Campbell United Methodist Church
South Bay Area Church

REGULAR SERVICES – Sunday: 10:00am CHAPEL COMMUNION – Tuesday: 6:00pm

In this season, we are “making the road by walking” — following an invitation to walk together through the whole story of God’s hopes and dreams for creation, seen through the lens of the Christian tradition. Using the structure suggested by a recently-published book by Brian McLaren, we are going back to the beginning, trying to re-capture what Christianity looked like before it was a rich and powerful religion, before it had buildings and budgets and institution-sustaining agenda. We join a movement of progressive Christians all over the world who are seeking to re-make what it means to be the Church.
