We rely on this church for spiritual nurture, companionship, learning, occasional pastoral care, and fun. In turn, the church relies on its volunteers.

Whatever your talents or interests, Starr King has a lot of opportunities for you to give back. From gardening in our beautiful grounds to working toward social justice, there are many ways for you to become involved. Your ideas and energy will be most welcome.

And please let us know if you have a new idea for a stand-alone event. It could raise funds, attract new members, or just be fun!  Planning a Successful Church Event


Congregation members interested in joining or assisting any of these groups should contact the listed group leader. Or just show up to a meeting. We are a friendly and welcoming fellowship! To contact group leaders, members of the church can use information from the Church Directory.
