Our focus isn't starchy religion or rituals, but a real relationship with God.


Welcome from the Pastor

“At Community our focus isn’t starchy religion or rituals, but a real relationship with God. If you’re full of faith or full of questions, whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, I’d love for you to join us for one of our Sunday services. Take a minute and check out the rest of the site. I hope it’s a help. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’ll look forward to meeting you this Sunday!” – Joseph Barnhardt, Pastor
