Area DiningIf you are visiting the Napa Valley on Sabbath, we invite you to refresh yourself at our monthly fellowship dinner (the third Sabbath of the month), or on other Sabbaths at guest luncheons hosted by various church members. If you need a place to eat, let our greeters at the door know, and you will be warmly welcomed to fellowship with us for a meal.
The Napa Valley is a richly beautiful destination, visited by approximately five million people each year. In addition to outdoor recreation, the Valley boasts a world-renowned culinary scene, beautiful architecture, artists and galleries, and a variety of cultural activities.
St. Helena is also within reach of the sports, theater arts, music, visual arts and special events of such cities as San Francisco, Sacramento and Santa Rosa.
