We'll help you look.

A dynamic place, Woodside is a multiracial congregation in partnership with two exciting denominations – The United Church of Christ and the American Baptist Churches. We are an “Open, Welcoming and Affirming” congregation, which means we embrace people without regard to race, culture, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability or economic circumstances. We think it makes us stronger. We know it makes us happier.

Here we serve God and the larger community, while plumbing the depths of the teachings of Jesus. If you’re looking for a church that takes the bible seriously but not literally, a church that helps you explore and live faith in a safe, all-questions-are-valid setting, we think we might be your place. Here you’ll find spiritual nurture, hopeful community, and a congregation that cares about God’s vision of shalom. Home.
