All are welcome

Welcome to Lynnewood, a reconciling United Methodist Church in Pleasanton, California.  
We believe we come alive and follow Jesus best in a community of acceptance and support. So, if you’re searching for hope and meaning, curious about God, or just open to the idea that there might be more to life than meets the eye, join us as we dare to Question, Love and Serve. You are welcome here and together we can change the world.

Worship with us

At Lynnewood, we embrace a diversity of musical and worship expressions.  Our choirs lead us in traditional hymn singing and our Wellspring band offers modern inspiration.  Our messages are biblically-grounded and relevant to daily life.  We pray through creative expression, holy conversation, and the traditional prayers of the church.  Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey of faith, you can find a place to praise God and grow in faith here.

Be present - advent 2023

“Tis the season to be jolly,” the song says. Advent is, indeed, a season of joy. It’s also a season of worry and busy preparation; of longing and fulfillment.  We long to be present with the ones we love, to fill their lives with joy and delight, but often we find ourselves hurried, preoccupied and frustrated with our well-laid plans. We long for a world of justice, peace and hope. Yet, all around we see poverty, violence and human misunderstanding. We long to “see” God at work in the world, but sometimes God just seems absent. Our spiritual ancestors experienced the same worries and longings. God’s response was Jesus the Christ; the One who is with us always. This season we are invited to draw close to the presence of Christ, so that we can Be Present for our loved ones, our community, and for those most in need.
The world is waiting for Hope, Peace, Joy and Love -
 may they find it in us.
