WELCOME TO

FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF SONOMA

FCC Sonoma is alive and well! During the pandemic, we are finding ways to worship God, to care for and support one another, to pursue new ideas and grow spiritually, to seek justice and serve those in need, and to advocate for the care of the earth. Click here for information about Zoom worship services, sermons and music on YouTube, weekly newsletters, and ways that you can be involved in the ongoing life of FCC Sonoma.

We laugh freely and rejoice in the wonder of God’s love and care, while investing our energy, our courage, and our creativity in building a world of justice and equal opportunity for all.

 

We affirm our high calling to care for all creation and to seek justice for the oppressed, ever-conscious of the socioeconomic dimensions of climate change and ecological disruption and its effects on global inequality.


We are spiritual seekers who embrace Jesus’ message of love and compassion, and often find ourselves more comfortable with questions than answers. We value science, culture, and the wisdom of other religious traditions.

In the spirit of love, we welcome people of every age, economic status, ethnicity, physical ability, nationality, race, religious background, and sexual orientation to participate fully in all aspects of our church’s life and ministry.



A MESSAGE FROM

OUR PASTOR

Rev. Dr. Curran Reichert

on sabbatical through August 15, 2022

FROM OUR SABBATICAL INTERIM PASTOR
Rev. Tim Boeve

June 20, 2022

 

Covid: the cases just keep on coming,. . . and by the time you read this you will have learned that I fell victim myself to this highly contagious strand of the Corona virus. Ironically, I originally crafted this article on very day I later tested positive for the virus. (Thanks to Dr. John for providing me with a home test!). I had written about our need for all of us to stay vigilant in the face of this variant. Well, somewhere along the way, apparently, I wasn’t as careful as I should have been. Oh, by the way, did you know our campus at FCC is awfully quiet this week with the entire Adobe Preschool shut down due to some of the teachers being infected with the virus. Hopefully the school will be up and running again when you read this article, and me too.

In the event you come down with Covid, you are over 65 and/or have certain underlying health conditions, it is recommended that you get on the anti-viral drug, Paxlovid, asap, which helps relieve the symptoms and gets you feeling better sooner. Several of our own FCC folks have found it effective.

For our June 26 worship service, I am very happy to say that the Rev. Alan Claassen will be with us to share how the Spirit has been at work in his life and also has a special song that he wrote for the Courage and Renewal work he is engaged with. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say--at a safe distance--and to see Betsy too.    

Marge Evans Memorial: Finally let’s be in prayer for all the folks coming to attend the Memorial Service for Marge Evans this coming Saturday, June 25, and especially for Todd and Matt. May this truly be a healing time for all, and a wonderful tribute to Marge as we mourn her passing together. And may everyone stay well.

Rev. Tim
