Save Our Shores is in the sanctuary

This week, our Give Back Speaker Series continues with Save Our Shores, a nonprofit marine conservation organization in Santa Cruz. Remember that all designated donations given during the service go directly to Save Our Shores!

Speaking of the sanctuary…

So far, we have raised $1,635 toward our goal to replace the pews in the sanctuary with tables and chairs that will allow us to host more types of events and have more interactive services. Read more at our GoFundMe page. Thank you to those who have donated so far!

Faith on Tap is November 13th

Faith on Tap is switching weeks this month, so we’ll see you on November 13th at 8pm for our non-denominational/multi-faith/multi-non-faith discussion group with beer, wine, and root beer.

Say hi to our new folks

You might have noticed a few new(ish) folks around the last few months. When you get a chance, say hello to:

  • Tony, our pastoral intern who is getting his degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary. Ask him about paint and learn some fascinating stuff.
  • Sarah, who is filming the services and helping with our media presence. Ask her about the awesome work she does at the Resource Center for Nonviolence and on Drew Glover’s campaign.
  • Alex, our new Children’s Ministry teacher. Ask him about first graders and the cool things they do with science.

First time visitors

If Sunday was your first time with us, we especially want to say thank you for coming and we look forward to seeing you again! We want to talk with you more and hear any questions or concerns (or praise) you have. Send Christopher an email at or call (831) 426-0510.

This Sunday
