MUSIC
Music Director Ralph Hooper is an inspiring musician, organist, and composer who leads the SPC choir in music that fills the sanctuary each Sunday. Works range from well known hymns to Taize chants, from gospel to classic choral pieces, from secular pieces to original compositions of his own. In addition, Don Koc spins CD’s at certain points in our service, filling our sanctuary with the sounds of bluegrass, folk, and pop tunes. During the holiday season, you can also enjoy a moving candlelight Thanksgiving Vespers service and pre-holiday feast, or a sparkling Christmas Vespers concert given by the SPC choir for the whole community. Click below for more information about the choir and other groups who’ve appeared at the church, such as the Fallen Angels, Dry Branch Fire Squad, and Slavyanka.

MEDITATION AND HEALING GROUP
The Tuesday night Prayer and Healing Group is a long-standing tradition at SPC, started more than 35 years ago. Those present combine prayer and meditation, along with candlelight and flowers, to respond to the prayer requests written during the Sunday service, and requests for support and prayer in the healing process. All are welcome to participate in this meaningful process.

WORSHIP
The main worship service at SPC takes place at 9:30 on Sunday mornings (10:00 starting on April 1st) in our welcoming sanctuary, with warm redwood paneling, dramatic vaulted ceilings, wooden chandeliers, leaded glass windows, and clerestory windows above. Services are eclectic, un-dogmatic, and often a creative, fun, reflective, and participatory experience. You’re likely to find meditation, prayer, laughter, dialogue, music, and on occasion, drama or dance. We have an excellent choir and the musical offerings include organ and choral music, hymns, Taize chants, gospel, and secular pieces. Communion is held on the first Sunday of the month and everyone is welcome. For more information on the worship experience, click below.

YOUTH NURTURE
The whole church is in an exciting period of rebirth and this is especially true of our youth programs. We are very committed to building our programming around families with children. Childcare with arts and crafts activities is always available for children of any age who don’t want to attend the full worship service.
