Join us for Kick-Off Sunday Sept. 9!

Kick-Off Sunday means we celebrate new members and take part in a BBQ lunch following worship on Sunday, Sept. 9. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!

The Fellowship Team is hosting a lunch following worship to celebrate Kick Off Sunday. Grilled hot dogs (meat and veggie options), picnic side dishes, desserts and root beer floats will be served. There is no charge, but a “free will offering” is requested to offset expenses. Please consider making a small donation.

Break the Barriers will perform and the Syrian family our church is befriending hopes to attend.

Considering joining Community UCC?

If you want to learn more about becoming a member of our church, please join us at 9 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, for an informational meeting. We officially receive new members four times a year:

  • During Kickoff Sunday, Sept. 9
  • First Sunday in Advent (winter)
  • Easter Sunday (spring)
  • Pentecost Sunday (summer)

New members may attend an informational class, usually a month before one of the four Sunday worship services to receive new members. The information class is organized by the Extravagant Welcome Team, or “elders.”

Even between those times, there are many ways you can become involved in the offerings of our church life.

Kick-Off Sunday is when Community UCC members come together to welcome new members, commission our Sunday School teachers, bless our confirmands and break bread together following worship. It was great to see our Sanctuary so full today for this vibrant day in the life of our church!
