Been there, Harv -- it's a trip.  If you're ever in SF, it's on 
Divisidero near Fell or Oak.  Classic storefront church with 
services Sunday, as well as Wednesday night as I recall.  It's 
serious, but appropriately doesn't take itself too "seriously" -- 
friendly, accessible place for drop-ins.  Don't know where the 
minister got ordained, but he's for real.  I believe he 
occasionally sits in on drums (not sure he plays sax, although 
there's no shortage of young tenor players in the congregation).
