The Methodist Society of Amador Valley held its first service on July 17, 1966 in a parsonage garage on Santa Rita Road. Between 1966 and 1972, this growing faith community met at 4 different locations: Fredericksen Elementary School in Dublin, the chapel at Camp Parks Job Corps, St. Augustine’s Church, and at the garage of the Lynnewood Estate of R. R. Stuart on Foothill Boulevard.
Groundbreaking for the present site at 4444 Black Avenue took place on June 4, 1972 and the Fellowship Hall was built one year later. The church settled on the name “Lynnewood” to honor the granddaughter of a founding member, who was named Lynne.
Since those early years, Lynnewood has grown in size and cultural diversity. Today we are a vibrant congregation inviting people of all ages, races, abilities, sexual orientations, and theological viewpoints. The sanctuary welcomes over 250 people to worship God and serve the world. The church is also home to Quarry Lane Preschool and a variety of groups to meet the needs of the Pleasanton community. Our doors are open to all!
