What should I wear?
Come as you are. There’s no dress code at Community. You will see people in their Sunday best and those in more casual clothing. Wear what makes you comfortable.
What about my children?
Children are wanted and welcomed in worship at Community. Children's bulletins are available at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship. If your infant or small child needs care during the service, we provide nursery near our coffee station. We would invited you to look at our Children's Ministry page and Child Protection Policy.
What if I haven’t been to church in a long time or never before?
Don’t let that keep you away. There was a first Sunday for all of us. An usher will give you a bulletin that outlines what happens during the service. Join in on the parts of the service you feel comfortable with, or just sit, watch and listen if you prefer.
What if I still have more questions?
