To all those members, attendees, friends and neighbors of AlamedaCRC: we thank you for your support and prayers as we have suspended all in-person worship, ministry, and activities within our church for the time being. We will continue to support you as God leads us through our online worship services, digital small-group meetings, phone and email prayers as well as benevolent assistance as we’re able. Thank you for your questions about giving online and where we can communicate with each other. Check out our Alameda CRC Events Facebook page as well for responding to needs and sharing ideas for sheltering in place survival techniques!
In all things, may God be glorified through this season of our continual depending on His mercy and grace.
Please note: The Alameda Children’s Dream Choir has been suspended until further notice.
Coffee Break, a Bible study that has its roots in inductive Bible study, begins a new season on Tuesday, September 10. Inductive bible studies involve reading a passage and asking questions about the text. It is thinking about what the Bible says itself. Discussion grows out of those questions. This women’s study meets on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Tuesdays beginning on September 10. Gathering and chatting begins at 7:00 pm. The Bible study begins at 7:30 pm and ends with prayer between 8:30 and 9:00 pm. This year the scripture study begins with Mark 7. Lessons are available from Luann. All women are welcome to join this group.
Alameda CRC will be hosting a Children’s Choir Camp called Blast Off – Discovering the God of Creation this coming July 15-18 (Monday-Thursday) led by our director Suk Lee for children who have completed Kindergarten through 8th grade. It will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and there is no cost. There will be a performance on Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. following a pizza dinner at 6:00.
Please join us on Saturday, June 8, at 11 a.m., at the Alameda Christian Reformed Church (2914 Encinal Ave.), to celebrate and to give thanks for the 75 years of blessings that ALAMEDA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL has provided to its students, staff, and the community!
Friday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Join us for our Good Friday Communion service.
Sunday, April 21 at 10:30 a.m.
We will be joined by the Alameda Korean Church as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection with the cantata “Two Crowns.” Our service will be followed by an Easter brunch.
Lent is a forty-day preparation period for Good Friday and Easter which begins on Ash Wednesday and continues through the Thursday before Easter, excluding Sundays. In this penitential season, Christians around the world renew their commitment to prayer (right relationship with God), fasting (right relationship with self), and giving (right relationship with others). These spiritual disciplines slow us down, help us to see the world and our faith in a new way, and lead us toward greater shalom and justice.
We use the color purple in the sanctuary during Lent. The color symbolizes the
pain and suffering leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus, but also, as the color
of royalty, it anticipates the final resurrection and the hope of newness that will
be celebrated in Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
A new year of “Coffee Break,” a woman’s Bible study, starts on Tuesday, September 11, at 7:30 pm. They will study the gifts of the Spirit in the church. Contact Luann for more information.
