In our digital age, you can connect with anyone, anywhere, anytime. But real relationships take more than just a status update. They take time, space, and commitment. We believe that one of the primary ways we grow in Christ is through community. Come grow in community with our brothers and sisters here at First Pres Hayward!


Our 2018 Men’s Retreat will be held at Alliance Redwoods Conference Center in Occidental, California (about 2 hours away) from Friday, March 9th-Sunday, March 11th. $160 covers food, lodging, and programs for the three-day, two-night stay in the serene forest. Activities like swimming, hiking, basketball, and using the recreational room are also included! Extra activites (for an additional cost) include zip lining through the trees, canopy tours, climbs, leaps, and more. See their website for more details.

Scholarships and sponsorships available. Checks can be made out to First Presbyterian Church of Hayward, indicating the Men’s Retreat in the memo line.

Our Philosophy

People grow best when they are connected in healthy small groups. We were never intended to live life alone, but we were created for relationships.
