We are a small community church, founded in Palo Alto in 1896. Using the gifts of our members, we seek to expand the reach of this congregation to bring the blessings of a life of faith in God, as revealed in Jesus Christ, to an ever-widening circle within our community, and joining with other churches, to share the Church’s mission to the ends of the earth.
First Christian Church of Palo Alto holds regular Sunday services at 10:30 AM. We have special services at other times during the week, including Kidz Klub on alternate Wednesday evenings and Youth Group on alternate Friday evenings. We also sponsor and participate in events throughout the month and year, including Vacation Bible Camp, which can be found on our Church Calendar and Special Events pages. Our Pastor’s Blog contains bi-weekly thoughts from Dr. Jon McCauley Smith, which can also be found in our Newsletters. If you are a member of our Church, you can also access our Member Directory on our site (a password-protected area). If you would like access to this area, please send us an email to request a password.
