At Community, our services are a joyful encounter with our great God and Savior. We come each Sunday to be refreshed by the proclamation of the Gospel, and would love to have you experience this with us. Read below to learn more about what you can expect when you join us!
Our worship services are a divine dialogue—that is, when we come together on Sundays for worship it is to have a conversation with God. This understanding informs what we do in our services and the way we do it. God is the initiator in this conversation: He speaks to us in the call to worship, the reading of the law, the declaration of pardon, the preaching of His Word, the administration of sacraments (Lord’s Supper and baptism), and the benediction. Primarily we come to hear from Him. Our part in this divine dialogue is always responsive in nature: we respond to God in our prayers, confession of sin, giving of our offerings, and singing.
Jesus instructed his followers, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 19:14). Therefore we believe that children belong in the service, and we encourage families to worship together as much as possible. If needed, we happily provide a staffed nursery during both AM and PM services.
We offer Sunday School for all ages. After the morning service, we have a time of refreshments and fellowship until 11:30, with Sunday School following until 12:15. Our teen and adult class is generally topic-based, and is a more informal time allowing for questions and participation.
