FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I wear?
As for many in Berkeley, casual-dressy attire describes the style of our community.
What about my children?
We love children, youth and families and invite them to participate in all aspects of worship and community life. Children and youth are welcomed to participate in our service of worship. Following our time of singing, communion and children’s blessing, kids ages 0-11 are invited to age-appropriate classes. They will gather with their teachers in the narthex and will then be led to their classes. At the close of the service, parents can pick up their children in the church courtyard. Babies and caregivers are invited to make use of our nursery upstairs. Families are also welcomed to keep their children in the entire service if preferred.
What if I don't know anybody?
Berkeley Covenant welcomes newcomers each week. There are greeters to welcome you at the door who can answer any questions you might have. Though we will do everything we can to make you feel at home, we also encourage you to introduce yourself to others. After all, the person next to you may be there for the first time as well!
What should I expect?
While our service is rooted in ancient Christian liturgy, we believe that liturgy should be as accessible as it is transcendent. Whether you are new to church or a longtime Christian, you’ll find others just like you, engaging in a form of worship that is participatory, joyful, and reverent. In our service, we sing both classic hymns and contemporary songs of worship accompanied by different musicians who are part of our community. We pray for our city, our church, and the world. We read portions of Scripture and hear a sermon that relates God’s Word to our life. Learn more about Sunday Worship here.
