In 1915, the legacy of Christianity in the Temecula Valley was forever changed when Freda Knott purchased Temecula’s first school house and converted it into what is now, exactly 100 years later, the Reliance Church Chapel. Freda started a legacy. One that would far surpass her generation, her children’s generation, and even her grandchildren’s generation. Today, we continue in the legacy she started.
Reliance Church is not a building, and it never has been. Reliance Church is a family of believers, united in Christ and dedicated to making disciples, but every family needs a home. Home is where we gather, where we are fed, and from which generations are raised. In building a new home, we are beginning a new legacy. Will you join us?
Our building project is divided into several phases. We started with the main sanctuary and parking lot in 2017 and by God’s grace, completed Phase 1 in June of 2018. Upon completion of Phase 1, we were able to move our Sunday services into our new home and began raising funds for future phases which will include classrooms and office space.
On Palm Sunday 2015, Pastor Ted gave a sermon on John 12:1-13 in which Jesus was anointed by Mary at Bethany. Mary had taken a pint of pure nard and used it to anoint Jesus in preparation for his death, burial, and resurrection. Mary was building a legacy. We encourage you to watch the entire sermon as Pastor Ted speaks to Building a Legacy and addresses where we need to be in order to see this legacy through.
