If you’re looking for
more hope, faith and love,
you’ll fit right in here.
A lot of times these days, church is seen as something that’s exclusive, closed-minded, and judgmental. But at Community Presbyterian Church, we come together each week as a gathering of people that aren’t all alike, but that are all open to each other, rooted in tradition, but not stuck in it.
We come together to talk and listen, learn and teach, laugh and cry, sing and pray, and along the way, figure out how we can love others, love God, follow Jesus, and not only find hope for ourselves, but be hope in the world, too.
If that’s the kind of church you’re looking for, you’ll fit right in here.
Community —it's in our name.
At Community Presbyterian Church, community is part of our name because we’ve seen how important it is and what a difference a sense of connection and real belonging makes in our lives. And we want everyone who walks in our doors to find that too, whatever your gender, age, sexual identity, religious background or lack thereof, no matter what the color of your skin, where you come from, or the amount of money in your bank account.
From our communal Sunday morning gatherings to smaller groups and events focused on your specific interests, there are plenty of ways to connect here. And if you aren’t sure where to start, get in touch with one of our staff—we’d love to help you.
Church doesn't just happen inside our building.
To us, church isn’t just about caring for those within our walls — it’s about caring for those outside of them, too. Beliefs matters a lot less to us than who we’re being in the world and what we’re doing. Jesus told us to love our neighbors — all our neighbors. So this means that around here, we talk about what’s going on in the world, and look for real, practical ways we can be loving neighbors, to those nearby and those far away. We strive to be a part of changing things for the better. Whether you’re interested in helping out at the church, getting involved in a local community effort or participating in a global mission project, we hope you’ll join us, in whatever way you can.
Whether you’re interested in helping out at the church, getting involved in a project in our local community or one in another country, we hope you’ll join us, in whatever way you can.
There's a lot going on around here.
From Sunday School to service projects, no matter what your age or interests, we have a full calendar of events to choose from. Here’s what’s happening this month.
New Adult Ed:
Increase Your Impact
Sun Jan 12 & Feb 9
Leader: Rebecca Wear Robinson
Competition for changing attitudes and behaviors is intense. The average attention span is only 3 seconds. Most of us are pulled in so many directions that the hamster wheel of living is locked into a permanent spin cycle. Even when we want to do good - in our church, in our community, in the world - the obstacles are overwhelming. Even the best ideas and most pressing problems can’t keep people engaged, much less change individuals and our society for the better.
There is another way.
Using techniques pulled from marketing and social psychology, we will learn how to create positive, sustainable and cost-effective change out of the programs and organizations that you value.
Bring a notebook and pen.

Julian Chin uses the instrumentation and idioms of the jazz piano trio while focusing on contemporary repertoire. Fans of modern popular song will find new ways of hearing their favorites, while devotees of classic jazz will enjoy hearing improvisations on fresh melodies that dont usually find their way into jazz clubs. Through this music, the trio communicates a multitude of narratives, personal, cultural, and national, using our shared language of song.

Attending a church for the first time can be a little intimidating, but we’d like to make the experience as relaxed as possible. If you have questions about what a typical service is like, what we believe, what to wear, where to park, that sort of thing, you will find a lot of answers here. And if you have any other questions, we’d also love to talk with you via phone, email or in person.
