Shoreline Communities are all about fun activities and events. That means all are welcome. Seriously! Wherever you’re at, spiritual or not, you are welcome. Whether you prefer outdoor adventures, educational outlets, artistic events, or a team sport; we have a Community Group for you.
Jesus modeled this kind of lifestyle all throughout the Gospels. He invited all kinds of people, from all walks of life, to do life with Him. Jesus’ invitation to ‘belong’ was a catalyst to ‘believe.’ Shoreline Community Groups open the door for healthy, real relationships.
If you love basketball and are interested in getting together and shooting some hoops, this group is for you!

One very practical way Shoreline serves those in our church and in our community is by providing basic handyman support to the elderly, single moms, and others with physical and/or financial challenges. We work both directly with individuals as well as with organizations. We take requests at our Community booth between Sunday morning services, directly through the church office, or by word of mouth.
Handyman support includes a wide range of repairs or maintenance work in or around the home. These tasks include trade skills, and tasks typically described as “side work”, “odd jobs” or “fix-up tasks”. The need might be for a specific “fix” or might involve a general “home tune-up” involving identifying and fixing a number of different problems. There are also times when this kind of skilled or unskilled labor may be needed at the Shoreline campus.
Do you enjoy serving in this way? Although specific skills such as those involving plumbing, carpentry, electrical work are wonderful, these types of skills are not a requirement. Projects might involve yard work, hauling, painting, cleaning, small landscaping, and carpentry tasks; able bodies and kind hearts are the most important consideration for many of the projects the team undertakes.
The costs of equipment and supplies are covered by the recipients, while the tools and labor are supplied by the Handyman Community.
We have projects available for you to choose from almost every week, often on Saturdays but also sometimes during the week or evenings. Community members receive an email describing upcoming opportunities to serve. In addition to our labor, we have the opportunity to encourage those we serve, praying with them when asked, and loving both those who are served as well as those we are serving alongside.
Men and women…you can use your abilities as well as your spiritual gifts of serving, administration, encouragement, or evangelism to make a real difference in people’s lives.
If this sounds like you then come and join us!

Do you enjoy Reading? Shoreline’s Women’s book club provides a great opportunity to discuss interesting books with other likeminded Shoreline women. You are welcome to join us at any time. We meet at homes in the greater Monterey area, monthly from 7:00 – 8:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month (other than in July and December). Come and enjoy fellowship with new friends, great discussions, and light snacks.
A different book is selected for each month’s meeting. Club members are encouraged to recommend books and the group leader selects the books she believes offers the best opportunity for a great discussion. Christian books, as well as secular books that provide opportunities to reflect on spiritual matters, are selected.
The book club also encourages a book exchange among members. Members are given an opportunity to describe and offer Christian non-fiction books they find particularly compelling for others in the group to borrow, keep, or pass along to others. This provides another opportunity to share good books.
Members do not need to attend every meeting. But when the monthly invitation is received, you are asked to RSVP (yes or no) so that the host can be prepared with enough chairs and refreshments.
If you would like to be included in the book club mailing list or if you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
