Approximately 18,000 baptized people form our 72 congregations. We are comprised of six deaneries (a geographical group of congregations): the Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Southern Alameda deaneries cover their respective counties; the Peninsula deanery consists of all of San Mateo County and a small portion of Santa Clara County.
