The Evergreen Presbyterian Church of San Jose had its beginnings in March 1983, when fourteen adults and six children met for worship at the home of Bill Stubbee and Rebecca Eastwood. By April 1983, the church began holding worship services on Sunday mornings at Evergreen Valley College. Church school activities were held once a month on Saturdays at the church office which, at that time, was an unoccupied dental clinic. Fellowship activities for the whole church were held monthly in homes or at community parks.
In September 1983, we began sharing an office with the Methodist Church, and we added a Church School to our Sunday morning activities. Our fellowship continued to grow, and the congregation was organized by the Presbytery of San Jose, Presbyterian Church, USA, on June 10, 1984. Fifty-three members were received that day, fourteen people were baptized and nine people were ordained as Elders. The Board of Deacons was elected in December 1984.
During 1985 and 1986 the Session has developed its organization and has involved church members on committees and as education leaders. A Choir, a Women's circle and a Youth Group were established and the church grew in numbers and in faithfulness to God.
Currently, we have approximately 15 members who meet weekly for services at the East Valley Family YMCA. We're a group that's known each other for years, raised our children together, and are now enjoying our empty-nests or early retirement. We're in that phase of life where we have the time and resources to really invest in our community, and we love doing mission projects together.
We're a friendly bunch who would love to have you visit and check us out! If you're looking for an intimate atmosphere where you can be known and integrated into a fellowship, we offer a great opportunity. All are welcome!
