SERVE

At San Marino Community Church we are each called to serve in ministry. By working together and growing into our very best lives, we are defined as followers of Christ. Besides our many adult, student and children's ministres, below are more ways to connect & serve. When everyone pitches in we all grow in faith and fellowship.  

  • WEEKLy food drive*

    Non-perishable food items are collected every Sunday to help feed low-income families in partnership with the Highland Park Food Bank in conjunction with Iglesia de Comunidad. Items may be brought to worship on Sundays or the church office during weekdays during opening hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. This is a ministry of the Board of Deacons.
