COMMUNITY CHURCH News & Announcements


Rooted and Grounded in Love

I once was asked by a non-Christian what made Christianity different from other religions. While I gave him an adequate answer, it was not until recently that I realized what I should have said. The distinguishing mark of Christianity is the Trinity. Very little of who God is and what God does makes sense for a single god, but all that we know of God is explainable when we consider His Triunity. Even so, many Christians struggle to recognize the significance of the Trinity. Read More

Free Christians, Disciplined Church

I am often frustrated by my lack of discipline. I put off responsibilities that I don't like to do for things that I enjoy more, and often I find myself at the end of my responsibilities scrambling to get things done. Sometimes people like me say that they "work better under pressure" as a way to excuse their lack of discipline, but I can say that it is nothing more than self-centeredness and sin that causes these complications in my life. But Paul encourages us to discipline ourselves toward godliness (1 Tim 4:7-8). I thank God that He is continuing to work on my own self-discipline issues and that my transformation is dependent more on His grace than my self-discipline. May God strengthen us all to grow to discipline ourselves to be godly! Read More

Mother's Day

Sunday is Mother's Day. I'm sure that I'm not the first to remind you. Every store I walk in and email blast I receive reminds me. We will also worship together on Sunday, but we won't worship moms. Mother's Day is a good thing because it reminds us to be thankful for our moms and all they do or have done for us; it also helps us turn from our self-centeredness. We should honor our moms (Eph 6:2), but we shouldn't worship our moms. As you thank and honor your mom, don't forget to worship your God for giving you a mom and remember that even a good mom is a gift to draw your attention to Him. May God be praised for good and godly moms. Read More
