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.

Each class is stand alone; so join for one or all of the sessions.

Some things must change as we live and worship in the months of a global pandemic. One of them is our deliberate choice to refrain from communal singing when we are gathered in the sanctuary.
We now have one voice, a cantor, who sings the hymns on behalf of all. The rest of us present in the sanctuary, stand and sing them only in our hearts.

ALL INVITED TO JOIN THE AMOS GROUP
The Amos Group is a gathering of CPC folks who are dedicated to study, discussion and discernment around racism, white supremacy and institutionalized racism. In the beginning stages of forming, we welcome all!
We are reading some books, connecting with other churches to share adult ed studies, and considering where God is calling.
Join as 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.
Contact Gregg Morton for more information.
Next meeting: August 12, 7:30 pm

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.
