Johann and Jennifer provide an update on mask-optional worship and other covid practices.
Welcome to Worship!
Beginning Sunday, May 30, 2021, the church leadership is updating our Covid practices for in-person events, including worship:
Masks are optional for those who are vaccinated. In accordance with state guidelines, we request that those who are not vaccinated wear a mask in the building. (Staff/greeters will not be verifying vaccination status - it will be up to the individual to observe this request.)
Children, whether in Sunday School or worship, will be asked to wear masks. Sunday School teachers will be required to wear masks while with the children.
Temperature checks, social-distancing, and contract tracing are no longer required.
Air purifiers will continue to be used in the worship space.
The congregation will be invited to sing!
The congregation will continue to come to the front to place their offering in the plate. The plate will not be passed.
We will encourage people to interact and greet each other at their level of comfort.
Individual pre-packed elements will be used for Communion.
After-worship receptions will be held in the Chapel Lobby or outside, weather permitting. Refreshments will be individually wrapped.
Worship continues both in-person and online this Sunday and beyond:
In-Person: If you are joining us in the Sanctuary, please review our Covid guidelines and information below prior to Sunday morning.
At Home: If you aren't able to come to church, or aren't yet comfortable doing so, know that the online option will always be available. The live broadcast begins with a prelude and live chat at 10:20am, and there are three different ways to watch:
WHAT TO EXPECT
Worship is the heart of Community Church! It is an experience of the living God, through relevant messages that proclaim the Gospel, and is a time for connecting with God and others. 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 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! Enhanced by projected images and lyrics, music is led by a variety of instruments with contemporary-style worship leaders guiding us in singing God’s praise.
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.
Sunday School takes place at the same time as Worship in the Chapel and childcare for infants and toddlers is available. Children of any age are also welcome to stay with you in worship.
All are welcome, whether in-person or online at 10:30am!
For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.
While Sunday worship takes place at 10:30am each week, we know that there are times you can't make it to the live broadcast - and we are so glad that you are choosing to participate in worship now! Below is the most recent Sunday worship (published here on Monday mornings), and it's available to you anytime you'd like to worship.
We don't know who watches worship unless you tell us, so please reach out! You can let us know by emailing or commenting in the chat on Facebook or YouTube. This helps us create a sense of community and connectedness with each other, even though we aren't in the same space as we worship.
We'd also love to be in prayer with you and for you. If you have a prayer request or would like to be in touch with one of our pastors, please contact us - we would love to hear from you so that we can support you on your faith journey. Email us at Church@CommunityChurch.org.

HOLY WEEK & EASTER WORSHIP
LENT SERMON SERIES
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!
