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.

Parenting - Mental Health 101
One in five children in the U.S. suffers with anxiety, and that number is on the rise. Rates of depression, mental, and emotional health challenges are also increasing in our children. This class will help parents navigate the murky waters of "mental health" through the lens of Bible-Based Counseling. Join us for this three-week series as we dive deeper into the following topics: Depression, Anxiety, Anger.
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.
