Denomination: Community Church



Our Mission and Purpose is to LIVE, LOVE and LEAD Like Christ.

The key to harmony in the church is to be united in purpose. Recognizing that we come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, it is only natural for us to have a variety of ideas of how we actually serve Christ in the context of this local church. Our values - rooted in scripture - are the essential and enduring principles that unite our efforts.

Core Values

We are a Christ-centered church.

All people matter to God.

We are committed to introducing people to Jesus Christ.

Our beliefs are based on the Bible.

Prayer, worship and serving are essential to our existence.

Sunday Morning Services

In all of our services, the dress is casual, the teaching is relevant, and the fellowship is priceless. All three services have the same message.

8:00 & 9:30 AM

Traditional services with a mix of the old and new, where we sing the classic hymns many of us grew up singing as well as new songs of praise.

11:00 AM

A contemporary service with contemporary music and songs that offer people a different way to worship.

First Sunday Back To Re-Gather – September 6th.

The first thing that will be different is the time of services. We will start back with 2 services. The first service will begin at 9:00am and the second service (contemporary service) will begin at 11:00am. We will continue our online service at our website as well as transmitting the service live where you can listen and worship in your car in the parking lot by tuning to 107.7fm. There will be no Children’s Ministries until a later date.

Doors will open 15 minutes before the service start time. This means the doors will be locked and not opened until 8:45 for the 1st service and 10:45 for the 2nd service. Please remain in your car or outside until the doors open.

We are requiring everyone to wear a face mask. (we will have masks available)

Before you enter the building, your temperature will be taken. If you have a 100.4 temperature or above you will be asked to worship outside in your car or online. Please be respectful and do not be offended if this occurs.

Doors will be propped open so no handles are touched.

We ask everyone to maintain the six feet of social distancing. 

As you enter, there will be greeters. They will be smiling under their masks. But, no handshakes, fist bumps, or hugs.

Please observe the signs as you enter.

We will have hand sanitizing stations set up in the lobby.

Seating in the lobby has been temporarily removed and we are asking that there be no congregating in the lobby.

Everyone will be seated by ushers into the sanctuary. This is another thing that will be very different from what we are used to. You probably will not be sitting where you are used to sitting. (Please do not bribe or bargain with the usher seating you) Once seated, please remain in your seated area. Because of the restrictions on the number of people allowed in the sanctuary, we will seat people in the fellowship hall if needed and stream the service downstairs.

All seating will reflect social distancing. Families will be allowed to sit together.

There will be no bulletins handed out.

All bibles and hymnals have been removed from the pews. We encourage everyone to bring their own bible’s from home. All bible verses and songs will be projected on the screen.

Offering plates will not be passed during our services. We will have 3 offering boxes in the back of the sanctuary for you to place your offering in. You can do so as you enter or leave. We also encourage online giving on the church website.

On Communion Sundays, we will use pre-packaged, disposable communion. You will pick it up on your way in. There will be trash receptacles for you to dispose your empty communion cup as you leave.

At the end of the service you will be dismissed by ushers to maintain social distancing.

The only restrooms that will be available are those in the lobby.

All water fountains are not to be used.

There will be no Coffee/Fellowship Hour.

Cleaning will take place before the first service and we have allowed ample time in between services for our volunteers to clean and prepare for the second service.

If you have a fever, are not feeling well, have health issues or symptoms, we ask that you remain at home and worship with us online. And for those who will wait a bit longer to return, know that this is completely understandable. We look forward to continuing to connect and worship with you online.

Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and patience. If you have any questions, feel free to phone the church office.

Looking Forward To The 6th!
