Community Church


We are vibrant and committed spiritual community who are called to bring the teachings of Christ to our local community in a positive, caring way that fosters inclusion and progressive thinking. We believe the essence and purpose of a local community church is to serve the greater community and we actively pursue this goal every day.

We gather for worship and Christian education every Sunday morning, with licensed infant and childcare provided. Our service time is centered in ancient traditions with modern forms and a relevant contemporary message. Come join us!
