Religious Ministries

Welcome to the Religious Ministries Directorate

The Religious Ministries Directorate (RMD) offers a wide variety of religious opportunities for the entire Combat Center Community. RMD goals include assisting each one we meet with their own religious needs.

Nurturing faith, encouraging spiritual enrichment and offering hope in a loving community remains the RMD's number one commitment. RMD seeks to achieve the vision through a comprehensive and varied program of worship services, educational classes and fellowship opportunities.

Religious educational opportunities abound including Roman Catholic CCD/Faith Formations and several Christian Bible studies. Classes range from toddlers to adults. Regular and special music events fill the schedule. Youth gather in specially tailored programs. Additional programs include singles groups, PREP, CREDO, Christian Women's Fellowship, Military Conference of Catholic Women, Cyrus Young Adults and other specialized groups.

The Protestant Chapel and facilities at MCAGCC exist to primarily support the religious services and programs within the Chapel community, but may be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis when not in use for these services and programs.  Any request to use the Protestant Chapel must be submitted with a completed Reservation Request Form and approved by the Chapel Leading Petty Officer. Please contact (760) 830-6467 to obtain a Reservation Request Form.
