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.

In worship you’ll see and hear guitar, piano, drums and organ, a message tied to a Bible reading, prayers, and other worship elements.

Got kids? We love kids.

Children are encouraged to participate in the worship service; however, we know that it can be tough for them to sit through the entire service. 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 Chelsea Barnes, a seasoned early educator.
