Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote the exercise of faith and practice of religion in Culver City, California and adjacent areas...

To cultivate a friendly cooperative and synergistic relationship between the city's government and religious communities. To build partnerships among the religious congregations to develop affective ministries for Culver City residents and to work together for the benefit of the total community without compromising doctrinal values or beliefs.

Following some incidents of gang related violence at the high school in 1998, the City Council of Culver City, at the suggestion of Council member Al Vera and others thought it would be a good idea if the spiritual leaders of the community were summoned together to discuss ways that these problems could be addressed. Specifically, the City wanted to know if the houses of worship might be able to help by providing after school care - safe spaces where children could go after school until their parents returned home from work. Several programs were started. In addition, our CC hosts events on various discussion topics from the point of view of their various faiths traditions for example charity, fasting, conversion, etc. We also collaborate with other organizations who are producing events which we also support, for example: Peace Sundays and a Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Celebration.

We dream of many faiths enriching each other by reinforcing the existing spiritual links between our diverse religious traditions and fostering new ones by recognizing our mutual concerns and celebrating our common values.
