Anytime we try something for the first time, it’s normal for us to be a little anxious; we don’t like the unknown territory. In order to calm any nervousness, here is a little of what you can expect on your first visit to San Francisco Gospel Church:

On a typical Sunday morning you’ll see people ranging in age from infants and toddlers to our beloved Senior Citizens. You’ll find businessmen in ties sitting next to teens in hoodies and jeans. Our congregation looks a lot like our Bay Area neighborhoods – extended families, young families, and singles. A chunk of us are from a Slavik background, as many of us emigrated from Eastern Europe.
