Welcome

If your idea of what a church ought to be is open minded, warm hearted, and bright spirited, then we invite you to worship at Niles Discovery Church.

Here, we take God seriously, and try to take ourselves less seriously.

Here, we bring our minds, as well as our hearts and souls, to knowing the Bible. Our questions are as important as the answer we find together.

Here, children learn and grow, adults find good friends, and the love of Christ is shared with all.

We have an outstanding Choir, Youth Programs, and Sunday School.

We are a progressive, open and affirming church that serves the Bay Area Community, uniting in God’s love for all people regardless of race, age, nationality, physical ability, marital status, family configuration, mental ability, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, religion, faith, or creed, encouraging them on the adventure we call the faith journey.

We don't think that Christianity is about believing unbelievable stuff about God or Jesus or the Bible. It's about a lifelong journey of relationship with God that grows and changes as we do.

We recognize that we have been given a fantastic and diverse world within which to live, work and play and have a responsibility to care for it. We enjoy our relationships with faithful persons of other religious persuasions and seek to work cooperatively with all to make our communities better places.

So check out our site and see that we are serious about our faith, our service, and our fun together. Then come and share worship with us any Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.

Peace,

Jeffrey Spencer
Senior Pastor and Teacher
