Our worship service is at 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning with a pre-worship centering prayer beginning at 10:15 a.m. Worship consists of songs (both contemporary and traditional) and Biblically based messages. We are an active community church that welcomes diversity, respecting each individual and their contribution to the worship celebration. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. We have a child-friendly active space in our sanctuary for little ones.  We also have a Godly Play class for young children which begins roughly 10 minutes after the beginning of worship.  The teaching pastor is Rev. Monte McClain.

Our services are traditionally inspired yet led in a way that is current and related to our 21st century Bay Area context.  We are firmly rooted in the Reformed Tradition yet open to all ways that God moves in the world.  Our music incorporates classic hymns, spirituals and a twist on praise music accompanied by piano, guitar, banjo, bass and often the djembe.

WINTER 2019

1 John is a pastoral letter written to the church as it faces division and debate over what it means to be a follower of Christian. Brief and seemingly simple, when you look at the language, this written sermon upon careful reading is in actuality a deep reflection on who Jesus is and was, and how his life example and teaching on loving your neighbor changes the world and has practical implications for our daily life and our communal life.  We’re working through this pastoral word of encouragement from January to March 2019 with the underlying focus of talking about meaning in life and death, with a specific goal of empowering reflection and action in terms of end-of-life conversations and decisions rooted in materials provided by  The Conversation Project .

The folks at the Bible Project have made a great introductory video to the 3 letters of John. Most of the 9 minute clip introduces the themes and breaks down the structure of 1 John. It’s a great tool for listen for God’s Word for us today in the word written long ago.


Worship is the work of our community.  That's what the word liturgy means in ancient Greek.  You can be involved in our worship matters because worship matters to all of us.
