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.
