|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!
|CANS FOR CAREERS

Please save, rinse and crush your recyclable
aluminum beverage cans and plastic bottles, and

|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.
