Cover Story

By Sandy Brundage Almanac Staff Writer

O

ne hundred and forty years ago, the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church first took shape in a small building on Santa Cruz Avenue. Now, MPPC is looking for a new home — both spiritually and physically. Make that homes, plural. You probably either know someone or someone who knows someone who attends MPPC: The church, a cornerstone of the city’s community, has about 3,400 members and a couple thousand more who attend weekly services at a campus in Menlo Park, Mountain View or San Mateo. Now the church wants to add five more Bay Area campuses, an expansion that involves changing parent organizations, or denominations. Some members are questioning whether it’s not just a question of property rights, but also theological conflicts over gay clergy and samesex marriage that are influencing the switch. On March 2 the entire congregation will vote on whether to leave the denomination the church has belonged to since 1987 — Presbyterian Church (USA) — for ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, a much smaller, newer organization launched in 2012. According to the church’s leadership, it comes down to four factors: identity, in terms of adherence to Scripture; and mission as well as governance, which relate to the process of growth in local communities. The fourth factor, property, involves who owns church real estate. Currently, that belongs to PCUSA. But in ECO, the churches hold the titles. MPPC Communications Director Nicole Laubscher said ECO’s 110 churches are organized into nine presbyteries by both geography and similarity, such as size, as opposed to geography alone as done by the Presbyterian Church (USA). “For us it’s about the pace of change,” she said.

Big changes ahead Menlo Park Presbyterian Church leadership wants to add five campuses, change its denomination more flexibility, whereas PCUSA is designed for small churches in a single location. “It creates tremendous barriers.” When MPPC first sought to expand outside Menlo Park, she said, “It was really hard. At the time, we didn’t know if we would just get a no. Instead of being supported, encouraged and helped, it was another barrier to hurdle. ... it’s just not the right framework to support a larger, multi-site church.” In PCUSA, the presbytery, or regional governing body, is

responsible for planning and placing new churches. Tom Conrad, chair of the PCUSA team selected to deal with the proposed departure of the Menlo Park church, agreed the concept of opening multiple sites doesn’t fit well with that organization’s system; as a result, there are “precious few” multi-site churches. But there are also practical reasons for MPPC to stay, he said. Leaving would disrupt connections with other PCUSA churches. The denomina-

tion also serves as a resource for finding pastors, promotes world-wide disaster relief and missionary programs, and provides pensions as well as church insurance. Freedom comes at a price: $8.89 million, according to MPPC, a figure arrived at after negotiations with PCUSA. Member churches hold property in trust for PCUSA, meaning the parent organization actually owns the real estate at 950 Santa Cruz Ave., for instance. This creates reluc-

tance on the part of congregations to invest in additional property, according to MPPC, and also results in high exit fees to transfer ownership of the real estate upon leaving the denomination. The split is playing out across the nation. According to PCUSA’s statistics, it lost more than 102,000 members and 196 congregations left or were dissolved in 2012, compared with only 21 congregations the year before. That was the denomination’s largest loss in almost 50 years. In what may not be a coincidence, in 2011 the majority of presbyteries in PCUSA voted to allow the ordination of openly gay clergy, overturning a 33-year-old ban, and left it up to churches to decide whether to implement the change. Recognizing or performing same-sex marriages is also up for debate, although the denomination currently defines marriage as between a man and a woman, as does ECO. ECO’s stance on gay clergy is harder to parse out. The See page 19

Menlo Park Presbyterian Church has grown to about 3,400 members, with a couple thousand more attending weekly services at one of its three campuses.

Big changes ahead continued from page 17

organization did not respond to the Almanac’s questions. Its website presents the following statement as one of its essential tenets: “maintain chastity in thought and deed, being faithful within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman as established by God at the creation or embracing a celibate life as established by Jesus in the new covenant.” Reading between the lines suggests members are expected to be celibate unless they are married heterosexual couples. Some former and current

members of MPPC said they think the theological differences are influencing the church’s desire to change organizations. Debra Holvick, who stopped attending several years ago, got re-involved to be able to participate in the upcoming vote. “This was the church I was baptized in, I went to Sunday school there, I was married there, my father’s memorial was held there, my mother remarried there and my children were raised there,” she told the Almanac. “That church has been a huge part of my life, so

