The Vineyard Christian Fellowship sounds like a clothing line: "Contemporary and Casual." A Presbyterian church simply offers "A Caring Community." The Community Bible Church of Culver City has a series of gerunds without objects: "A Church that Serves God By Proclaiming, Accepting, Celebrating, Equipping and Sending."
