Kindness Matters

San Ramon Valley United Methodist Church’s (SRVUMC’s) Neighborhood Network now has several years of practice in extending concrete acts of kindness and care toward congregation members. Now, it is ready to turn its efforts outward—to become a network of ‘kindness catalysts,” by offering acts of kindness to neighbors and to every person in our communities, regardless of who they are or whether they belong to a church.

 

SRVUMC: A Community of Changed Lives Changing Our World

Welcome to the San Ramon Valley

United Methodist Church

We believe that Jesus came into this world not to draw lines that exclude, but to draw wide the circle of God's inclusive love. We seek to be a community of people who practice and advocate Open Doors, Open Minds and Open Hearts.
 
If you would like to know more about our community of faith, we welcome you to join us at one of our two worship services and Sunday school for all ages on Sunday mornings, or at one of our social events or volunteer mission opportunities offered throughout the week. 

Ron Dunn, Sunny Ahn & Luke Ham - Pastors


In Case You Missed It...

Is your big BUT getting in the way of living an authentic life with God?

We've all got them. Big BUTs. There are times we all allow our big BUTs get in the way of living our lives according to God's word.

Check out this 3 minute video Pastor Sunny recently shared in worship, and see if a spiritual shape up may be just what you're missing.
