To Experience and Share the Love of Jesus Christ

If you are watching service online today, you can watch
on Facebook or YouTube

read this week's Encouragement from the Pastor,
and let us know you're here by filling out our online Connection Card.


Update Week 2: We need $193,000 to break even for the year...
and we have 5 weeks left to do it. With your help we can make it!
 
We thank everyone who donated their tithes and extra donations to our 2020-year-end budget goal of $213,000. We fell a bit short of our week 1 target of $35,500, coming in at $20,000.  

That means we need to raise $38,600 per week for the next five weeks to break even on our budget by the end of the year. That comes to about $495 per church family! Breaking that down even more, if each family gives $99 per week for the next five weeks, we will hit our goal. We will show you this thermometer gauging our progress each week until the end of the year. Let’s pray together and keep the thermometer moving until it reaches the top! We are trusting in God's provision.
If you haven't turned in your 2021 Commitment Card, please drop those off in the basket in church.

Online pledging can be done by clicking here.
We are in need of volunteers for our Hospitality Team, Campus Operations Team and Christmas Helpers.

Can you serve coffee at Church with a smile? Or be extra hands around the campus to work on landscaping and power washing? We need you! Contact us at church@commpres.com to find a place to serve this holiday season!
