No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

|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.
