Weddings and Baptisms
A Christian marriage is a covenant between two individuals and their relationship with God. Traditional or contemporary, your wedding should be a reflection of what is most important to each of you. We welcome the privilege of sharing your testament to one another and to your faith. If you would like to plan or discuss a wedding, contact Pastor Jeanie at
Whether for infants, children, youth or adults, the act of baptism affirms a commitment of faith, acceptance of Christ’s church, and a desire to receive the grace and forgiveness of God. We embrace the opportunity to share this blessing with you. If you would like to plan or discuss a baptism, contact Pastor Jeanie at (916) 802-7728 or email her at
Time with our Children
We know that children have an amazing ability to share and communicate. Just as we learn how to be family by sharing family experiences and traditions, we build our worshipping community by including children – in the telling of stories and in helping them understand and share. At Eventide, the children are invited to participate by reading scripture, playing music, and performing in dramatic or playful reenactments. It’s okay if they need to giggle and wiggle, and we make sure they know that we always welcome their questions, interests, thoughts and prayers. Our “Children’s Time” invites kids to join the pastor to explore the meaning of scripture and to glean inspiration to pass it on. We value children and their potential, and know that we can also learn from them.
In ancient days, communities of people would gather to worship, study and care for one another and their community. Today, we gather Sunday at eventide to worship, meditate, and study together; to care for each other and the world; to be deepened with music and art; to share the nourishment of a simple meal; and to claim the love and justice of Jesus Christ. We gather to serve in our community, our nation and the world.
