New campus in Alma, MI coming January 2020. 


After a year of prayer, study, consulting, and planning with the staff, elders, and trustees, Community Church will be launching a second campus in Alma, MI in January 2020.

We will be one church in two locations.

 


Community Church: Alma will look and feel like Community Church: Mount Pleasant in as many ways as possible, including live worship, video streamed preaching from the teaching team, and dynamic kidLife experiences. We have entered into an agreement with Central Michigan Youth For Christ in Alma to lease their facilities on Sundays for a worship experience for all ages.

Leading this new and thrilling outreach adventure will be our new Alma Campus pastor, Aaron Mora. 

Please be in prayer about this initiative. If you would like to receive updates, specific prayer needs, or would consider attending or serving in Alma, fill out the form below.

Alma Campus FAQ

Why open a new location in alma?

Our research has shown that there is a unique opportunity for a church like ours in Gratiot County. There are thousands of people in Alma and the surrounding cities who are not currently plugged into a church community. There are also over 300 families who already regularly attend the Mount Pleasant Campus from Gratiot County.

When will the campus launch?

We are planning to launch the new campus in Alma, MI in January 2020. In the meantime, there will be gatherings in the area to keep people informed.

Where will the new campus be located? 

We have entered into a three-year lease agreement to use Central Michigan Youth for Christ's building at 2550 W Cheesman Rd in Alma, MI. This arrangement will be for hosting Sunday morning church services. Our intention is to immediately begin planning for a permanent location.

What can I expect at the new campus? 

Community Church in Alma will look and feel like Community Church in Mount Pleasant as much as possible. There will be live worship and amazing ministry for children. There will also be opportunities to connect and grow together. The messages will be broadcast from Mount Pleasant in a high quality format.

Was this a quick decision?

Over the past 12 months, our leadership team has prayed and considered this opportunity very carefully.
