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.

Shredding Truck comes to SMCC

April 24, 9:00 am - Noon, Front lawn

During the pandemic many found relief in cleaning and organizing. Last September SMCC members and friends brought many boxes of materials for shredding. Once again, to help deal with unwanted records and files, San Marino Community Church’s Buildings & Grounds Committee has invited JP Shredding of Monrovia to do on-site shredding. Members and friends may bring boxes of shred-able materials. (Contributions are welcome to offset the costs.) Shredding may also be delivered to the church office on Thursday or Friday, April 22 and 23 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm for secure storage in the business manager’s office. Contact Skip Ober Miller

Donate Now to support Union Station

Looking for the perfect gift for that special woman in your life? Ordinary things – things that we often take for granted like a hot meal can make a world of difference for those who have found themselves on the streets without a place to call home. San Marino Community Church partners with Union Station Homeless Services to provide hot meals to its residents on the second Sunday of every month. Now you can give a gift from the heart and be a part of the homeless solution! For as little as $5/meal, give the gift of hope in honor of your mother or someone equally as special! It’s the perfect alternative to “store-bought” gifts. It’s easy and personal, but more than that, this gift buys a dinner for someone who needs one.

  • Use this online form and  select “Union Station,” and make a donation of any amount. 
  • Contributions by check and Venmo (@smccpby #6741) are also welcome! (Please indicate “Union Station” on your gift.) 
  • Printable gift cards are also available at smccpby.com to give to that special someone telling them a gift of hope has been given in their honor.

On any given night...

         66,436 people are homeless in Los Angeles County

         About 4,500 people are homeless in San Gabriel Valley

         Nearly 530 people are homeless in the City of Pasadena

To learn more about preparing and serving meals at Union Station Homeless Services contact Sidney Barney at UnionStationMeals@smccpby.com. For more on USHS visit UnionStationHS.org.


Monday and Tuesday, May 3 and 4, 1:00 - 7:00 pm, Fellowship Hall

To schedule a life-saving appointment, visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code: SMCC.

Special care will be taken by trained blood drive staff to ensure social distancing and proper sanitation. Appointments are set 15 minutes apart to promote separation of donors.

Streamline the donation experience and save up to 15 minutes by visiting RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass to complete a pre-donation reading and health history questions on the day of your appointment. Contact 1-800-RED CROSS (733-2767)

Last year SMCC had 76 participants who donated 70 pints of blood – a gift of life for up to 210 individuals.
