Welcome! Castro Valley United Methodist Church is a warm and welcoming congregation. We offer excellent worship, fellowship, bible study, service opportunities, and programs and activities for children, youth, and adults. We are part of the United Methodist Church whose mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
We invite you to worship, grow, and serve with us!
During this season of Lent, we hear the call to return to God with all our hearts. What if we took this invitation to return to God seriously? To seek God with all our hearts, we may have to find home in different ways. There may be those who need to turn away from busyness to return to God. Others may need to walk away from anger or frustration with God to return to God. Acts of preparation, repentance, and commitment are ways that help us to return to God.
With this year’s theme for Lent, “Return to Me with All Your Heart,” I invite you to participate in ways that will help you to return to the Lord with all your heart.
Some of our invitations to you are the following:
- Ash Wednesday Service, Maundy Thursday Service with Seder Meal, and Good Friday Service
- Sunday Bible Study around the theme “Return to Me With All Your Heart.” The study will begin on Sunday, March 10 and end on Sunday, April 7. Topics include God’s generous heart, imitating, repenting, coming together, and making a new thing.
- Support our local ministries (Food-2-Go, Senior Lunch, or Caring Hands).
- Engage in a spiritual discipline such as fasting or prayer.
- Join us for the 30-hour famine sponsored by the Methodist Youth Fellowship.