The

I felt responsible for it and I don’t want them to take it in an unchristian-like direction and say this is part of who I am.” Ms. Holvick said taking a stance against gay clergy and same-sex marriage may not be a major motivation for changing denominations, but it does come with the package. “My goal is just to make people aware of what they stand for and to try and tell people it is important,” she said. “I don’t think it should be swept under the rug. If someone really believes gays are unnatural and shouldn’t be allowed to be married and shouldn’t be allowed to preach the word of God or be an elder, then take responsibility for that vote.” MPPC estimates that people

under the age of 35 make up about 40 percent of its weekly attendance, which is a number it wants to increase. The issue of how to attract a younger demographic runs up against the move to retain a conservative approach towards gay congregants, according to another member who has attended MPPC for 21 years and asked to remain anonymous. While she agreed PCUSA could be more streamlined, the move to change denominations picked up momentum following the 2011 policy change towards gay clergy, according to her observations. She questioned whether MPPC truly welcomes gay and lesbian members while simultaneously limiting how they can be involved. Although the local church says the move is not about the ordination of gay clergy and instead is about their desire to expand, she said, “it sends a terrible message” to youth in the community about the church’s openness to gay and lesbian people. She suggested that $9 million would be better spent funding scholarships and buying food for those in need in the local community, than on changing denominations. Ms. Laubscher, the church’s communications director, said the theological conflicts are nothing new. “Disagreements within PCUSA and within MPPC on this will exist either way — and we want to be the kind of place where people who disagree can be in community together.” That is one reason why the

argument over gay clergy would not be driving a change of organization, she said. “Human sexuality is a vitally important facet of life, and conversations about it will and should continue long after the vote, but it is not related to the issue of MPPCís denominational affiliation,” Ms. Laubscher said, noting that as a church, the congregation holds a wide range of views on many issues and that diversity is valued. “We can only stay on mission by focusing on what holds us together, which is our faith in God. And we can only make the right decision for our church’s affiliation by staying focused on our core reason for change, which is to best fulfill our mission. We hope that the decision before our congregation doesn’t become a vehicle for, or referendum on, political or cultural issues.” That mission, she said, is to reach the Bay Area for Jesus. “We have the ways God has blessed us on the one hand. And then we have the great need of our community, and we feel this great desire to close the gap.” A

Church says growth, property issues are driving the decision, while some members question influence of theological conflict over gay clergy and same-sex marriage.

“The Almanac has been a trusted part of my Real Estate marketing strategy.�

“Listings have come from advertising here, but more importantly, I have found my niche and my target audience.�

– Ed Kahl

–Monique Lombardelli

“It is an excellent way to get information out to people in my market sphere because it is an excellent newspaper. It carries area news and features that people in Woodside, Portola Valley and Atherton want to know about. When I list exceptional homes and estates, I want to get the word, and the pictures, out. The Almanac is a great way to do that.�

“Through your publication more people have come forth professing their love of modernism. We have created a great network of enthusiasts and reached a whole new audience of like-minded individuals. Thank you so much for allowing our off mid mod ads! You have allowed us to express ourselves and create a movement!�

997 All Other Legals NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: HERMAN CHRISTENSEN, JR. Case No.: 124145 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of HERMAN CHRISTENSEN, JR. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: ISOBEL S. CHRISTENSEN, RAYMOND P. CHRISTENSEN, AND GAVIN H. CHRISTENSEN in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN MATEO. The Petition for Probate requests that: ISOBEL S. CHRISTENSEN, RAYMOND P. CHRISTENSEN, AND GAVIN H. CHRISTENSEN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on March 7, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 28, of the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request

for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Judith V. Gordon 525 University Avenue, Suite 1325 Palo Alto, CA 94301 (650)614-3800 (ALM Feb. 12, 19, 26, 2014)

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: SUZANNE D. DAHLING Case No.: 124133 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of SUZANNE D. DAHLING. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: RANDALL L. DAHLING in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN MATEO. The Petition for Probate requests that: RANDALL L. DAHLING be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on March 7, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in

Dept.: 28, of the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Roger P. Kokores, Esq. 2600 El Camino Real, #501 Palo Alto, CA 94306 (650)857-1818 (ALM Feb. 12, 19, 26, 2014)
