Welcome to Central Japanese-American Community Church!

We are so glad to be back in-person every Saturday for our church services! Our Sabbath School classes (kids and adults) start at 10:00am and our main church service begins at 11:00am. We have also brought back children’s church every third week of the month. We hope that you will join us as we worship and fellowship!

After the service concludes, we have bring-your-own lunch outdoors in the church parking lot, so be sure to bring a lunch and join us for fellowship as we enjoy a socially-distanced meal together!

We are also streaming our services on YouTube live for those that are not able to attend in-person. Please worship with us in whatever way you feel comfortable and we hope that you gain a blessing from our weekly church services.

About our Church Family

We are a group of Japanese Christians from throughout Los Angeles. Our church is located in the City of Pasadena.

Our church is a place filled with love, warmth and a desire to meet people of many backgrounds. The main purpose of our church is to experience the power of the living God. In addition, we welcome all those who wish to have an authentic experience with God. Our aim is not to limit ourselves to traditional worship but to celebrate in the freedom of worshipping God in prayer, message and meaningful fellowship.

We invite you to come and join us in our journey!
