Every ministry of Salinas Valley Community Church is committed to helping people grow into a life of “Loving with Abandon.” This means that SVCC’s Women’s Ministry lives out this mission as we help women: Love Jesus with abandon, love each other with abandon and love Salinas with abandon. We believe these three goals capture the heart of God for every woman.
With that in mind, here is what is coming:
IF:Monterey is a gathering of women in Monterey County to watch the live stream of IF:Gathering – a global Women’s Conference with music worship and Biblical teaching from Jennie Allen, Beth Moore, Jo Saxon, and many more! The focus will be completely and entirely on the person of Jesus. Turn off all the noise, get into the Word, experience powerful teaching, dive into deep conversations, worship Jesus, and hear stories that will compel you to take your next steps toward life and peace. Sign-up online at www.shoreline.church/women for this FREE event. Lunch by Lalla Grille available on Saturday for $14 by pre-registering.
Friday, February 7th, 6 pm - 9 pm and Saturday, February 8th, 9 am - 4 pm | Parkside Room

MOPS & MOMSnext
Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. At Salinas Valley MOPS we strive to be genuine and real. We want every mom to feel welcome and comfortable as they are. It is our hope that your experience at MOPS will be one of positive support, encouragement and personal growth. Salinas Valley MOPS meets the second and fourth Monday of each month from 9:30-11:30 am. For more information contact Amanda Massingale at or Kandice Gamotan at
