WELCOME TO SAN MARINO COMMUNITY CHURCH

We come together as God’s people, welcoming each person at different places in their walk of faith, creating a stimulating environment to explore and grow in one’s faith. Our vision is to live Christ’s Great Commandment – to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to serve and love our neighbor as ourselves.

christmas joy offering

In December, San Marino Community Church receives the annual Christmas Joy offering which dates back to the 1930s. The offering provides gifts to Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and retirement communities. SMCC’s offering supports Monte Vista Grove Homes in Pasadena, Westminster Gardens in Duarte, and Menaul School in Albuquerque, New Mexico.


Please indicate "Christmas Joy" in the memo line of your check, or give online and indicate "Christmas Joy Offering" under funds at the top of the form.


Learn More About Who We Support

Sign up for online advent workshop!

The Advent Workshop centers around preparing your home and heart for Christ's birth at Christmas by creating treasured keepsakes and creating space for family traditions. This year we will have a virtual workshop where families will pick up materials outside the church office for activities that are posted on the website week by week. Crafts, helping others, drama, an advent wreath centerpiece all will help make for a wonderful advent season at home.

Christmas GIVING TREE

Help bring Christmas joy through buying gifts for children and providing food for a family dinner. SMCC will bring support to 25 families in our community in partnership with mission partner La Casa de San Gabriel.


Two ways to help . . .


1. Visit the Giving Tree Amazon Wishlist to choose a child to support. Purchase a gift and have it shipped unwrapped by December 7, 2020, to the church office at 1750 Virginia Road San Marino 91108. Please be sure to use the wish list when you purchase to avoid duplicate gifts.


2. Provide a Christmas meal for a family, please click here to fill out form and go to the upper right corner to indicate "Christmas Giving Tree" as your targeted fund.
