The Name, Baptism Classes, Giving Tree, and more!

We exist to awaken this generation to new life in Jesus Christ.

We’re so glad you’re here! If you’re new to Awakening, we would love to get to know you and for you to get to know us! The best way to do that is by filling out a Connection Card.

Advent Week 1 | The Son of Promise

There is just something about the name of Jesus. His is the name that will not go away.  Two thousand years later, the name of Jesus is still a part of our cultural landscape. Political people use His name to try to win votes or an argument. Hurting people pray in His name to bring comfort and help. Spiritual people sing songs about the name of Jesus. And just about every person has yelled His name when smashing their finger with a hammer. Why? What is it about the name of Jesus? Where did his name come from? Why is it important? And what significance does it hold for us today?

Bring a friend and join us this Sunday for Week 1: The Son of Promise as we dive into Matthew 1:1!

Adult & Child Baptism Classes

Our Baptism class is coming up THIS Sunday, December 3rd at 10:45am for adults in Room 29 and Monday, December 4th at 6pm for kids and their parents via Zoom. Baptism is an external symbol of the internal transformation that occurs when someone crosses that line of faith and trusts in Jesus as their rescuer and leader. It was Jesus who not only commanded baptism but was baptized himself. So if you’re a follower of Jesus and ready to follow Him in the obedient step of baptism, then we’d love to see you at baptism class and celebrate that decision with you on Sunday, December 10th!

Del Mar Giving Tree

We’ve always said Del Mar is more than just a place to meet but a people to love. Our annual Giving Tree provides students nominated by their teachers a chance to have their Christmas wishes come true!

You can participate in 2 ways: take a tag off the tree and return the tag and gift at church by 12/17 OR you can give online or via check and specify the gift to the “Compassion Projects” fund where it will be a monetary gift that will go towards the Del Mar Giving Tree through 12/17. (Donations to the Compassion Projects fund may be tax deductible and will appear on the individuals’ year-end giving statements).

Thank you for your generosity!

Year End Giving

As you prepare your year end giving would you consider partnering significantly with us to awaken this generation to new life in Jesus? Thank you so much for your generosity and partnering with us to bring the hope of Jesus to the Silicon Valley and beyond. Please be sure that any year end financial gifts are given online by 12/31.

Calling all Young Professionals to come to our first ever YP panel!
