finding a church in four easy steps…

Most churches make you feel like you have to act and think a certain way in order to fit in: Behave, Believe, and then, maybe, you can Belong.
At Community, we want you to feel like you belong, period. Because God’s Good News of salvation is for all people, everywhere. When you’re at Community, you’re part of a community of people just like you – people who need to know they are loved and forgiven.
Once you’re here, once you’re seeing and hearing and receiving the amazing gifts that God brings through the music, the message and the Sacraments, we hope you’ll start to see and believe that God’s promises really are true – and totally free!
So you come as you are… but you won’t stay that way! Once you believe, the way you see things begins to change – now it’s not about what you have to do; it’s what you get to do.
But finding a church home is a big deal.
So wherever you are in the process, here are some steps for you to consider:

Step 1

Come to Worship
Join us for worship any time. Come early, come often. We have worship services on Wednesdays at 7:00pm
Sundays at 8:30 & 11:00am
Most weeks, all three services are the same, but they’re always 100% pure Christ-centered, Community-style worship. And if you didn’t like worship this week, come back next week (because it’s likely to be totally different!).

As you get more comfortable, it’s natural to want to go deeper and get more invested: at Community, you come as you are… but you don’t stay that way. So maybe it’s time for Step Two…

Step 2

Make a Commitment
Once you’ve figured out that this is where God wants you to be, it’s time to go a little deeper. We call it taking Ownership.
It’s time for you to go through our information class, The Core. It’s Community 101, for everyone who just wants to know more about us – and for those who are ready to join this Community family and become member-owners!

That’s what we call “Being Church.” If you would like more information about becoming a part of Community or on going through the info class, just contact the church office.

Step 3

Make a Difference
Our goal once you’ve joined is to get you plugged in and start building relationships.
It makes a huge difference knowing someone is thinking of you, praying for you and willing to be there for you when you need them.
By the same token, you have the opportunity to be there for someone else! To reach out and hold each other up with prayer and love. To engage your faith by serving in worship, joining or starting a ministry, or by visiting and caring for those in need – and those are just a few of the many ways you can make a difference.

Any Time

Get Baptized
Have you or your children been baptized? Do you know why it matters?

Baptism is the actual forgiveness of sins through the combination of ordinary water and God’s Word, by which God brings us from death into life, adopting us as members of His eternal family.

But if you’ve already been baptized, as long as it was with water and in the name of the triune God, you don’t need to be baptized again. Nobody needs to be baptized “Lutheran”: you just need to be baptized.

If you or a member of your household would like to be baptized, please contact the church office to set it up.
