News & Notes

Welcome to our “News & Notes” blog!
Here you can find all the latest updates on what’s happening at Community Church Oshkosh.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 
according to the power at work within us.  Ephesians 3:20


CCO’s vision is that we follow Jesus together.  We are His disciples given the mission of making disciples. BEYOND is the soul-challenging and faith-stretching journey in which we live out our values of Reach, Connect, and Empower.

PRAYER FOCUS | Ephesians 3:14-15
Our Father in Heaven, it boggles the mind that You, who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them, would want us to be Your children. You have given us life, You care for us, and even when we walked in rebellion to You, You provided a new future and hope for us through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. May we consider all that You have done and provided for us, and in love and gratitude live to please You, our heavenly Father, and give of ourselves and our possessions even as Jesus gave so completely for us. You truly are thee good, good Father and we give You thanks for Your great love for us. Amen.

Here is A LINK to the Study Guide Questions from BEYOND Week 1.  They are also listed in your BEYOND handbook. Please remember to bring your handbook with you each Sunday as we continue in our series, BEYOND. There is a place for sermon notes and reflection. If you weren't able to pick one up last week, we will have them available this Sunday.

Join us for an exciting time of dreaming, discussing, and praying together as we prepare to follow God BEYOND what we could ever do on our own.  We have two meetings remaining: Thursday, October 6th 1-3pm and Sunday, October 9th 6-8pm. Please REGISTER HERE so we can plan accordingly.

Mark your calendar to join us on October 30th for Commitment Sunday. We will gather as an entire church body to make our commitments to the BEYOND Initiative.

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.
