There is free parking at Shoreline Park. See map for directions.
Where do I park at Sunnyvale Presbyterian?
There is ample free parking in our lot on Fremont Avenue. To enter from the east, drive past the entrance to the parking lot and make a U-turn. Feel free to use one of the designated Visitor Parking spots, next to the Children's ministry building (on the right side if you're facing Trinity Court).
Is there something for my kids?
On Easter Sunday, we welcome kids in worship.
At the 6:30 a.m. service, children are welcome for the Sunrise service outdoors.
During the 10 am service in our sanctuary, kids can sit together with their families or check out the "praygrounds" in the sanctuary—spaces designed specifically for kids!
Nursery (Child care) is available during the 10 am service for ages 6 months—Kindergarten.
Stop by the Welcome Table in Trinity Court—our volunteers will greet you, help you find where to go, and get your kids checked in.
All staff and volunteers are Safe Church trained. For more information about our Safe Church program, click here.
Our Easter Sunrise service is casual, come as you are! It will be an outdoor service. Feel free to bring a folding chair.
The 10 am Traditional Service will include Easter hymns (organ, choir, brass instruments), traditional liturgy, and end with a sing-along of the Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah.
What should I wear?
People wear everything from casual to “Sunday best.” Come in whatever makes you most comfortable. You’ll notice everyone wearing nametags - it’s so much easier meeting new people when everyone knows each other by name. Stop by our Welcome table and pick up a nametag.
Is SVPC fully open and affirming of LGBTQ+ persons?... (YES!)
God calls us to be fully open and affirming of LGBTQ+ persons. We embrace diversity in race, sexuality, gender, class, immigration status, ability, and age. You are a beloved child of God, full stop!
We seek to be a community that welcomes and affirms all. In that spirit, on May 21, 2020, the session (governing body) of Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church moved, seconded and approved the following statement:
Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make our church a true community of hospitality, Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church works for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people in the life, ministry and witness of our church and society.
As a congregation we are doing the work of listening and learning so that we can fully live into this affirming statement.
We invite everyone to help us build a more-inclusive and welcoming community by wearing pronoun pins or stickers. Though most people are cisgender (having a gender identity which matches the sex they were assigned at birth) many people experience gender differently that is not obvious by their appearance or name. Just as it is polite to call someone by their preferred name, it is polite to refer to them by their preferred pronouns. Wearing pronoun buttons/stickers makes everyone’s pronouns explicit and helps to normalize asking and talking about them, as opposed to assuming or guessing. More information about why pronouns are important.
