HŌ-ON Service Teams

In 2015, the Buddhist Church of Oakland has initiated a new structure (HŌ-ON Service Teams) to perform the regular ongoing tasks associated with programs and activities of the temple.


  • Temple members are assigned to one of eleven service teams.
  • Each service team is led by a temple member and consists of 15 to 20 members.
  • On a rotating schedule, each month is assigned to a service team.
  • Monthly responsibilities for a team includes coordinating:
    • Sunday activities (Morning coffee, greeting visitors, chairing a service, facilitating event luncheon, and other Sunday duties)
    • Garden cleanup
    • Chapel cleaning
    • Funeral call out notice
    • Other monthly church duties.
  • Additional support from other HŌ-ON Service Teams is used when needed.
