Progressive Christianity Video Database

First Church Berkeley has amassed a library of videos representing progressive Christianity excerpted from worship celebrations over the past few years. You will find sermons, scripture presentations, musical presentations and rituals.

This database is sortable and searchable by a variety of categories including keywords.

We see this as a way of making progressive Christian content more widely available to the general public as well as being a resource for other progressive Christian churches.

If you find this resource helpful, consider making a donation of any size by clicking on the donate button above.

You may also watch full videos of many of our past services.

Watch the live webcast of our celebrations on Sunday morning.
