Church Groups

Outside of service, Our groups provide opportunities to connect, Serve and create community.

Men’s Group

Topics range from NBA playoff viewing, discussing the works of Emerson, and how technology will influence how we live. Drink and food is normally served, and firepits are often part of the scene.  The next gathering is Thursday evening, September 29th, at the home of Jim Brommers Bergquist. Contact Jim at jim@orindachurch.org to receive emails and more information.

Women’s Spirituality

The Women’s Spirituality Group meets monthly in the homes of various women in the church and larger community. Each meeting is structured around a particular theme, which ranges from holiday stress management to love & boundaries. Contact Kelsey Peterson at kelseyhpeterson@gmail.com for more information and to get on the email list!

Senior’s Luncheons (65+ Club)

This group meets once a month for lunch, fellowship, and discussion. Topics vary from "Grandparenting" to "Transcendentalism".  Our next meeting is Monday, October 3rd, in the Fellowship Hall.  RSVP to jim@orindachurch.org, and plan to bring $5 for lunch.

WRITERS GROUP

Meets the first Wednesday of each month, from 10-11:45 am in the Fireside Room. Writing can be a spiritual discipline, or just a chance to get some-thing off your chest! Each month we respond to a prompt and share the stuff we've been working on. Contact jim@orindachurch.com or ekersten@aol.com to join.

Care & Fellowship

Care & Fellowship is a ministry of the Orinda Community Church, charged with creating deeper community within the membership.  This may take place by providing food at a Memorial Service, or helping with a night of games and food.  If interested in serving in this way, contact Rev. Jim Brommers Bergquist at jim@orindachurch.org

All-Church Potluck and Program

We gather once a quarter to share a meal, and enjoy the gifts of our congregation.  Past programs have included a storytelling night, a "talent/no-talent show", and reports from those who were given a $250 grant to share (The Generosity Challenge).

Care Team Ministry

Each month, one of our four Care Teams here at O.C.C. are ready to offer support to other members of the congregation.  If you could use a meal or visit, or know of someone who could use the same (or a word of encouragement or prayer), please contact Rev. Jim Brommers Bergquist jim@orindachurch.org or Rev. Sally Train sally@orindacommunitychurch.org.
