|We are a "dual track" church, both Independent and United Church of Christ.
Openness, independent thinking and inclusivity are critical for 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 or to follow
Christ. We journey by heart, and our goal is to love God and all that God loves.
|Come home to us!
Please save, rinse and crush your recyclable aluminum beverage
cans and plastic bottles (NO GLASS), and bring them to the
receptacles at church. (Only clean beverage containers, please, no
food cans.) The proceeds raised go toward bus passes and other
needs of the men in the I-HELP program.
|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.
