Update: We will not be gathering in-person for Sunday worship through April. Please join us live (and replay) on this main page or you can call in live at 650.762.9995.
Remote offering donations can be mailed to the church office or we have online donation options under the CONNECT menu above.
God’s presence and our ability to creatively gather will remain.
Our April Community Lunch and Mobile Meal programs will not be held this month.
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 ambition is to create community that affirms, welcomes and supports everyone just the way they are in age, race, gender identity, 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.
Sunday Worship and Festival Name:
Reflection or Question for the Week:
What makes you most anxious? And how might you share that so that you don’t carry it alone?
Matthew 27: 11 – 26
Now Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, “Are you the King of the Judeans?” Jesus said, “You say so.” But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he did not answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how many accusations they make against you?” But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed.
Now at the festival the governor was accustomed to release a prisoner for the crowd, anyone whom they wanted. At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Jesus Barabbas. So after they had gathered, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release for you, Jesus Barabbas or Jesus who is called the Messiah?” For he realized that it was out of jealousy that they had handed him over.
While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, “Have nothing to do with that innocent man, for today I have suffered a great deal because of a dream about him.” Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus killed. The governor again said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?” And they said, “Barabbas.”
Pilate said to them, “Then what should I do with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” All of them said, “Let him be crucified!” Then he asked, “Why, what evil has he done?” But they shouted all the more, “Let him be crucified!”
So when Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took some water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man’s blood; see to it yourselves.”
Then the people as a whole answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!” So he released Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over to be crucified.
