General Announcements

Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are due back THIS Sunday, November 24th.

Bless a family in need! Community Church wants to come along side families in our church that may be going through a difficult time so they can feel the love that God intended us to celebrate at Christmas. We have tags available in the lobby with gifts you can purchase to bless these families. Please stop by the tree, pick up a tag and fill out the back portion. Return the wrapped gift to church by Sunday, December 8th.

Please consider joining us December 8th at Ryf Road after second service for a Mending Arrows Ministry Awareness Event. You will discover ways to support foster and adoptive care in our community as well as opportunities to make a difference in the life of an individual foster or adoptive family.  

Thank you for being a part of what God is doing through our church. Your giving this year has made a difference!  As we come to the end of 2019, prayerfully consider an end of the year gift to the church. We rely on faithful giving from people like you.

Our newest Community Church worship album, Where You Are is on sale. Now through Christmas Buy One CD and get One FREE! They make great gifts and stocking stuffers. Stop by the table in the lobby and pick some up this week. Christmas BOGO -2 CD's for $10.
