Pinole United Methodist Church is a Christian community growing in courage to stand for the call of God to seek justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with God. We recognize, acknowledge, and honor the spiritual and cultural diversity and rich traditions of our congregation and the community in which we live. We are intentional in our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Please join us in the Sanctuary Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. to celebrate Jesus Christ with cultural diversity, worship and song – a traditional service with Pastor Elmar De Ocera delivering the sermon, Children’s Moment, an anthem by the Chancel Choir and organ music by Jean Fisk, Andrew Capule, and the Organ Scholars, youth learning to play the organ under Jean’s tutelage. Also, on the first and third Sunday of every month, join us for Happy Hour of Grace which starts at 6:00 p.m.
