If you have already pledged for 2021, please accept our gratitude.

CHILDREN & YOUTH
Youth Program Changes

Due to the new COVID-19 restrictions for Alameda county we have suspended all weekly in-person Student Ministry events. Both Rock and Livewire have resumed meeting via Zoom. We hope to get back together soon.
Welcome to our Sunday school program, Digging into Foundations of Faith.

We are learning what it means to be a Christian. We will explore what the Bible reveals about who God is and how God sees us, how we fit in God’s family, and how we live the Christian life. As we study core concepts of Christianity, we will gain a solid framework for our own relationship with Jesus.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study Returns January 13

Join DR. DON ASHBURN for a study of the New
Testament Gospel of Mark. We’ll meet weekly online from 10 - 11am. We’ll be using the Zoom online platform. 

In the study, we’ll read the text out loud and then discuss its meaning, its original context as well as how it relates to our lives today. 

To participate, you’ll need access to a computer or mobile device with audio and visual capabilities. You can have your own copy of the Bible, or read the text as it’s shared onscreen. There’s no homework, and no expectation that you’ve studied the Bible before. 

Just join us, and invite your friends! Contact Dr. Ashburn at Don@PiedmontChurch.org. The link for joining the Bible Study online is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82910582013. It’ll be the same link each week.
