This Sunday: In-person service

Join us in person this Sunday at 10 am. The Men's Group will be running worship (as many in the congregation will be away at our women's retreat). John Latham will preach.


This week, there is no Zoom option available. We hope to see you in person at the retreat or at worship!

Try our new volunteer signup tool

We need several volunteers for every in-person service: a reader, a greeter, a coffee hour host, and someone to set up the altar. We're testing an online scheduler (to replace our old system, a clipboard that we passed around in person.) Please click here to volunteer for an upcoming service — or just to see how the online tool works!


Memorial for Jan Lamphier: Sep 10

All are invited to join with friends and family to celebrate the life of Jan Lamphier, on Sat, Sep 10 at 1:30 pm. (The choir will meet at noon to rehearse.) If you can help with chairs and set-up, please join Diane and Susan at the church on Fri, Sep 9 at 10 am.


Meditation in the redwoods

Join the Meditation Group on Wed, Sep 7 at 8:30 am in the parking lot at Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve. (Take Highway 92 south from Half Moon Bay and turn left on Verde, which becomes Purisima Creek Road. Follow to the end.)
