Welcome to Unity Lutheran Church of South San Francisco & Millbrae

We are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.  Liberated by God’s unconditional love shown through Christ, we embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities and all.  We have them too.

Our aim is to create community that affirms, welcomes and supports everyone just the way they are in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic or family status,  physical or mental abilities.

Come add your perspectives and life experiences to the diversity of views as we gather to share each hope and dream, each challenge and concern, each joy and lament, building up the message of love, respect and authenticity for one another.

Gospel Reading:
Mark 10: 35 – 45

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.”

And Jesus said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?”

And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.”

But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”

They replied, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.”

When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John.

So Jesus called them and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be servant of all. For the Son of Humanity came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

– New Revised Standard Version
