Candlelight Vespers Service and Dinner 12/11/16 at 4:30 PM

Christmas Candlelight Vespers is a time for Community Church members and friends to gather and celebrate the coming of Christ.  Our Adult, Children’s and Bell Choirs under the direction of Minister of Music, Frank Crosio, will offer wonderful music of the season in the beauty of our sanctuary by candlelight as the story of Christ's coming and birth are retold in scripture and song. 

All are invited to join in singing beloved Christmas Carols, and then to share food and fellowship together at a dinner in Gardner Hall sponsored by the Board of Membership Life & Development.  Come, have your hearts warmed and spirits cheered through participation in this time-honored Community Church tradition.

2016 Mission Trip

Inspirational Tree at All Saints Camp, Bahamas

Inspirational Tree at All Saints Camp, Bahamas

Thank you to everyone from our church family for supporting our mission trip! We wanted to check in to let you all know that our first two days at the All Saints Camp in the Bahamas have been a blessed and work-filled experience.  

In addition to interacting with the residents of the camp community, we are working on fencing, builing railings to increase accessibility, and doing latice work. Our internet capabilities are limited, but we'll try to post updates and photos when we can!

MISSION TRIP DAY 3!

MISSION TRIP DAY 3!

We had a great Wednesday on our mission site! In addition to continuing our carpentry and fencing projects, we also continue to make connections with the inspiring residents at All Saints Camp.   We are getting much better at Dominos (it was a slow start!) and we have shared in times of singing, story-telling and laughter.  Thank you all for the continued prayers and love!

Mission Trip: Thursday     Today was our last full day of work at All Saints Camp. One group completed building the deck they have been working on. Another finished transferring their giant mound of landscaping dirt and sand. A third finished the wood frame for their concrete project and a fourth completed another 30 feet or so of accessibility railing. And our fencing crew was as productive as ever in fencing around the buildings.  All of the groups helped to lead BINGO for the camp residents, who absolutely loved it.
