Community Life

Just as Jesus cared for the poor, healed the sick, shared joys and sorrows of friends and strangers, and offered forgiveness and reconciliation to all, we seek to embody Christ's gracious and sacrificial love in the First Pres community and beyond.

For in-person prayer support, Stephen Ministers are available after each Sunday worship service. For pastoral emergencies, please call (510) 848-6252 ext. 1.

Service of Lament and Healing
Friday, November 2, 2018, 7 pm | Sanctuary 

All of us experience loss and grief—whether it is due to death, divorce, diminishing health, job loss, or loneliness. 

We invite you to join us for a contemplative worship service as we remember God's faithfulness and the healing and hope we have in Christ.
