God has called us to have an active role in providing hope to the world around us, which means that we are to have a personal ministry that contributes to the extension of His Kingdom. (Matthew 5:12-16, Acts 4:32, Ephesians 2:10)
We believe God has strategically positioned South Bay Church in the Silicon Valley because of the wealth of talent, resources, and diverse population that can so deeply impact the world for Him. We encourage you to participate in the work of bringing hope to the world around you by serving, giving, and using your influence to take His Message to the ends of the earth.
One of our highest values at South Bay Church is serving and loving our world, just as Jesus did. A great way to do that is by serving our city at key events, like city-wide Festivals. Below is a list of some of these events. Some of them are initiated and organized by our church and some of them are primarily sponsored and organized by the city, but we provide volunteers to help run the events.

South Bay Church organizes multiple neighborhood-wide Easter Egg hunts as a way to love our city and serve our surrounding communities. Over 300 volunteers serve at two HUNT sites and give away over 40,000 plastic eggs with candy.
We are very excited to serve our community through partnering with Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce. Sunnyvale’s Art & Wine Festival, Silicon Valley’s oldest neighborhood festival, will showcase 325 of the area’s best artists and craftspeople, local wines, micro-brewed beer, and amazing food prepared by community groups. This year we will host a face painting and craft booth and staff the events information booth!
The Santa Clara Art & Wine Festival is a tradition which brings the community together for one common purpose: to support vital community groups and organizations in Santa Clara. To date, the festival has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities and attracts over 50,000 people to Central Park. South Bay Church provides 200+ volunteers at this event to help with kid crafts, park clean up, city booths, etc.
Mountain View brings an authentic German experience to its city with the annual Oktoberfest celebration. Volunteering during the event is a great way for us to serve our community and share God’s love in practical ways.
We are serving and beautifying the schools in our community. You can serve with your Life Group, family, or come and meet new friends as we love on our city!
South Bay Church is active in serving our local schools, teachers, and parents. You can be a part of making a difference through Parent Seminars, Beautification Projects, Teacher Appreciation efforts, and Family Sponsorship. To receive more info, write us a note below.
South Bay Church is launching a new multi-church initiative with the vision to provide a loving home for every child in the foster system. The long-term effects on children who grow up without a loving and stable home is tragic. Caring for abused and neglected children not only meets an immediate need, but is a powerful way to pro-actively address issues like homelessness, drug abuse, human trafficking, prostitution, and teen pregnancy. We believe the best way to see a transformed Bay Area tomorrow is to care for vulnerable children today.
At South Bay, we know that we can reach beyond borders and impact the world. We send multiple teams on international missions trips each year and also partner with the following organizations on a global level.
Sponsor a child in poverty. Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
Sponsor a missionary or child in Asia. Gospel for Asia trains and sends native missionaries among the unreached countries in Asia.
South Bay Church has a strategic partnership through Compassion International with Nazareth Emmanuel United Church in Nazareth, Ethiopia. This church is in a city where the average family income is $7 a month. For more information or for ways to get involved, please contact our offices.
We pray and hope that you take the step to be used by God to make a lasting difference in the world!
