We find life is best lived alongside others. For this reason, at various times we offer a variety of ways for folks to engage in during the week to build friendship and explore issues together.  Here's what we've currently got going:

Reading group on Sacred Wounds, First Sundays of the month, 1-3 pm, Berkeley

Have you experienced pain in the context of spiritual community? Are you looking for ways to find healing, and possibly others to accompany you on the journey? Join Ginny Prince as she facilitates a reading group based on Teresa Pasquale's book on this topic, Sacred Wounds.

The group takes place over lunch once a month after church at Royal Ground Coffee House, a cafe near Washington Elementary. Sandwiches are available, or you can bring your own lunch. 

Community Dinner & Worship, 4th Sundays Of The Month, 4:30 - 7 pm, Location Varies

Once a month join folks in the community for an early potluck dinner, musical worship, and conversation. Children are welcome to participate; childcare is also provided. Locations will rotate from month to month throughout the East Bay. Contact Leah for details. This group will not meet in July 2018.

Haven Organizing for Action (HOA)

Join this Facebook group for folks who are looking for ways to live out their faith and passions through participation in demonstrations and non-violent direct actions.
