A church community is a special gathering of people from diverse backgrounds.
Music is an important part of Sunday worship and many members sing in the choir with accompaniment from piano, organ and special appearances by saxophone, flute and guitar.
Committees are the driving force of the church and a large proportion of members and friends are a part of these important teams. Our Women’s Fellowship team runs the successful long-running West Spain Thrift Shop on campus, creating community for regular shoppers and funding local charities. Our Men’s Group is a supportive group, serving the church.
There are a variety of fellowship groups such as monthly potlucks or dining out gatherings (Circles of 8 and High-Nooners), quarterly game nights, and annual church camp. San Francisco LGBT Pride parade marchers (Church Ladies and Gents for Gay Rights) and our LGBT group demonstrate our open and affirming status in action.
Church activities and our minister’s message are collected in our monthly newsletter, The Grapevine.

CIRCLES OF 8
In Circles of Eight, members and friends of the Church get together in small groups (of eight people, more or less) in a social setting, usually in the evening.
Similar to Circles of 8, High Nooners are small groups of congregation members and friends who meet for lunch usually in a restaurant setting. High Nooners tend to favor weekday afternoon gatherings.
Four times a year, members, family and friends meet for an evening filled with fun, food, and games.
MUSIC – CHANCEL CHOIR & HANDBELL CHOIR
The mission of the Chancel Choir and Handbell Choir is to support the Assembly and enhance the worship experience.
The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning) Faith group at First Congregational Church (FCC) is a faith based social group, open to all FCC members.
CHURCH LADIES & GENTS FOR GAY RIGHTS
Sponsored by the First Congregational Church of Sonoma UCC, the Church Ladies & Gents for Gay Rights is a contingent in the annual San Francisco Pride Parade.
Camp Cazadero offers church members, friends, and family a time to get to know each other in a more relaxed, unhurried environment.
