san clemente presbyterian church     //     ADULT CLASSES & GROUPS


God is at work in and through our growing together.


God is at work in and through our growing together. There are four major components of discipleship at SCPC. The Groundings Experience is the cornerstone for discipleship at SCPC. Adult classes and seminars and Bible studies help us grow in understanding our faith and SCPC LOFTs help us live out faith inside and outside the church.

Hiking Group

The purpose of our hiking group is to enjoy God’s creation and get to know our fellow hikers. A local, easier hike will generally take place on the 2nd Thursday of the month and a more ambitious hike will occur on the last Saturday of the month. We meet at San Clemente Presbyterian Church in the north parking lot before we head to the trailhead each time.If you have any questions, send an email to or call 949.492.6158.


It is not a class that you complete. It is an experience that will set you on a lifelong journey. Through prayer, a fresh look at the teachings of Jesus, and discussion, participants of Groundings put what they learn into practice at home, work, school, and play. In a prayerful and confidential group, Groundings people share their experience of following Jesus into the world for the sake of the world. The end goal is for each person who participates to notice God at work in and around them and offer themselves to be a part of that work. We learn how to listen to another person’s story and to tell part of our own. Discipleship and evangelism come naturally together and engage people with the Good News of God’s love.

Groundings is part of the SCPC LOFT experience. It is also occasionally offered as a stand alone experience. It is  open to men and women of all ages. For more information about Groundings in 2019-2020 call Candie Blankman, (949) 492-6158 or email her at



/lôft, läft/     L. O. F. T.
“A creative space, not partitioned, but open to accommodate life together.”

In 2019 - 2020 we begin new groups at SCPC. These groups of people, called L.O.F.Ts, will Live Out Faith Together. By their innovative design and intentional multiplication, LOFTs show hospitality to all those in need of faith-based community. They will gather to build relationships and support the SCPC mission to inspire each other to follow Christ whole-heartedly. Some LOFTs will meet weekly, some will meet every other week. Some LOFTs at SCPC are designed to live out faith together around age and stage of life. Most LOFTs are intentionally diverse and live faith together across age and stage of life. By design these groups are open to others and, when their mission is to eventually divide and create new spaces for others to  live out our faith together—new LOFTs.  

If you are interested in joining an SCPC LOFT, contact Candie Blankman at  or call her at (949) 492-6158, ext. 19.
