If you are new to Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore or a city near the Tri-Valley or have been here a while, here is some information about who we are that may help you decide if we might be a good church for you to be discipled and join in the mission fo the gospel of Jesus Christ.
EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH OF AMERICA
Ridgeview Hope Church is a part of the Evangelical Free Church of America. We are an association of churches center around the EFCA Doctrinal Statement. You can find information about the EFCA at efca.org and our local EFCA West District here.
SERVICE TIME AND LOCATION
Ridgeview Hope meets on Sundays at 10 am at 5901 Coronado Lane in Pleasanton California.
Our typical preaching style is an exegetical verse by verse study through a book or section of scripture. We are currently preaching on advent on Sunday mornings but will soon be finishing our walk through the book of Colossians.
We typically play a variety of modern music your would find on a christian radio station along with hymns in a bit more of a contemporary style (vocals accompanied by guitar, ukulele, piano & cajon or drums). We strive for excellent music but we believe that what we are singing is more important than how perfectly we sing it. Our focus must always remain on the one we sing to not the team leading the music. For an idea of the songs we use in our congregational worship you can look at our music page to see some playlists.
We have Nursery and "Jr. Church" for those from age 0 through 3rd grade and for any who may have special circumstances. In general, those who are 4th grade and up we invite to participate and worship corporately with us. For more information on our RHC Kids family ministry please visit our RHC KIDS page.
HOW WE DRESS
Our church family is made up of a range of those who chose to come in slacks and button up shirts to those who chose to be a bit more casual and come in jeans and t-shirts. Whether you feel as though you can honor Christ in anything from suits to shorts we are happy to have you and welcome you to pursue God and worship him along with us on Sunday mornings!
