About NotChurch

We are a community of people, mostly American expatriates, living in a small coastal town in Baja California. Though some of us come from 'church' backgrounds, many bristle at the thought of organized religion. That doesn't, however, mean that we are not seeking something more out of life, and to connect with the spiritual--though that takes many different shapes for us. Not Church has emerged as a way for us to continue on that journey together.

Feliz Navidad

A great big THANK YOU to Linda and Richard Erickson for hosting our Holiday Celebration.  And thanks to organizers, singers and participants…to Erin, Anna, Steve, Carmen, and to Lee, to all of the inspiring speakers, Elliot, John, Carmen, & Ron, and of course Choir-oke.  It was festive and delightful!

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Feliz Navidad and Happy New Year.

We’ll see you Sunday, January 14th at Poco Cielo, 10AM.  Stay tuned for January Norte details.
