Missional Map

communitySERVICE

We believe that the Gospel of Jesus changes our lives spiritually, but also relationally and physically. The Good News is not just about spiritual salvation, or just about social change. It includes both.

The Kingdom of God motivates us to serve the disadvantaged in our community, by providing key services, building authentic relationships, and giving a reason for the hope we have in Jesus.

The Old Testament frequently commands God's people to especially care for the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow. People in need are close to God's heart, and our church is engaged in ministering to people in a variety of ways. To find out more about any of these ministries, please email us.

englishclasses

A team from Neighborhood Church offers free ESL (English as a Second Language) classes in a nearby community center on Monday nights from 7-8 pm. We love our neighbors in three ways: providing a needed skill to succeed in a new country, building new friendships, and presenting the Gospel of Jesus. If you are interested in teaching or learning (or know someone who would like to learn English) in our ESL classes, contact Pastor Josh.

fosterkids

Neighborhood Church plays a key role in Sonoma County's Royal Family Kids Camp and Club. A coalition of churches provides a week of fun and community for local foster kids, where they learn about God's love for them. The weeklong camp takes place each summer and training takes place in the Spring.

A monthly club and mentoring program enables us to develop even stronger relationships with some of the children. A number of the leaders of RFK are part of Neighborhood Church and we strongly support its work in our community. To learn more, please email us or visit the RFK website.

nomadicshelter

In the cold, wet winter months the Redwood Gospel Mission needs more space to house homeless guests and has started the Entertaining Angels Nomadic Shelter program, in which community churches provide a meal and a place to sleep for the homeless on a rotating basis. Our church is involved in this program and has been blessed to host people in need of food and a place to stay.

benevolenceteam

A percentage of all money given to our church's general fund is designated for benevolence ministry. If people in our church are facing financial hardships they can bring their need to the benevolence team, which determines how we can best help out of the funds we have. When we have surplus funds they are distributed to local ministries and charities that serve the Sonoma County community. Our benevolence ministry enabled us to quickly support our church members who lost homes in the 2017 fires, and to help others in our community recover.
