a dream of the pastor and the faith of the congregation to bring it to life.
Edwin Recinos was called into the missions field by his church, United Bretheren in Christ Church in Burbank, in 1993. He and his wife, Meri, moved with their two young children to Lakewood, CA to open a new church. Discouraged by the lack of growth, Recinos returned to Burbank. Although ready to accept the possibility that planting a church was not God’s call for his life, he was asked to move to Canyon Country because two families were interested in having a church nearby. the families bonded and the first cell group was formed.
