we are not made
to do this alone
We believe that God made us in His image and that image includes living life in community.
The best thing we can do for you is to help you connect in what we call a Community Group. In a Group, you will meet people that are on a spiritual journey, just like you are. You will spend time, typically every other week, sharing a meal, reading the Bible, praying, and living life together.
But most of all, you will have people around you when life is hard so you can have support, and when life is good so you can celebrate.
Here is how it works
SHOW UP: Come visit us on Sunday morning. We have a safe and fun place for your kids. We have coffee and snacks. We sit together for a time of singing and a time of teaching. And we do all of this together…in community.
SAY HELLO: We want to meet you. We work hard to try and meet everyone. But we don’t want to miss you. So please, extend a hand and let us welcome you.
STAY CONNECTED: We have learned that attending church on Sunday is not enough to truly meet the needs of finding faith and finding friends. It is in settings made for friendship that we can deeply find these answers. The best thing we can do to help you on your spiritual journey is to both: (1) sit with you on Sunday mornings; and, (2) do life with you in a smaller group. We call those smaller groups Community Groups, and you can join one right away!
A message from Pastor DAVE CROSBY JR.
I love the Poconos and I love Lehigh Valley. I was born and raised in this community and returned here after college to be a part of Community Church.
At Community Church, we like to say we are FOR the Poconos. We want to be known for what we are FOR, not what we are against. When we say we are FOR the Poconos, we are saying we are for you. We want you to find faith in God through Jesus, and find friends that will do life with you on your journey.
We want everyone here to find these things. Why? Because we found these things at Community Church and it has changed everything for us.
Because we found faith, we found purpose. We found a reason for life. And we have found joy in the journey of life, even when that journey is hard.
Because we found friends, we found acceptance. We feel known and loved by people. And that gives us the support we need when life is hard, and the smiles we need when it is time to celebrate.
I hope you will visit us. If you have visited before, I hope you will visit again. We are a perfect place for imperfect people. Please introduce yourself to me if you visit. I look forward to meeting you.
