Together on purpose. That vision may never have been more important than it has been throughout 2021. No doubt, this past year has been one that has left an impact on all of us. However, through all the strife, uncertainty, and anxiety, the message of Jesus Christ has had opportunities to shine brighter, bolder and stronger.
For Community Church, our commitment to advance the Gospel never took a break or a pause. Through your generosity and commitment to the God-sized vision of ADVANCE, together we launched a campus, funded ministry, provided support and most importantly, embraced opportunities to share the message of the hope we have in Jesus in familiar as well as creative ways.
ADVANCE is a step into a deeper relationship with our Lord and Savior. It is our hope that you will encounter Him in a new and challenging way, and hear when He places before you an opportunity to show your love through generosity.
We want to be the Church. We are not spiritual spectators; we are spiritual contributors. We are convinced that every follower of Christ is called to serve the Savior who was crucified.
God is calling us to live together on purpose, empowered by His spirit. Let’s continue to press on, to keep taking ground for the Kingdom and ADVANCE!
Help us accomplish this mission.
