Sharing a life of Transformation & Compassion
First Congregational Church of San Francisco is a gathering of diverse people who have come together to support one another on life’s journey. We are spiritually and socially diverse, accepting of differences and open minded. We are single and married, straight and gay, gender fluid and not, come in different colors and ages.
We have a vision of our life together:
- to grow spiritually & support others in their spiritual life.
- to practice a life of gratitude and service.
- to bear witness to the loving and inclusive character of God through the person of Jesus.
- to give voice to Christ’s transformative message of justice, hospitality, peace & compassion.
When we worship together, we start with the teachings of Jesus. But, we also integrate teachers from other wisdom and creative traditions: musicians, poets, activists, prophets, storytellers.
On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate open communion. You don’t have to be a member of our church or any church at all. We just want to invite you to share in the radical hospitality of our Jesus. There is always a place at the table for you.
In Jesus we find hope for the renewal of creation, of humanity, and our own lives in the midst of the dynamic age in which we live. Ours is a complex world. Each of us experience personal challenges, and are made anxious by social turmoil and rapid change. Our hearts break when we witness a world fragmented by prejudice, indifference, war, division and environmental destruction.
Affirming hope can be hard.
So we hold fast to a vision and promise of renewal. We look for Easter morning every day. In renewal we find hope, peace, and connection with others. We also find the courage to speak the truth of our lives to a world that is often broken.
We invite you to join us!
Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
