We are now the Congregational Church of the Peninsula!
The Congregational Church of the Peninsula, created from the merger of the Congregational Church of Belmont and First Congregational Church of Redwood City, came together for worship on July 30 as one beloved community. The Rev. Dr. Davena Jones, Northern California Nevada Conference Minister, received the new church into membership of the United Church of Christ and the conference and Yolanda Austin welcomed it into the Golden Gate Conference. After worship, members gathered in the Dining Room to share a cake with “Congregational Church of the Peninsula” written out in icing and get to know each other in fellowship.
Welcome to the little church on the hill!
Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
Come worship with us and see how we do church. We don’t have all the answers, but we will challenge you to find those that work for you.
You’ll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar and piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation.
You will find ideas to stimulate your thinking and surprising new understandings that can come from reaching deep into the history and mystery of the Scriptures.
“God is not a Christian; God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems, which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t think my tradition defines God. I think it only points me to God.” – John Shelby Spong
