habitat_fb_imagepedal_for_proteinPedal for Protein is a bicycle ride that is organized by The Hunger Task Force of the Presbytery of the Redwoods. 100% of all funds raised help food pantries along the Northern Coast of California to provide protein-rich food such as Peanut Butter, Canned Tuna, Chicken and Milk to Families, Seniors and Children.

Help us reach our goal! There’s still time to donate. We’re shooting for a target goal of $4,000.00 with one week left in our Pedal for Protein fundraiser – but we still need your help! If you’ve been meaning to make a contribution, now’s the time – an anonymous donor has stepped up and offered to match our contributions! Use the envelope in Sunday’s bulletin or send your contribution directly to the church office.

We are an ORANGE church. What does that mean? It means our model takes the heart of the family (red), partners it with the light of the church (yellow), to create a powerful ORANGE team! Our goal is to provide quality instruction to your children regarding the bible and its truths while helping to empower parents to share their faith in the home!

Invite a friend!
Invite your neighbors!
Bring your grandchild!

Sunday worship is about good works. If you want to find out what Jesus had to say about life and love, visit with us on Sunday. We teach from the Bible, learn about God and open our doors to everyone. Our family welcomes you!
