My family is going on a trip to Yosemite/San Francisco! I'll be gone July 13-22. I've told my parents I'm wanting to find a church to go to on the 18th, and they are letting me!

Here's the list of churches I've found (all Reformed, of course, or at least claim to be). And all have websites, and most have audio sermons, but I haven't listened to the sermons yet. That day we will be leaving Monterey and making our way along the coast to Palo Alto:

First Baptist (Monterey)- Pastor Nathan Rehn

Covenant OPC (Castroville)- Pastor Joel Robbins

First Baptist of San Lorenzo Valley (Felton)- Pastor Steve Watkins

Reformed Heritage Church (Campbell)- Pastor Gary Wagner

Lakewood Village Baptist (Sunnyvale)- Pastor George Stevenson

First OPC (Sunnyvale)- Pastor Don Owsley

Covenant OPC (San Jose)- Pastor Jeff Landis

Another question: Since my family is no saved, they think they are, and thus partake of the Lord's Supper whenever it is served, should I decide to not go to one that is serving the Lord's Supper that day? Of course, they would be the responsible ones if they partook, and it is such a joy to partake of the Lord's Supper for me.

It is not your responsibility to fence the Table of the Lord. It is the responsibility of the Elders of the congregation to do so. YOU are called by your Lord to come and commune with Him and thus after making preparation to do so, you MUST go and offer your thanksgiving and adoration to the One Who bought you with so great a price. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Yes, amen! That's the direction my thoughts were headed. Please pray that I will get to go to one of the churches. If not, I will read my Bible and listen to a tape sermon or read a book. Not the same as being in church, though.

Possibly, but this depends on your view of baptism--Anabaptist <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rofl.gif" alt="" />

It could be worse. You could have been named after Arm and Hammer and then you would have been hammered every time you came to a Reformed site. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/cheers2.gif" alt="" />

Well, the first time I saw the name Wes, I thought he was going to be some kind of resident Arminian or something. But, when I read his posts, I was WRONG!
