Sunday Morning Communities

Emmaus Communities 

If you're new to First Pres or looking for new ways to engage with others and Scripture, join one of our four Emmaus Communities (ECs). These communities (20-60 people) are a great place to connect with adults in all stages of life and faith. This year we are exploring Questions to Live By: Who do you say that I am? Am I my brother's keeper? Why O Lord do you stand far off? What must I do to be saved? Our conversations and study of these and other questions lead us to consider more than pat answers but how we respond as people on the journey of being formed in the image of Christ.

Dates and Times: Sundays, 10:15–11:15 am during Middle Hour, resumes September 22
Location: Various, click here to find out more

Connect (her) is a gathering place for women of all ages to connect with one another and with Christ. Through small group discussion and prayer we encourage one another, build connections, and strengthen friendships. Whether you are new to First Pres Berkeley or are already a part of the First Pres community, please join us as we grow in faith and friendship.

Sunday Morning Study

SMS is an inductive group Bible study. We study God's word a complete book at a time, alternating between the Old and New Testaments. Rotating "facilitators" pose questions to help us go deeper together into the text to more fully discover what God is saying to us. We also support one another through prayer and encouragement. Drop-ins are welcome; preparation is not required. 

Dates and Times: Sundays, 10:15–11:15 am during Middle Hour
Location: Room G214, Geneva Hall
