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.

MANY THANKS
to the volunteers from CCMP and
Sun Street Centers
who teamed up to park
nearly 1,000 cars on the church
grounds during a Porsche event at
neighboring Rancho Canada!

We were able to donate nearly
$5,000 to the Sun Street Centers
program in Salinas. They house 54
men with addiction issues. The
program has saved many of these
homeless and borderline men's lives.
 Once recovered, many find and
reconnect with family and learn
opportunities for success. Visit their
website or Facebook page for
more information.
Giving Tree Benefit Shop

The workshop is being

appreciate your clean, saleable,
quality items only.
