What We Do
Jesus didn't come to start a religion; he came to start a relationship.
Gather in Community
The cornerstone of our life as a church, we come together on Sundays from 10-11am for worship, and a coffee/lecture hour afterwards. There's no dress code, creed, or belief system you need to have to join us, and no one will pressure you to participate in anything you don't want to do. We take Communion every Sunday, but you don't need to be a member to participate, nor do you need to be baptized, confirmed, or even a professed Christian. Jesus welcomed everyone, and so do we!
Study. Serve. Connect.
We're a church in transition, but a life of faith isn't just going to worship on Sundays. Our gratitude to God means we act as God's hands in the world, and our faith grows in community. From Bible study to book groups to social justice activism, get connected at Campbell UCC.
The United Church of Christ
God is still speaking...
Our tradition is rooted in social justice and emphasizes education, and our motto is, "Never place a period where God has placed a comma." The UCC is Congregational in nature, meaning that although we have the advantage of being part of a larger body, each individual community has the freedom to question and determine for itself what it means to be the church.
Music, fellowship, possibly cookies.
First, we had some of the best singer-songwiters in the country come though via our Lighted Window Concert Series. Then, we began our own fledgling community theatre with Talkbacks afterwards, and that's been wildly successful too. Now, we're broadening our horizons to include community karaoke, mystery theatre and more! Get tickets for the latest events here.
Who We Are
We don't have all the answers, but we sure like to discuss the questions!
Rev. Naomi Schulz
Pastor Naomi grew up on the Irish coast where she spent her childhood roaming the hills and shores. Steeped in the lore of sacred wells and other "thin places" where the divine and mundane meet, she loves sharing her passion for Celtic spirituality. Before entering ministry she studied Cultural Geography at UC Berkeley, and worked as an environmental justice activist for safe chemical weapons disposal here in the United States. Naomi has served as a pastor with the United Church of Christ since graduating from the Pacific School of Religion in 2015. In her free time Naomi loves reading with her son, dancing, knitting, and finding new hills and shores to explore.
