What to Expect
Please know you’re always welcome. We desire to be a loving and hospitable community. Dress however you like; we’re pretty casual – jeans, business casual, shorts, and sandals. Come.
We are located at 11269 Washington Blvd. in Culver City at the corner of Washington Blvd and Globe Ave. We have a free parking lot off the alleyway behind the church. If that is full, there are usually spots on Globe Ave or Washington Blvd. where you can park for free on Sunday mornings. Why not carpool, bike or take the bus to church? Culver City Buses numbers 1 and 6 drop off is just 1 block away.
When You Arrive
We invite you to enter through any door. Many people choose to enter through the front doors on Washington Blvd. that lead right into the worship space. There are also accessible doors behind the church. This will lead you through the social hall to get to the sanctuary on the left.
You might be unsure about finding a church. Many of us were. You may have grown up in the church and miss the stories and warmth. We did. You may not know what you're looking for or even what all the hype is about. We invite you to come and see. This just may be a place and a people that fit your questions, your explorations, and your deep connection with something greater than yourself. It is for us. We have found belonging here. Maybe you will, too.
Culver City Presbyterian Church welcomes all to worship with us. We believe that God loves all people, and this belief has helped us become a home to people of all races, all nationalities, the LGBTQIA+ community, and the recovery community. Our philosophy is that a loving God puts up no artificial barrier to grace, and we hope you will agree and find your church home with us.
Rev. Dr. Frances Wattman Rosenau

Quality childcare is available for children up to 5 years of age during the worship service from 10:30-11:30.
Childcare is lovingly provided by Jenny White, a seasoned early educator.
