  • He is Risen! Welcome to Almaden Neighborhood Church this morning as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life that we find in Him. If you are visiting the church for the first time, we hope that you have a warm experience of connecting with others and with God. We invite you to come back again and to connect with our community groups and Bible studies throughout the week. Let us know if there are any ways that we can encourage and support you and your family as we grow in Christ together.

This will be a great way to gain confidence in speaking English and make new friends in a low-pressure environment. Refreshments will be provided. Tell your family and friends!

  • Stations of the Cross Prayer Path We have created a prayer path on the church property based on the events leading up to Christ’s death and resurrection. This path will be available through Easter and is a great opportunity to take time to reflect and encounter Christ during this season. The path begins by the top of the stairs near the playground and is marked out with signs and an accompanying guidebook with scriptures and reflections. Stop by the church over the next few weeks and walk through it by yourself or with your family. Audio recordings can also be accessed on the church website to accompany each station atalmadenchurch.org/stations/
