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!
Our focus in worship and in ministry in the month of September is to revisit our “position” as a congregation. Is Jesus Christ the center of our ministry? Are we going in the direction God has designed our church to go? More importantly, are we aware of where we are going?
I would like us to revisit the purpose and values of our church. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our values are to worship, to grow, and to serve. And, I would like to reflect on this mission statement and our values by reflecting upon the real map, the Scripture. All Scripture is “inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, or correction, and for training in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16, NRSV). The word of God is “living and active” (Heb. 4:12) and, “by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope” (Rom. 15:4).
So, let us revisit who we are and where we are going as we start this month of September, which is a new season for the church school and the start of the school year. Let us reroute if needed. And, by revisiting our purpose and values as Christians, let us celebrate how God has guided us so far and let ourselves be open to what God will do for us this year.
