Adult Ministry

Congregational churches have always believed that people should learn as much as they can about our world and God’s place in it. We at Community Church believe that knowledge is not the enemy of faith, but rather that a curious mind can’t help but wonder and marvel at the beauty of our world and our place in it. We value questions as much or more than answers because questions invite us to keep on exploring. We recognize that all of life is spiritual and that there is no clear boundary between the sacred and secular. With that in mind, we invite anyone with a curious mind and a desire to learn to participate in our educational opportunities.

Bible Studies

Three different Bible Study groups gather during the course of a week to deepen our understanding of the Scriptures as we view them through current scholarship, share our insights, and support each other as we attempt to live it out in the context of our own lives. More information on Men's Bible Study can be found here and more information on Women's Bible Study can be found here.


“Community@Community” meets on the third Wednesday evening of each month. We share a meal, a conversation, and devotional time together. It’s a great way to meet others from Community Church and get to know them better. More information can be found here.

“Explore and Engage”
“Explore and Engage” meets monthly to explore a topic through lecture, film, or interview, and then engage by seeking to think and live in new ways. More information and a sign-up link may be found here.
Ella Dodd Distinguished Lecture Series

This year our Ella Dodd Lectures will be given by Rev. Wesley Granberg-Michaelson who will be with us during the second week of November. Wesley is the former General Secretary of the Reformed Church in America, and a founding managing editor of Sojourners magazine. His talks will focus around his book, “Future Faith: Ten Challenges Reshaping Christianity in the 21st Century”; a look at how the winds of change blowing through global Christian faith are reshaping the practice of Christianity today. Other books include: “Without Oars: Casting off into a Life of Pilgrimage”, “From Times Square to Timbuktu, How Change Comes to your Church”, and “Leadership from the Inside Out”.

We are offering a Book Study especially for parents this fall! Join us as we learn five simple, practical skills even the most harried parent can use, based on the book Listen by Patty Wipfler and Tosha Schore. Listen introduces tools that will help parents strengthen their connection with their child and help build their child's intelligence, cooperation, and ability to learn as they grow. Beginning Wednesday, October 5 @ 5:30-7pm, parents will meet with Char Higgins in The Loft for this 6-week class. Child-care, including a pizza dinner, will be provided. Please contact to register for this helpful parenting book study!

Mark your calendars for March 10-11, 2023 for 70 x 7:  Forgiven & Forgiving”. For many of us, forgiveness is one of the hardest gifts to receive and one of the hardest gifts to give. Over the course of our time together, we will explain what it means to be forgiven, who forgiveness is for, and the interplay between forgiveness and memory. In a world where women juggle so much, how do we live as forgiven and forgiving people - who do not also apologize for the space we occupy?
