Worship and Ministry

Online worship guide and resources for prayer, liturgical and ministry needs

In this time of pandemic, our first priority is ensuring the health & safety of all who worship. Based on current California COVID-19 tiers, our churches are hosting online and outdoor services. Please refer to the listing of churches and worship links; since times and dates can change, be sure to visit church websites for updates. No walls are needed to praise God!

Education for Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) is designed to prepare lay persons to live out by word and deed the promises made at baptism — to love God, to serve Christ, and to proclaim the Gospel. It’s a program of The School of Theology Programs Center of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. EfM enables baptized Christians to relate their faith to their lives and ministries in the world.
