Temporary situation, due to COVID-19: The Church and Office will remain closed at this time. Worship services are being done virtually for now.

Worship from Aug. 2, 2020:

Pastor Julia Penner-Zook delivered a sermon titled “They are Tired too” based on Matthew 14: 13-21. Julia writes: “These months are hard for those who are helpers! All we have to do is pay attention to what is happening to medical professionals, teachers, and support services personnel (to say nothing of parents) as our life continues to be disrupted by COVID-19. Exhaustion and burnout pose a real threat.

“I’m amazed at how Jesus responds to unrelenting demands. One story describes how he’s lost one of his dearest friends to a very brutal execution, and he wants nothing more than to take some time alone to grieve. But, people continue to reach out to him.

“What happens when crises keep coming, and we have hardly enough strength for our own next step? Observing Jesus’ intentions and actions can give us some guidance.”

Join us on Sundays!

Worship and Sunday School/Nursery at 10:30 a.m.

What style of worship experience speaks to you? We know that “one size fits all” doesn’t work for a lot of people.

We offer a Convergence style worship experience at CUCC — offering upbeat contemporary music with an exceptional band, combined with classic, traditional Protestant hymns, on occasion the spirit-filled sound of the organ, and the soothing voices of a choir.

Our service has a casual atmosphere and communion is offered to all on the first Sunday of each month.  The sermons are dynamic and themes will provide you with opportunities to take what you experience in worship into the rest of your daily life.

Prayer Requests

We have many ways for you to pray here at Community UCC, and ways in which we can lend our collective strength to your individual prayer requests.

We have a table in the Narthex (the entry area outside of the Sanctuary) where you can light a candle for yourself, someone, or a place that needs prayer. We have paper and pencil where you can write down your prayer and put it in the container and our confidential prayer team will pray for you for 30 days.

We also have a prayer book where you can write down your prayer and it will be lifted up during worship. Our newest way, you can submit a prayer request through our dedicated prayer request web page. Learn more here.

Worship from July 26, 2020:

Our music director EJ Hinojosa delivered a guest sermon titled “Blessed Assurance” based on Romans 8:26-39. From EJ: “It’s hard times for spiritual people right now, especially empathetic ones. Those of us who most desperately yearn for human unity and kindness may find themselves in a constant state of heartache or anxiety. It doesn’t help that the world tends to punish those who are most able to feel pain — whether physical or emotional.”

“Jesus empowers us to lean into the pain, knowing that the yearning we feel is enough to sustain us. Hardship is natural for those who are sensitive to the ebbing and flowing of the world. Only the oblivious are immune — “ignorance is bliss”, as they say. God calls us to double-down, dig deep and place our trust in him.”

Worship from July 19, 2020:

Pastor Julia Penner-Zook delivered a sermon titled “Is Hope Delusional or Disruptive?” based on Romans 5:1-5. From Julia: “Our everyday lives often challenge us to the core. Do we lose hope, believing that having hope is unrealistic, given our time in history?”
