Leading a Christ-Centered Community

For many years we have regularly organized gatherings and activities for women, men and families that cross the barriers of denominations and creeds.  We call this community of friends, Reflejo, which means reflection.  Growing out of the yearly “Western States Retreat” in California, where we have taken friends each December since 1994; we seek to emulate the spirit of fellowship and friendship that we experience there once a year in our own city throughout each year. Cross Cultural Fiesta

Reflejo exists for the purpose of uniting people from different churches and backgrounds to build relationships that draw people to discover and experience Jesus and as a result impact our community in tangible ways.

Reunión Reflejo is a gathering where we meet as families, share a meal, and build relationships through having an individual or couple tell their story and reflecting on the person of Jesus and His teachings.

Proyectos Reflejo is an opportunity for families to serve together doing special projects that directly benefit specific needs in our community.  Together the Familia Reflejo has done several toy drives in marginalized colonias on the outskirts of our city; participated in the building of two houses for families with special needs; served with abused women and their children through the local ministry of Casa de la Esperanza and Terra Nova Church from Irvine, CA.; painted a public elementary school in a high-risk neighborhood; collaborated on  “extreme makeovers” twice for the facilities and grounds of a non-profit family crisis center; and hosted workshops and retreats for men, women, and couples throughout the years and in different locations.

We consider that Reflejo, and all that it encompasses, is one of the most tangible ways in which we can fulfill the promise of Jesus that, “By this it will be clear to all men that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”  (John 13:35) Service Project is a Dream come True
