Our Unique Story

Girls at the Christmas Pageant

G.K. Chesterton said, “Angels can fly because they take life lightly.”

Our approach to church aligns with Chesterton’s words, and we actively pursue ways to lighten things up in our often overwhelming world. Which is why we tell our story with a ukulele, a song, and a preacher whose gifts are in areas other than music…

We Deliver is a state of mind and a promise: to provide worship, spiritual growth opportunities, and service everywhere. Anyone & everyone can participate in the life of the Community Church because every weekly worship service is available online.

We also invite you to our Book Clubs, Bible Studies, Meditation, and other spiritual growth programs, locally and via Zoom.

A Different Kind of Mission Statement

Mission statements are like philosophy. They tell you what people think. Well-crafted words that reflect thoughts – but not necessarily actions. At the Community Church, we have a different approach to mission statements. We don’t do them. If you want to know what we are thinking, check out what we are doing.
