San Marino Community Church invites its members and friends to support the ministries of the congregation as an act of faith and Christian discipleship. From education and fellowship, to service, mission, and caregiving, to worship and music, it all depends on substantial giving from the congregation. With each one giving sacrificially (increasing where possible) contributions are multiplied and allow Christ’s work through SMCC to flourish and grow.

for classic & Traditional Worship Services

"Flowers are God's way of smiling..." - Proverb

We invite our congregation to donate flowers which will adorn the Sanctuary chancel on Sunday mornings. 

Many people find it comforting to donate on a particular Sunday in memory of a loved one, celebration of an anniversary, or other special occasion. The cost is $150.  Flowers are delivered to homebound and ill members later in the week.  Orders should be made at least one week in advance through the church office: 626/282-4181.  Contact Sharon Grosshans or fill out Flower Fund Form

History & Purpose

The Foundation of SMCC, established in 1958, creates current and future giving opportunities for members of the Church who give back, in response to God's blessings. The Foundation is an active steward of the Church's endowment, a collection of pooled and individual funds which donors have asked the Foundation to hold and invest in perpetuity. Disbursements from the endowment are distributed on an annual basis and support every aspect of the Church's ministries: children, student and adult ministries; worship and music ministries; mission grants; and care of the sanctuary, manse and physical facility. The Cornerstone Society recognizes those who have included the Foundation or San Marino Church in their estate plans. The Foundation of SMCC's Federal EIN # is 20-8917863.
