Be connected!
Our goal is to create connection and community among our United States military wives who live the “military-life.”  Our focus is on those whose husbands are active in the military.  Come join us and spend time with other military wives so you can build a Christian community of friends while you're here in San Diego. There's ton of stuff Shadow Mountain Community Church can offer you and your family!

We'd love to have you join our private FB!
