Dr. Charles Lee Irons called as Church Planting Pastor

to Santa Clarita United Reformed Church

Ordination & Installation Service – April 15, 2023 10:30am

March 29, 2023 - The Consistory (the elders) of the First United Reformed Church of Chino, California, is pleased to announce the ordination/installation service for candidate Dr. Charles Lee Irons. Dr. Irons has accepted the call to be the Church Planter for the Santa Clarita United Reformed Church.

The service will take place at First United Reformed Church of Chino on Saturday, April 15, at 10:30a.m. in the morning. Guests and any interested parties are welcome to attend. There will be a light lunch and reception following the service. The address is 6159 Riverside Dr. - Chino CA.

Dr. Irons has been a regular attender of the Santa Clarita mission work since it’s first

organizational meeting beginning in September of 2019 which started as a bi-monthly bible study to develop interest and a core group with a view toward planting a United Reformed Church in the city of Santa Clarita.

In the years since, Dr. Irons, having sustained both a Licensure exam (2021) and a Candidacy exam (2022) has used his gifts to regularly serve as pulpit supply at Santa Clarita URC and participate in the life of the growing church plant.

In February of 2022, Santa Clarita URC moved out of an in-home church setting to a permanent public location at the Reddy Plaza, 26860 Seco Canyon Road, Santa Clarita. This 6000sq.ft. space provides a worship sanctuary and ample classrooms to grow and establish a vibrant ministry and witness to the city of Santa Clarita. The timing of a location and a planter in Dr. Irons is a glorious testimony to the Providence of God. Santa Clarita URC holds both morning and evening worship services at 10am and 6pm every Lord’s Day.

Dr. Irons will officially assume his new role as the Church Planter and Pastor for Santa Clarita URC on April 16th , 2023 following his Ordination and Installation service on April 15th at First Chino.

First United Reformed Church of Chino is the overseeing church, providing oversite and support to the Santa Clarita URC church plant.
