Who We Are

We invite you to come worship with us and see how we do church. You'll find a pastor who doesn't stay put in the pulpit, but likes to preach from the aisle.

You'll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar or piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation. You'll find a special time for children that includes a ringing of bells, so we can listen to God in the silence that follows. You'll find flowers and beauty in our historic building.

In our church, 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.

Our Services

What are services like?
We don't believe in telling each other what to believe. We accept that we are all questioning and seeking the path to celebrating God and Christ among us. So we gather as a sometimes noisy group of intelligent adults and remarkable children — oh, yes, the children! — who dress casually, sing robustly and live out our extravagant welcome!

What is the community like?
We seek to be a community of welcoming, diverse people who prefer to think for themselves and live our faith. We treasure our children and involve them in every aspect of our church life.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We practice extravagant welcome: You are welcome here!

Kristi Denham

Kristi Denham

Our pastor, The Rev. Kristi Denham, is a graduate of San Francisco Theological Seminary and ordained in the Northern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ. She has served our church since 1999 when she responded to our call for a minister to lead us into the 21st Century. She is a trained liturgical dancer and writes professionally for United Press International’s Religion and Spirituality web site. She loves creating surprising and thought provoking worship experiences. Biblical scholarship is central to her understanding of her preaching gifts. She is currently working on a doctor of ministry degree in The Pastor as Spiritual Leader program at San Francisco Theological Seminary while she continues to lead our congregation. She has a passion for working with children and youth and a lifetime of commitment to social justice, especially racial and economic justice that mirrors our community's sense of service. Community, service and celebrations of our life in the Spirit are central to her sense of ministry and call. Come and meet Kristi, whose spirit is as captivating as her thick, red hair.
