Children Are Important to Us!

Children of all ages are welcome and important at Community Church.  Children are welcome in worship and at events and we are working hard to be ever more inter-generational.  In addition to sitting with care givers in worship, we have space (when we are worshiping inside) dedicated for young children in the sanctuary and out in the narthex where the service can still be seen and heard.  Children 3rd grade and younger are also invited to go to a age appropriate sharing and discovery time part way through the service.  This summer children are reading books about different kinds of families and in the Fall we will begin a really exciting curriculum called "A Joyful Path".  Strollers are welcome (please use the front entrance) in the sanctuary, and expectant mother/young children parking is located in the front of the building, if that might help.  

Worship Outdoors All Summer & Blessing of the Animals 


All summer we worship in a pavilion overlooking a beautiful ravine. On August 26th (weather permitting) we will have our third annual blessing of the animals service where all are invited to bring their beloved pets for a blessing.  

CELEBRATING 25 YEARS of LOVING PEOPLE for WHO THEY ARE!

On September 9th at 10am, we will be worshiping and then eating and drinking in celebration of 25 years of being open and affirming of individuals regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, economic class, ability, age, or anything else that seeks to divide us in our society.  NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE ON LIVE'S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME AND WANTED HERE!!!  Come celebrate with us!  We want community members, supporters, current and former members and ministers, EVERYONE, to come join us for the party!!! 

Sunday Morning Church not your thing?  That's o.k...

A lot of times, folks think of Church as Sunday morning worship.  And that's fine.  But that is not the only way to be a member of a faith community. Community Church invites all people in our community to engage with us through social justice, volunteering, social events, spiritual retreats,

workshops on different spiritual disciplines, movie nights, family events, etc...  We love art, music, eating and drinking together, and most of all, supporting and caring for one another.  It doesn't matter if you see your faith as "traditional" or if you are spiritual but not religious, or even if you don't think of yourself as spiritual or religious, but you are looking for a welcoming and inclusive community centered in social justice, love, inclusion and compassion.  All are welcome at Community Church and we mean it.  Rev. Jason
