We are an inclusive church community in Short Hills, where everyone who wishes to follow Jesus is welcome, where worship is a multimedia experience of Bible-based messages and engaging music, where our children’s ministry is fun and faith-building … and where we’re excited to welcome you!
Rise...Above Trouble to Glory!
Jesus prepared a path for us to rise from what is ordinary - and to arrive at what is glorious! We know this path as "Lent," a Journey of spiritual regeneration that starts from the ashes of Ash Wednesday and that culminates in life rising forever on Easter Sunday!
This Lent, our sermon series invites you to let God's Word lift your spirit from whatever may weigh on you, so that you may rise to living daily in the joy of Easter!
You're invited to Worship on Sundays at 10:30am online or in-person!

COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR IN-PERSON EVENTS
Church leaders have implemented best-practices for in-person gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic. These practices include:
Those with symptoms of illness (fevers, aches, cough, sneezing) and underlying health conditions that put them at risk are asked to stay home.
Masks are required at all times.
Attendees are asked to observe social-distancing guidelines while onsite.
Temperature checks are performed of all staff and attendees, and hand-sanitizing stations are positioned throughout the building.
Available seats in the Sanctuary are marked, and groups that arrive together may sit together.
The first two rows are roped off to provide at least 30 feet of space between worshipers and worship leaders, who do not wear masks while leading worship.
Air purifiers are stationed around the Sanctuary. They completely turn over the air in 20 minutes with 99.9% purification.
Children in Sunday School are asked to abide by the same guidelines, and our Children's ministry staff (who are temperature-checked and sanitize frequently) are tasked with ensuring the guidelines are followed.
We've made some adjustments to Worship, as well, including no congregational singing and no contact during the greeting. Learn more about the changes to Worship by clicking here.

Worship at Community Church
Join us for worship on Sundays at 10:30am!
We celebrate in blended style - that means our band plays everything from your favorite old hymns to contemporary Christian music, and all kinds of good stuff in between!
Childcare takes place at the same time as Worship in our nursery. Children of any age are also welcome to stay with you in worship.
Every service includes a sermon that is firmly based in scripture and rooted in right now. When we pray for all the people of God, we are invited to call out specific names aloud.
We share communion on the first Sunday of the month and, regardless of your background, we invite all followers of Jesus to participate.
Your gifts are received with gratitude during Worship. We dismiss with a blessing, and gather in Fellowship Hall for coffee and refreshments.
What to wear? We don't care! Whatever makes you comfortable is ok with us. Some people dress up, some wear jeans, and most land somewhere in the middle.
