We pray every time we gather, but we set aside special times dedicated to intercession as a church family. Every Friday we pray as a church in the sanctuary and in the East Bay homes from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Once a month we all fast during the entire day and then come to the church sanctuary for a more extended time of prayer from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
Worship is more than a song; it's a lifestyle!
Singing is the natural language of the heart. Our worship allows us to express holy affection to a loving Father, promote unity of the Spirit, and create a space for the tangible presence of God.
APPOINTED Choir is a multicultural group of worshipers, singing every 1st and 3rd Sunday, whose anointed singing helps usher in the presence of God during our worship services. The music is varied from traditional hymns and gospel, to contemporary gospel and praise and worship.
are a gift from God. We encourage and celebrate when parents bring their children
to church to have some of our leaders pray with them. Parents, we believe that being
part of a loving church family can help you raise your children in the ways of
the Lord. It is in this church family that your children will receive love, grow
in the knowledge of the Lord, and even find their purpose.
This dedication is not a Baptism, and it does not impart salvation to the child. Baby Dedications are viewed as a confirmation between the parents and the church to raise the child in a Godly way until the child is old enough to make his/her decision in accepting Christ as his/her personal Saviour.
Child dedication is a
public commitment you make before God, the church, and family. It is a public
dedication service that provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express your
desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy
Spirit. Children are dedicated to the Lord on the second Sunday of each month.
Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. SFCC conducts water baptisms every 5th Sunday during the morning worship service.
Official ushers and greeters welcome and seat the people of the congregation, as well as maintain order during worship services.
