Welcome to Castro Valley UMC
We are a faith community that is not perfect, but we strive to grow in God’s love and grace.
We gather every Sunday at 10 o’clock in the morning to worship in our sanctuary, but we also worship the Lord daily by remaining in God’s love and showing our love in action.
Please know that we welcome everyone to the church. If you are a visitor to the church, you will notice that you won’t be asked to stand up during a service or share your personal story unless you choose to. Rather, you will be greeted by people with warm smiles because we truly believe that everyone is a child of God and that you are welcome in this place.
We invite you to worship, grow, and serve with us!
Are you interested in learning more about the Protocol of Reconciliation and Grace through Separation? Click here for Bishop Carcaño’s statement which refers to a UM News article about the agreement and the full text of the protocol. UM News also has FAQs about the protocol.
There will be information sessions about the protocol on Sunday, February 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (after worship) and Saturday, March 7 from 10:30 to 12:30 p.m. (after the Men’s Breakfast). We will explain the protocol and respond to any questions you may have.
Please know that this is just a proposal to the 2020 General Conference; no decision has been made. Our job, as Christians, is to worship the Lord faithfully, continue to reach out to those who may be in need, and continue to grow and mature in God’s love. Our work and endeavoring to be God’s disciples will continue, and our church will remain strong with this mission while being open to learning and being ready to face the possible changes in the life of the United Methodist Church.
