We are a nondenominational Protestant Christian church, governed by our
members.   We value openness, independent thinking and inclusiveness in our
journey together.  We encourage individual spiritual exploration and do not
require adherence to a creed or a single view of what it means to be a Christian.   
We journey by heart, and our goal is to love God and all that God loves.
Come home to us!

ENGAGING THE
BIBLE
PRAYING & WORSHIPPING AS
ONE:
As an extension of our community
of prayer and worship, we hold a
Bible study/worship service on
Saturdays at 10 a.m. at the
Chinatown shelter in Salinas.  They
have a book in which participants
write prayers and wish to unite
these unseen/unspoken prayers
with ours at Community Church.  
Although private, and for God’s
eyes only, this book is  brought
regularly and placed on the small
table of candles lit during our
prayer time-a small sign of our
solidarity with them as we are one
with them in Christ, and in our
shared humanity.
