All Are Welcome, No Exceptions

Worship Experience:

Welcome to Community Church

Spiritual growth is not one size fits all. We are a United Methodist Church, a Christian Protestant denomination that emphasizes God’s love and justice for all people. Community Church is for anyone who wants to find hope, acceptance, and fun! Currently, our one service is traditional, minus some of the church lingo. We are a diverse group, the dress is casual and our coffee is OK. You’re invited to join us!


Reaching Higher Preschool

This well-known Preschool was established in 1972 for the community of Fox River Grove. Our small preschool has two teachers and a spacious environment.

Teen Activities

Our Church regularly partners with different venues to host teen events out in the community.

Life Groups

Our Life Groups are where spiritual life really happens, with support, laughter, and learning together. Our Life Groups, or small groups, meet around town in people’s homes and
at church.

Community Service

Throughout the year, our faith community provides many opportunities to reach out and serve others. These activities are open to everyone at any skill level.

Prayer Team

We absolutely believe in the power of prayer. The Prayer Team informally gathers together in the Sanctuary to pray for our church, Preschool families, and the community.

Midwest Mission

We are proud to be a collection point for the Midwest Mission Distribution Center. Midwest Mission works in cooperation with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to collect supplies in response to disasters within the United States.
