FAMILY MATTERS TO US

We believe God has called the Church to partner with families to help them be strong and centered in Christ.

The Co // Women

Bible Study

We want to help you find women you enjoy spending time with who will encourage you to grow in your faith. At The Community Co we believe that you can’t become the best version of yourself, by yourself, and that’s where Bible Studies come in. God's word, dig in!

Events

The Community Co is a place for women in every stage of their spiritual journey… a place where you can belong even before you believe. It truly is a great place for a fresh start. We have various events planned throughout the year for women to connect and be refreshed. We would love for you to check us out and get connected soon!

The Co // Men

As men, we need each other. At The Community Co we have various opportunities for men to connect. From cool events to our Men's Pitcrew Bible study that meets every other Saturday, Bible studies that meet throughout the week or just hanging out over a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning! Our groups are the best way to get connected. They exist in order that us guys can share and support each other.

We’re more than just friends. We’re partnering with each other in life and discovering what it is like to start doing it on our own. But we aren’t alone. We believe that each time we meet together, Jesus is with us too. We believe that God's Word illuminates our path and sharpens us to be more like Jesus. We would love for you to get connected in one of our mens group opportunities!

The Co // Kids

We’ve created a weekend experience designed especially for our littlest attenders. Each weekend, your child will get the opportunity to play, hear a Bible story, sing, connect with kids their own age, and be encouraged by adult leaders to make wise decisions. They’ll have fun, feel safe, and learn about God in a way that they'll understand. All volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands. We show your kids that church is a safe place where they will be cared for by adults they can trust!

Early Childhood (Birth - Pre-K)

We help even our youngest kids become familiar with Bible stories and learn about Jesus' love for them. We provide kids with a place where they feel safe and cared for and can begin to learn how to trust God and others. All volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands. We show your kids that church is a safe place where they will be cared for by adults they can trust!

Elementary (K - 5th)

This is what it’s all about: Kids finding purpose and community, and having a ton of fun as they learn about Jesus. That’s why the hour on Sunday that we spend with your child, ages K-5th grade, is infused with intentional small groups, crazy games, interactive teaching and dynamic worship. We hope your kids leave on Sundays, full of excitement about their experience in The Community Co Kids.

Mission Statement

We want to engage students where they are at, encourage them in the gifts God has given them, and to experience Jesus in everything we do.

We meet Wednesday nights during the school year, providing an environment where students can engage in worship, hear relevant teaching, connect in groups and create a place students call home.

Special Events

At The Community Co, there's always something fun going on for students. Whether it be guys and girls nights, tubing, lake days or movie nights,  there is always plenty of time built in to hang out. You get to be yourself, let loose and have a great time growing in your relationship with God!

Mission Trips/Retreats

Our goal  is to create lasting life change and lead students to encounter Jesus in a new way. We think this is done best by getting out of our bubble and getting away and unplugged. Every fall students have a chance to get a weekend away for our Fall Retreat at Trout Lake Camp. Each summer we offer a mission trip opportunity, an ongoing effort to love the world around us the way that God has loved us. We know what it’s like to need a little help, and we have committed to being a force of love to the world around us.

Weddings

We believe that marriage is best experienced within the context of the Church as something that was established by God. If you are planning your wedding and would like to get more information regarding a pastor to officiate, pre-marital counseling, or using our facilities for your ceremony just click the button below.

Funerals

Funerals are a time when families most intensely feel the need for spiritual guidance. We see them as an opportunity to serve and love those who are connected to our church. It's a time when families need support and love, and it's our job to be there when you need us.
