Social distanced seating
Welcome to Worship!
Worship continues both in-person and online this Sunday and beyond:
In-Person: If you are joining us in the Sanctuary, please review our safety guidelines and information below prior to Sunday morning. We are able to accommodate 125 worshipers in our Sanctuary, properly spaced per social distancing guidelines.
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 the safety of our attendees and staff attendees, church leaders have developed the following guidelines:
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.
Worship takes place in the Sanctuary. There is no air-conditioning in this space, so please dress comfortably! When the weather allows, windows may be open. When windows aren't open, air purifiers are used to cycle and purify the air in the space.
Seats are marked so that groups sit at least 6 feet apart.
Restrooms are available.
Children are welcome and may remain with their parents throughout Worship or go to Sunday School, where social distancing, masks, and frequent sanitizing is required.
Adjustments to Worship include:
No contact during the Greeting (no handshakes, hugs, or close talking);
No congregational singing at this time. All singing will be led by worship leaders;
No passing of an offering plate; individuals bring their offering to the front and place it in the offering plate or give electronically;
Communion is served in individually packaged portions;
Worshipers asked to wear their masks at all times;
Refreshments after Worship are served in individually packed portions.
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!
