Hi there! My name is Emily Mayorga and I am blessed to be the co-chair for the EFD committee at the UCC for the 2016-2017 school year along with my awesome co, Ozzy! I am the youngest of an incredible family of 7 that are 6 hours too far in Northern California, in the city of Stockton. I am a 3rd year undergraduate student double majoring in Political Science and Sociology, and one day hope to be a Child Welfare Social Worker. My favorite things in life are my family, nature, road trips, and sunsets (all 4 together once….. that is me at my happiest).
Growing up, I always wanted to learn about my faith and about God more and more, but rarely cracked open a Bible to read His word. So, I like to think that God placed me on the Education and Faith Development Committee because He wants me to learn more about Him, and to help others come to know Him better too. Isn’t it a crazy but wonderful thought that we will never know all there is to know about our incredible and infinite God? So, come join this amazing and beautiful journey as we learn about our awesome faith and our amazing Creator! (Bible Studies at 6pm every Wednesday!!!)
I am forever indebted to the UCC and its members for providing a home for me throughout my college experience at UCLA. I truly and wholeheartedly love every single person I’ve met through the UCC and I cannot stress enough how much of a beautiful impact everyone at the UCC has made in my life. So excited to continue in my faith journey and serve our Lord and Savior every day of my life.
I leave you with one of my favorite Bible verses that is currently posted above my desk, and encourages me daily:
“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts.” – Psalm 28:7
