Since 1963, Community Church has been a welcoming, democratic, independent
Christian community.  Now
both Independent and United Church of Christ, our mission
is still to welcome independent-minded people of all ages, build a diverse Christian
community, and nurture one another to love God, neighbor and self.
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
Come home to us!

It's not your typical Bible Study.
Engaging the Bible with Rev Paul
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.
