Communities

"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you."

John 15:12

Sometimes finding "your people" can be hard- especially if your new to church or new to town. That's why Celebration has Communities. Communities are your chance to connect to other people in the same stage of life as you for a meal and more. Each Community meets once a month.

We want Celebration to be a community of friends. In your Community you can... 

Belong...

enjoy worship and connection as part of the Sunday morning worhsip experience with others in your community. 

Connect...

through monthly gatherings and other events. 

Grow...

as part of a Group on Sunday mornings or other times throughout the week. 

Serve...

through community projects and mission events geared to you and your family's needs and abilities.
