First Pres Berkeley’s Street Meal is on the second and last Saturday of each month, serving nutritious meals to our East Bay neighbors in need. Under COVID-19 restrictions, we are serving to-go meals and hot coffee with minimal volunteers.
In this prolonged season of upheaval, it is hard to feel tethered to one another, to our sense of self, and even to God. Join us this fall as we retell the foundational stories of our faith tradition.
Online: Join us at 10 am on our YouTube channel.
These gatherings are for in-depth study of Scripture and life application. Along with the formal teaching and discussion, youth will be challenged to grow in their faith and relationships with one another.
Join us in creating Common Ground where those of us new or returning to church can ask, explore, wrestle with, and ponder those questions that brought us here to begin with. Each week we’ll share our wonderings and wanderings together, discovering, if not answers, fellow journeyers in this Common Ground.
The Open Door Community Group gathers for a time of connection, prayer, and conversation using the weekly Questions for Reflection based on the Sunday message. We welcome all to come and join our community at any time. In person and virtual via Zoom.
Stories from the Road | A Conversation with Your First Pres Pastors Join us for the first of a series of candid conversations with First Pres pastors and community members about their experiences reading, interpreting, preaching, praying, and living out scripture. Hosted by our Sunday adult Emmaus Communities as part of their "Adventures with Scripture" series, all are invited to these lively conversations!
We explore one book of the Bible at a time, alternating Old and New Testaments, using questions that help us to more fully understand what God is saying to us and where God beckons us outward. Virtual via Zoom. Please email Susan Stewart for more information and the Zoom link: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation with Pastor Tom and others as he guides us on a journey through 1 Thessalonians.
Serve by setting up and bundling groceries. Please contact Beth Thomsen for more information.
