WHAT WE OFFER

Deepening An Awareness and A Relationship with God and Others

‘THE JOURNEY’

The Journey is an invitation to a different way of living out the Christian life. In time, this will result in the deeper relationship with God that we all long for.

WORSHIP

We offer a monthly worship service. It takes place at a variety of locations around the San Mateo area. It is not a 'teaching and preaching' time. The service consists of music, scripture readings, reflection, individual and small-group prayer, and Holy Communion.

‘REFLECTION’

Our Reflection groups meet for 10 weeks, once a week. They're designed to help you consider the true nature of your relationship with God. How do I look at God, and how does He look at me? What is prayer like for me? Do I actually have affection for God?

SUPPORT US

It's of paramount importance to us to keep our program prices affordable — and accessible. But proceeds from fees only cover a third of our costs. So we rely on those in and around our community for support. Please consider offering an ongoing amount.

RETREATS

We provide opportunities to get away and be alone with God. These retreats are held at retreat centers that have ample space for quiet and prayer. The first 3 hours are guided by a spiritual director. Space tends to be limited so please book as soon as possible.

ONE-TO-ONE DIRECTION

We offer personal spiritual counseling and direction, for those seeking guidance during intense times of turmoil or to deal with those BIG questions we all ask ourselves. Who does God want me to be? What should I do in accord with my relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?
