<p>This Ignacio church is part of the Community of Christ, an international denomination established in 50 countries with its headquarters in Independence, Mo. There are 30 members in Novato led by a team of lay ministers who come from all walks of life.</p> <p>One of the missions of the Novato Community of Christ is to aid new immigrants to the city and make them feel welcome. English language classes are offered Mondays and Thursdays in addition to the regular church service on Sundays. Younger kids can receive help with literacy and homework. The ESL program was started in 2001 because of the predominance of new English learners in the South Novato neighborhood known as Loma Verde.</p> <p>The church partners with an immigrant community organization, Organizaci&oacute;n Bienestar de Novato, to provide 20 pounds of groceries to 150 needy families every week.</p>
