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.

CE-A Fall Kickoff Sept 20
"Dialogue on Faith and Racism"
Rev. Dr. Barbara Wilson
The CE-A Committee has been working diligently to bring an amazing course selection for the 2020-2021 programmatic year.
Our first series will begin on Sunday, September 20 from 10:45-11:45am. The Rev. Dr. Barbara Wilson from the Chicago Presbytery will be facilitating the first session entitled, "Dialogue on Faith and Racism." Participants will begin to consider the ways in which our Christian faith as Presbyterians informs our understanding of our Calling as the Church in relationship to systemic racism.
Zoom link can be found in the Thursday Blast or by emailing the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
News of the Amos Group
The Amos Group is a gathering of CPC folks who are dedicated to study, discussion and discernment around racial injustice, inequity, and white supremacy -- and how these are present in institutions. A core group of nine members is meeting monthly. We are reading some books, connecting with other churches to plan adult education studies, and considering where God is calling.
Our goal is to provide ways that other members of the church and community can work with us to make a difference. We encourage others in the church to attend educational events and support action initiatives. We plan to let you know about them through the bulletin and the weekly email blasts. Working together, we can have an impact. Also, if you have a concern about a specific area of injustice or inequity, please share that with us so that we can consider how, together, we might help. We seek to emulate the calling of the prophet Amos, "let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream". Amos 5:24.

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.
