We come to church hungry! We are hungry for comfort, hungry for love, hungry for a new way of living, hungry for God’s word. We are eager to taste God’s goodness in community, with our brothers and sisters. Bless us as we feast on the Bread of Life.
Bible Study starts 7:30 PM on Tuesdays via Zoom. Bible Study is currently reading Jesus, Christ and Servant of God: Meditations on the Gospel According to John by David Johnson. You do not need to have read or have a copy of the book available as we read a section and then discuss.
Prayers of the People on Thursday September 17, 8:00 PM – A time of prayer for each other and our needs as a community. We will also learn a little about some techniques to help us focus our prayer time and those moments when we’re not sure how to talk to God.

Census 2020: Don’t forget to respond to your notice either online, by phone or by paper form after April 8th. The census will only ask 9 questions and by law cannot be shared with anyone including ICE, the police, or other government agencies. An undercount will have a huge effect on our area. For example, if we have an undercount of 6% in Alameda County, the county will lose $1 billion over 10 years. For more information see the Census website.
