Community Outreach

Shoreline Church is committed to reaching the lost and needy of our community by organizing various ongoing community projects and events. We participate in Monterey County’s Love Our Central Coast and have many ongoing ministries and seasonal events. We always welcome new volunteers.

During this time of Covid-19 we are doing things a little differently, so be sure to check out what’s new with each project below.

Food Pantry/Clothes Closet

Shoreline Church Food Pantry is a Monterey County Food Bank Pantry.
Open Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30-2:30 p.m.

Food PantryThe Shoreline Church Food Pantry is one of the few Food Pantries in our area which is highly utilized by individuals throughout Monterey County.  Each year the Food Pantry at Shoreline serves approximately 2,130 households, comprised of 6,141 men, women and children.  The Food Pantry has three basic elements providing prayer, food and clothing for our clients.

The Food Pantry operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30p to 2:30p.  It is run by a volunteer staff that is dedicated to the call of serving our Lord. Besides providing food and clothing, prayer is essential and is offered up in an organic way as not to offend or be forceful.  We have established Prayer Warriors who are dedicated to praying with those who request prayer.  The Food Pantry is a very fulfilling ministry and we are always looking for volunteers with gifts that align themselves with this ministry.   

Feeding the Homeless

Once a month, we meet at 9:30 am to carpool to Dorothy’s Kitchen in Salinas to chop and prepare food, set up tables, make sandwiches and whatever else needs to be done. We serve lunch to more than 150 people. While we are there we have opportunity to interact and encourage those who have come for a meal. If you would like to get involved, please contact Shawnell Thompson at

I-Help for Women

Women's Shelter Visits

On the 1st Sunday of the month, we encourage and empower women in who are currently living in transitional housing programs. Join us as we share Christ’s love in a simple way. We give presentations on relevant life skills, engage in a time of discussion, and share in a time of fellowship and fun. You must get directions to the shelter as it is protected. Email:
