Becoming a Member

If you are led to become a member of Piedmont Community Church, or just want to get more information about our congregation, we invite you to attend one of our New Member or “Come and See” gatherings.  These are held 3 times each year — in fall, winter and spring.  They are led by the pastors, and take place at the  church, in either the Murdock Room (located next to the Sanctuary), or in the Guild Parlor (located in the Guild Hall).

If you can’t make a gathering, you can meet personally with Rev. Don Ashburn, Rev. Steve Schibsted, or Rev. Scott Kail at a mutually agreed upon place and time.  At each of these times, we’ll explore our faith journeys, discuss the life of the congregation and envision your place within it.

If you would like to join the church, you will be welcomed into membership during a Sunday morning worship service.  If you have not been baptized, you will receive the sacrament of baptism.  This can be performed either in public worship, or in private.  Piedmont Community Church recognizes baptisms from all Christian denominations as being sufficient expressions of God’s grace.

The next New Member gathering will be on:
            Saturday, October 16, 9 – 11 AM


Regardless of membership status, all are invited to participate in church activities or to seek pastoral care. Please visit the upcoming events page for a list of current happenings.  For more information or to schedule a meeting please contact Dr. Don Ashburn at or (510) 547-5700, ext. 105; or contact Rev. Scott Kail at or (510) 547-5700, ext. 110
