New Time for Children’s Sunday School

Beginning January 8, 2017

Beginning on January 8, 2017, our Sunday School and youth groups will start at 9 a.m. Classes begin earlier than the worship service so that there will be plenty of time for a full lesson, and so that the children and their teachers can be in church for Communion.

We’ve experimented for the past year with different starting times, and hopefully, this time will work for families. If you have kids, please come check out our extraordinary programs for them. Here are the schedule and locations: (more…)

New Church Bylaws

Did you know that the original Church of the Incarnation Bylaws and Letters of Incorporation were drafted on June 181895? And that the term for these Bylaws and Letters of Incorporation was only 50 years? Since this draft, there have been only two minor modifications, the first in 1949 eliminating the 50-year term and the second in 2003 stating that the Church is a nonprofit religious organization for California law purposes.

Who We Are

The Church of the Incarnation is an inclusive community of faith, following Jesus Christ as a parish of The Episcopal Church. We are a downtown urban church. We recognize that Christ has no body now on earth but ours, and we are committed to carrying out Christ’s charge to love one another through service, worship and prayer. Our abiding values are those expressed in our Baptismal Covenant with Jesus Christ, and those values guide us in our life of faith.

We believe that Christ calls us to strive for justice and peace among all people while respecting the dignity of every human being. While we are partners in God’s work throughout the world, we are called in particular to respond to the needs for both bodily and spiritual nourishment of the community where we live, work, and worship.

The Episcopal Church is a member of the global Anglican Communion which has a common root in the Church of England. Anglican churches follow a middle path between the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant denominations. The Episcopal Church includes diocese in the United States, Mexico, Central America, Ecuador and Taiwan.
