Mt. Tam United Methodist Church Pastor Kim Smith, who helped steer her congregation through the tumult of the pandemic with programs like “At Home & Together,” a move to virtual gatherings via Zoom and Facebook Live, has decided to retire after 11 years at the church.

On Sunday, July 11th, parishioners will welcome Pastor Luke Ham and his family. Pastor Luke has served most recently in Carmel, is married and has two young children. Pastor Luke’s first Sunday in worship will be followed by an ice cream social outside in the church’s garden at 10:30am. The church’s services are every Sunday at 10:30am, in person or online on Facebook (@mttamchurch) and all are always welcome.

Mt. Tam Church is a thriving congregation with folks of all ages. They welcome people of every age, racial or ethnic background, nationality, physical or mental ability, education, marital or socioeconomic status, sexual and gender identity into full participation in the life of this faith community. The church’s children and youth programs focus on God’s love and grace and on working to create a world of peace and justice. Their youth group’s motto is “Faith, Fun and Service!” Regular programs for kids and youth will resume in September.

The 411: ​Mt. Tam United Methodist Church is at 410 Sycamore Ave, across from Mill Valley Middle School – the church with the sign! MORE INFO.
