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 Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Parables, Music Appreciation, and The Reformation. We have a number of ongoing weekly programs such as Bible study groups, a Monday lecture series, retreats, "small groups," and book reviews. For specific information or times and dates of current programs, please contact the church office at 480-471-7239, view the church calendar, or email email@example.com.
