We have three goals in our worship services: to inspire, teach and apply the Bible, and challenge everyone to grow as a child of God. Our Worship Team helps lead us in contemporary music mixed with some of the wonderful hymns that have inspired people for hundreds of years. The lyrics are projected so everyone can join in when comfortable, and there are prayers offered during the service as well. On the second Sunday of the month we usually take communion together. If you’re a follower of Jesus, we encourage you to join with us as we remember His sacrifice. There is a prayer team available up front at the end of the Gathering for anyone who needs prayer.
There are times to connect with each other before and after the service. Coffee and something to eat are available starting at 10:00AM, and people often arrive early to get a hot drink and talk with friends. After the service you can get to know the folks around you, pick up your kids, and then go back to your home inspired and encouraged.
We are a caring, growing, serving group of Jesus followers who would love to help you find the spiritual path God has for you. Although Sunday is important, it is more important how we live the life of love throughout the week in our families, work place, and community: we want to channel Jesus’ love to everyone we are with.
There are no adult classes meeting currently. Future classes may include:
- The Introductions Class is offered periodically for new attendees to meet Pastor Theo and his wife Gayleen, some of the Leadership Team members, and other new people. It’s a one-week class where you meet others and learn a little about our beliefs, history, and vision. We’d love to answer your questions, too! To sign up or get more information about the next class, contact us! Childcare, coffee and light refreshments are provided.
- The Starting Point Classes (4 consecutive weeks) is an introduction covering what we believe, our 140-year history as a Free Methodist church in Corralitos, what gifts God has given you to serve others, and how to become a voting member of our church family. If you are new to following Jesus, want to know more about CCC, or are interested in becoming a voting member of our church, this class is for you. To sign up or get more information about the next class, contact us! Childcare, coffee and light refreshments are provided.
- Volunteer Training: For people serving in our church family or out in the community, there are opportunities for growth through one-session training classes.
A Core Group is a supportive community where people risk being known and embrace the challenge to love and live like Jesus. Core Groups meet three times a month to discuss and apply the Bible, and to build community through sharing and praying. Once a quarter, they reach out through a service project and a social get-together.
Groups currently meet Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7PM to 8:30PM. Interested in joining one of our groups? We'd love to have you! Connect with the church office at 831-722-4363 or email email@example.com.
The Grove serves students in grades 6-12. They meet on Wednesday nights from 7–8:30PM in the youth room upstairs at the church. The group is led by Pastors Theo and Gayleen.
Your children are important to us, and they are the next generation of leaders in our community!
Sprouts is the name of our Nursery Ministry
Roots is the name of our Preschool/Kindergarten Ministry
Clubhouse is for children in 1st through 5th grade.
In Sprouts and Roots, we introduce these little ones to God and the Bible through age-specific lessons, fun animation, music, and activities. Our goal is to provide a safe and loving environment where your child will be well-cared for, allowing you some grown-up time to focus on Jesus and nurture your faith in the main Gathering.
In Clubhouse, we use a video curriculum the kids enjoy, play games, do crafts, read the Bible together and memorize key verses. The kids work together toward the goal of filling the marble jar and earning party time! The parties are a great time to get to know each other better and an opportunity for kids to invite their friends.
For more information, you can contact our Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Felicia George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The natural outcome of embracing the extravagant love of Jesus is that His love flows through us into the community around us. We desire to look around and ask "Where are the broken places where we can bring Jesus?" These are the places we are called to go. Whether it's serving a need in our own church or tackling a need in the community, we are called to serve.
The following are local projects we are currently involved in:

We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
