Education is a significant ministry in the life of the Community Church, for we affirm that one is never done growing in the faith. To that end, the Education committee in conjunction with the Pastor and other professionals offers a variety of programs for spiritual growth. In the past we have offered programs such as Islam 101, Handel's Messiah, Lost Christianities, The Parables, Music Appreciation, and The Reformation. We have a number of ongoing weekly programs such as three Bible study groups, a Monday lecture series, retreats, "small groups," and a monthly spiritual themes in literature group.
