The Coffee Club

The Coffee Club is a group of mostly men but a few women from town who gather in our basement fellowship hall every morning, 8-10 o’clock. Coffee costs $1 a cup, half of which goes to the church.

On the agenda are current events, local & national politics, and op-ed conversation.

Community Dinners

Community Dinners take place on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, October-May. Dinner is at 6 PM and followed by a program at 7 PM. If you come, you should bring your own flatware and plate and a prepared dish to share.

Friendship with Gould Farm

This congregation has always had an informal relationship with Gould Farm. Over a century old, Gould Farm is a working farm (and the largest employer and landowner in town) that is also a residential treatment facility for adults with major mental illness. There are over 100 members of that community – staff, volunteers, and guests (which designates those receiving treatment). And every week we have several members of that community in worship.

For so many reasons, Gould Farm is a blessing to this congregation. It keeps us young, flexible, and welcoming. Many of our musicians and most dedicated members found themselves in Monterey because of Gould Farm. Most of all, Gould Farm is a model of true community at work. A concept that’s easy to romanticize, community is actually one of the greatest challenges of the gospel.

To accept people as they are, to communicate honestly, and to listen with care: these are all aspects of “being church.”  We’re blessed to be able to count among us so many people who live this out every day.
