CSM - High School (Grades 8th - 12th)
Join Pastor Tommy in the worship center for the Life in Babylon - The LGBTQ series.

Life in Babylon - The LGBTQ Conversation
Babylon is the name of an ancient nation. Biblically speaking, it’s also a lens through which we understand how we interact with the world around us. We are exiles - this place is not our home. But we live here. How are we supposed to interact with the world around us? How are we supposed to view the LGBTQ conversation through our faith in Jesus? More importantly, how are we to love and care for our LGBTQ neighbors? This class will tackle the polarizing, complex topic that is the LGBTQ conversation.

Marriage: Built to Last

Throughout this series, you'll experience real life couples share candidly about their struggles in communication, finances, sexual intimacy, expectations, and more. Whether you're newly married, remarried, or wanting to improve your relationship, this study provides Biblical and practical teaching to give you tools to live intentionally and love biblically.

Starting Point
If you're new to Community Church, we'd love to have you join us for Starting Point, where we'll share a bit more in-depth about who we are as a church and how you can grow with us! If you are joining us online, please go to to fill out the form. We would love to connect with you.


Sunday service is available via live stream at 8:30 & 11am.
