Bible Preaching 
and Teaching

If we did nothing else, it would be preaching the Word of God to all, believers and non-believers alike, and teaching the Word and Christian Theology, Doctrine, History, and Biblical Interpretation, and other topics of vital importance” to disciples to help them grow up into the fullness of Christ. Verse by verse through books of the Bible or expositional sermons based on themes like the Parables.

Food Collection and Distribution

For over twenty-five years we have partnered with Respecting Our Elders on a food pick-up and distribution program. We regularly pick up food at local Whole Foods and Safeway stores. The food then is taken to our fellowship hall for people in need from the community.

Why We Are Christians

Why We Are Christians is a conversational interview program in which we learn how people from different countries, races, languages, classes, ages, and religions came to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, then what happened next. The usual format is two half hour episodes with the same person, either in the studio or via Skype.

Kenya, Africa Kids Fund

Children in Kenya are allowed to attend public school, but only if they have uniforms, which many, especially girls, cannot afford. Our Jane Ndungu created a means to buy sewing machines and fabric and to employ women to make uniforms and backpacks for the kids. We raise funds for this ongoing project by holding two yard sales per year. The average amount collected is $1,000.

There is a separate women-only version Bible Study also.

Breaking Bread Fellowship

We are very committed to table fellowship and think this is where much of our relational bonding and growing happens. During the pandemic, we suspended this part of our fellowship but will gradually bring it back. Stay tuned!

Sunday Evening Service

For those who cannot attend Sunday morning services (and for some who like to attend both) we hold a 6–7 PM service, led by Pastor Vernon. It is more casual and open in format. We welcome anyone who wishes to participate with a musical or poetry offering, Bible passage reading, etc. It is currently being live-streamed via Zoom as well as in person.
