HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Starting in 1985, Community Church first opened the 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, we moved to a building on Jackson Street for 10 years before building a new facility on Ryf Road.
In September of 2013, Community Church multiplied as we continued to gather on Ryf Road, we also gathered downtown Oshkosh at the 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 Road and Community Church - New City joined together to form Community Church Oshkosh with the vision focused on "Back Together, Better Together".
