Sometimes the thought of being an Ambassador for Christ can be an overwhelming idea. But by breaking the process down to achievable categories, gaining practical skills, and walking with other Ambassadors-in-training, you can be comfortable sharing the reason for your faith and hope with nearly anyone.
1 Peter 3:15 …but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect…
Learn and grow together with us in knowledge, wisdom and character so that you may be an effective representative of the King.
Educator's Bible Study Fellowship Group
Members volunteer homes twice a month.
Members rotate leading the lessons.
We are a group of Christ focused ADVenture riders who build our members up, learn from one another and share our faith together. Our typical ride would be on a Saturday morning (1x per month) and we will ride anywhere from 3-5 hours in either the South Bay, the Santa Cruz Mountains or up the Peninsula. Special events may include one night of bike camping in the bay area. Your bike should be capable of riding both in the dirt and on the street (Dual Sport).
The vision for our group is for Christian parents and their kids at Castillero Middle School to build friendship and support for each other as part of the CMS experience - so that our kids can see what Christian community looks like in their school and where together we can be God's Church to the unchurched in a public school setting. Together, we want our families to be healthy, integrated and living out their faith 24x7 while also reaching out to other families with kids at CMS with the love of Jesus Christ. Our vision is that one day communities of faith would be strong and healthy throughout all the public schools in Almaden.
Our thoughts at this time are to make our group a relational group where we meet for bimonthly potluck so as to build relationships, encourage one another, support one another and pray for each other and the people that God brings into our lives as part of these middle school years. Our goal is to be healthy in our faith and have a positive influence in whatever school focused activities we and our kids are a part of at the school. Christian Club, WyldLife, Kids Club, Young Life, Moms in Touch, etc. - all these are formal expressions of God's Church having a visible presence as part of the CMS community. That said; there are also informal expressions of faith that can be encouraged in school-wide programs ranging from academics to sports, music, drama, etc. and can be even more important as we learn to love on each other and others in tangible ways.
Even though we are Venture Church sponsored, and we welcome Venture’s support and oversight, as a greater community of faith focused on advancing God’s whole Kingdom, we don't plan to go through any church specific curriculum. We are purposely wanting to grow friendships among all followers of Jesus at the school and build up all families of faith where together we’re able to have more collective influence. We want our good deeds, acts of service and love for each other and others shine as bright as possible to bring God the greatest glory.
We are a group who goes on hikes a couple times a month! Join our group so you can get updates for each hike that we'll go on.
Do you have a heart for the working homeless in our area?
This Meet Up group's goal is to connect Silicon Valley's working homeless to resources that will allow them a temporary stay in a room or apartment until they are able to find a place of their own. The resources will come from networking opportunities from the church community, whether this is networking with property management companies or private home owners who are willing to open up available space to provide a place to stay. We also want to put together protocol which will be set in place to protect the homeowner, property management, as well as the people themselves.
Our initial meeting will be on September 7th at 3:00pm at Starbucks (1228 Camden Ave). This will a time to brainstorm and draw out a strategic plan of how to implement this. We also plan to create a list of who we could approach to gather resources.

Paceline Cycling strives to build a community of cyclists who recognize that Christ needs to set the pace for our lives. Through monthly recreational rides and public outreach events, Paceline Cycling offers unique opportunities for combining our love for bikes and Christ. Paceline Cycling provides a non-competitive approach for developing cycling skills from beginners to challenging veteran riders. Our goal is to build a loving and friendly community where riders can connect with other riders in order to establish long lasting friendships. We host monthly recreational rides for both Mountain Biking and Road Biking as well as sponsor monthly outreach opportunities for serving the Bay Area Cycling Community. Just like links in a chain, all aspects of Paceline Cycling are connected with each other and are built for members to move freely throughout the Paceline Community. Each link is key to establishing the Paceline community and requires each member to be an active participant whether you’re a rider, planning a riding route, or serving the cycling community. We encourage all members to use their God-provided skills to support each other and find ways to serve.
