HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Starting in 1985, Community Church first opened its doors at the YMCA in downtown Oshkosh. Founded by Steve and Lynne Johnson, the church became a safe space for people with questions about faith to explore Christianity in community. As the church grew, it moved first to a building on Jackson St. for 10 years before building a new facility on Ryf Rd.
In September of 2013, Community Church multiplied as it continued to gather on Ryf Rd., it also gathers downtown Oshkosh at City Center as Community Church – New City.
In 2015 some Oshkosh residents that spend their winters in Florida asked us to partner with them in an effort to invigorate the church services in a retirement community in Winter Haven. Since then we have partnered with them to create Community Church – Winter Haven.
On October 3rd of 2021 Community Church - Ryf Rd. and Community Church - New City joined together to form Community Church Oshkosh with the vision focused on "Back Together, Better Together"
