Service to the Community

Tomales Church has been serving its community for over 150 years.

We recently held a fund raising concert, called, “Kick Off To Summer Concert” in support of our Community Emergency Fund which supports those in need. We had a great time. You can watch it here.

We make our sanctuary available for weddings and memorial services, and our historic cemetery still serves families in the church and local community. The fellowship hall is open for family and community events and we are the back-up site for the weekly Food Pantry.

Several of our members are involved in the work of the Tomales Food Pantry. Others are active in the Tomales Regional History Center, Dillon Beach Emergency Readiness Training, and Petaluma Ecumenical Properties (PEP Housing).
The entire congregation participates enthusiastically in community events, especially Tomales Founders Day.

Our church is pleased to partner with COTS and the Mary Isaak Center in Petaluma, who do wonderful work in helping those who suffer from homelessness. We donate clothing and household goods on an ongoing basis.

Our church hosts or sponsors a variety of events and activities in Tomales and, every Tuesday morning at 10am we host a “Sit and Fit” session to which everyone is welcome.

We donate money towards scholarships for seniors graduating from Tomales High School and donate items for their PTA Holiday Bazaar. Each year we make a financial contribution to the West Marin Community Services Holiday Gift Program.
