Gospel  Academy: Conflict Resolution, Sept 20 - Oct 11

We will apply these principles to our current conflicts in this workshop-style class on Wednesdays 7:30-9pmSeptember 20-October 11. Please note location change to: 1319 Solano Ave, Albany, CA.  Email Jackie ( to sign up. Childcare provided.

Membership Classes, November 5 & 12

Membership classes are an opportunity to become familiar with Solano's beliefs, history, mission and structure. It’s also a time to meet others and learn what it means to partner with your brothers and sisters in Christ for ministry. At the end of the class you can prayerfully decide, in your own time, whether or not you are ready to become a member. Email to sign up and for more information.

Women’s Discussion Morning: Saturday, September 23 
Are you interested in having an honest discussion about infertility?  Solano Women's Ministry would like to invite you to a panel where several members of our congregation will share their experiences with infertility.  Whether this is an issue that affects you or someone you know, or you'd simply like to learn more, we hope this will be a safe space to just listen, or for women to share their own stories and receive support and prayer.  The panel will be held September 23rd, from 9:30-11 am, location TBA.  Please contact Jackie Knapp at for questions and to RSVP.

Help serve the those in need in the East Bay.
As Jesus encouraged us to serve the poor & disenfranchised in our communities, Solano has for several years made homeless outreach a central part of our mission. As such, a year ago we helped establish Albany's free shower program for people experiencing homelessness. We are currently looking for occasional or regular volunteers to help with a variety of tasks on Thursday mornings (8-9am) OR afternoons (1-3pm) for sandwich prep, sandwich distribution, welcoming team, etc. For more details contact Evelyne St-Louis at
