Since 1963, Community Church has been a welcoming, democratic, independent
Christian community.  Now
both Independent and United Church of Christ, our mission
is still to welcome independent-minded people of all ages, build a diverse Christian
community, and nurture one another to love God, neighbor and self.
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

Explore Healing Prayer
an Ongoing Friday class

Revs. Paul & Elizabeth are leading (not teaching!) a
class on multiple ways of praying using Richard Foster’s
book
Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home.
A few of the many types of prayer experienced are
The Prayer of Rest, The Prayer of Relinquishment,
Meditative Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, Petitionary
Prayer, Healing Prayer, and The Prayer of Suffering.  
Each week we will read a chapter in Foster’s book,
practice the type of prayer mentioned throughout the
week, and then share our prayer experiences with each
other during that week’s class.  Thus, we will all be
teachers to one another!
 
Healing Ministry  
Every Fourth
Sunday  
Healing  Prayer is available

the fourth Sunday every

loved one.  
Help make possible charitable grants that make a
