to follow the risen Christ by studying His Word,
to live God’s love through service to others,
to nurture our church family,
to welcome all who enter our doors,
to tell others about God’s grace,
and to be a shining light in our part of the world.
MISSION AND PEACEMAKING
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”
The members and friends of Clayton Valley Presbyterian Church have a history of partnering with community and mission-oriented groups. From our first days in 1956, we joined Presbyterian Women in supporting mission efforts throughout the world. Closer to home, we started in 1958 by sponsoring Boy Scout Troop 364, which continues to meet at the church and serve the community. We first became active with the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County (formerly known as the Council of Churches) in 1961, living our faith through social justice advocacy. In 1985, the church founded our Children’s Center, to provide affordable child care and learning for children ages 2 through 4 in our community. Today, our mission focus is on hunger and housing in our local community, Our mission is supported by affiliation with the Contra Costa Interfaith Coalition and their programs, Habitat for Humanity, and the Contra Costa / Solano Food Bank. We also support the missions of the Presbyterian Church USA through special offerings, disaster assistance giving, and the Presbytery of San Francisco mission programs.
We participate in Winter Nights which is sponsored by the Contra Costa Interfaith Housing organization, and participate once a month in serving meals at the Pittsburg Community Church. We often have Work Days reaching out to others, such as Oakland Peace Center in Oakland, CA.
