Vital & Thriving Household Survey

We would love for everyone who considers themselves an active part of our community to make sure that someone from their household completes the survey from Vital & Thriving.

Many thanks to those who have already filled it out - if you haven't already, you have one more week to do so.

The survey should only take 10 minutes; click here to fill it out now.

Thank you for your participation in helping us discern our community's future!

Easter is Coming—And We Need Your Help
We are looking for many different roles, from people to manage the whole service to people who can help light candles. There are also jobs to do on the setup days before the liturgies.

Everyone is invited—and NEEDED—to make church. Sign up today to help create the liturgies of Holy Week and Easter.

Our Shared Life
  • This week we pray for Kathleen Hamil, who recently moved away from the Bay Area. She looks forward to hearing from Gregorians.
  • If you would like to participate in our Sunday Liturgy as a reader in person or on Zoom, you can sign up by contacting Peter; he will share the new sign-up information with you.
  • We are recruiting more deacons, zoom hosts, and camera deacons for our hybrid service. If you'd like to help out please feel free to, please feel free to contact Peter.
