Shoreline Church

Shoreline is a unique expression of what God is doing in and through our particular community. Our goal is not to be exactly like other churches or movements, but we are informed by the work and ministry of other congregations. We are highly focused on reaching our community, the greater Monterey area, for Jesus.

Each year Shoreline hosts in December a HOPE Christimas Party to serve approximately 350 county-wide mothers and children living in shelters and transitional housing for a special evening of food, gifts and entertainment that celebrates their lives and the Christmas season.
