The Five Solas (Worship Center)
Looking at the horror, tragedy, and false doctrines permeating the church today, you may be tempted into thinking that Christianity today is facing its greatest threat ever. While it’s true that our generation faces some unique challenges, it’s also helpful to remember that the Christian faith has always been under siege. In these five sessions, we will explore the five essential points of doctrine known as the five Solas that originated during the Reformation. Simple and yet comforting, the five Solas are the foundation to helping us hold on to the truth and counter false teaching.  

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry (Room 1)
We are all busy. Some of us can't remember the last time we rested or even had free time. Our busyness can feel productive but it is a toxic distraction, sapping our spiritual, physical, and emotional vitality. It may seem like we have no choice but to live at a frantic pace, but God has a better path for us. Join us as we address one of the greatest threats to our spiritual lives: hurry. Instead of allowing our calendars and screens to control our lives, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace, and beauty.

Global Prayer Gathering (Board Room)
Join us for a time of prayer focused on missionaries.

Starting Point (Family Room)
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!
