Just heard an awesome sermon about how the disciples sequestered in place right after Jesus' death since they were fearful for their safety, just like we are sheltering in place now to protect ourselves and to hopefully stop the spread of Covid-19 during these times, except for essential workers, who are out there in protective gear helping to save lives and provide essential services for all of us. Thanks, Pastor Dan for an awesome sermon and words of encouragement, and Christie Lind for streaming this for all of us, and Barbara for welcoming us to your beautiful home with the table set for us for communion, and anyone else who helps with our services! Thanks be to God! He is Risen Indeed!

We’re elated to have Grace Renaud as our new Music Director. Here's her bio summary and please click the link to watch her play Adagio at our church. Please welcome her with likes!

Born in Maui, Grace Renaud moved to Marin as a child and fell in love with the Bay Area. She attended Mills College (Oakland) for both her undergrad and graduate studies in pipe organ performance and studying under Sandra Soderlund. Before joining the St. Paulus community, Grace spent 25 years in her church music career in the Bay Area, working in glorious places like Grace Cathedral (6pm service musician and cantor), St. Mary's Cathedral (Spanish Mass Music director & organist/pianist) and St Ignatius Church.

She was awarded “Best Music Director” in the TBA Awards 2016 for her work on Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site with BACT! Grace has a special love for gospel choirs, flowers, and painting murals; and her favorite musical influences are J.S. Bach and Stevie Wonder. Grace’s specialties are bringing out the voice of the individual and blending the voices of a group into a refined expression of harmony and truth through music. She has four children and loves to dance!

About Our Beliefs & Values

Beliefs

Fundamental invitation: What in the world is God up to? Declarations:


  • God acts in the world delivering blessings and extending his gifts of freedom, healing, reconciliation, justice and love to the world. Broken and distorted as it is, the world is God’s workplace. The cross and resurrection confirm the gracious presence of God in Jesus in this world, declaring both radical criticism of oppressive culture and the present promise of new life in faith.

  • It is by faith that this present promise is recognized and celebrated; faith is shaped and enlivened by Bible content, prayer, worship, service and community.
