First Congregational Church of San Rafael
Note: FCC San Rafael has recently been between pastors. Our new Interim Pastor, Rev. Ken Barnes will start November 1.. Until then, please accept the following as an expression of the welcome we extend to all.
In this church we are concerned about the things that matter.
Your background doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter to us if you grew up in a church or never set foot in one before.
What matters is that you hunger to know abundant life.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about our church! We are intentionally an open and affirming, inclusive and diverse community. You are welcome regardless of age, educational or economic background, physical or mental ability, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, political affiliation, ethnicity or race.
Come and be spiritually recharged and better equipped for life. We are progressive in our theology: You don't have to have a certain set of beliefs to belong. Each member is free to set their own beliefs. We follow Jesus' bottom-line: Love God and Love your Neighbor as you Love Yourself.
We have great music and conversation. We have creative programming for children and youth. Our goal is a faith that both sustains us and challenges us to look beyond ourselves to help build God's vision here on earth.
Our congregation takes pride in offering an extravagant and radical welcome to everyone. We attempt to open our doors as wide as possible, knowing how difficult it can be for a newcomer to cross the threshold into a new faith community. It is an exciting place to worship and to learn, to meet new friends, discover new opportunities and be involved in making a difference in this world.
We hope that we can be a place for you as you grow in your spiritual journey, and we know that we will be enriched by having you visit us as well! It is our hope that our web site will give you a better feel for the community, the programs and the people who make this church special.
