7-Day Ministries

Church Sunday @ 9:30 am 

While we value and encourage intergenerational community, we also recognize that one size does not necessarily fit all. This is why we are committed to building a growing variety of ‘generational’ ministries, from college to young adult, and singles to sages. These ministry efforts are geared to those who would benefit by engaging with others who share their particular life stage while they grow with God and each other. 

The best place to begin at any age is by getting involved in a LifeGroup… this is because life change happens best in small groups!

Beyond this step you will find special events planned throughout the year in the following areas:

Young Adults | Women | Men
Singles | Marriage | Senior

A Jesus Centered Ministry

serving students from 6th – 12th grade throughout the Gunnison Valley by providing weekly activities, Bible studies, life groups, and overall discipleship opportunities.


It is our desire to direct students attention to who Jesus is and who He calls us to be. By exposing, explaining and exercising the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, confident that only this Truth has the power to save and change lives from merely knowing about Him to knowing Him and making Him known as the one True God and the Hope of the world.

“It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it (ISAIAH 2:2).”

Children’s Ministry

At Community Church we are committed to be a full-service ministry, and this includes a high-priority commitment to investing in the next generation of Christ followers.  While we embrace a conviction that Dads and Moms are the first line of responsibility in the spiritual instruction of children, we are passionate about coming alongside parents to aid them in the cultivation of faith in their children!  At Community Church, your kids will find numerous fun, exciting and challenging ways to be involved…


JAM represents age-graded ministry on Sunday mornings from nursery through 6th Grade.  JAM provides age-appropriate spiritual instruction aimed at communicating God’s love for each child; exposing them to gospel basics through the rich and varied stories of the Bible.  Our Children’s Ministry places a high value on providing a safe and secure environment in which children can learn and grow.  We have a volunteer team committed to the task of caring for kids and addressing the specific challenges of each age group with a child-volunteer ratio that enables us to care for each individual child.  Every volunteer who serves completes a thorough background check and is directly supervised by our Children’s Minister, Julie Klug.

Jesus League

The Jesus League meets Thursdays after school from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m starting September 24, 2020.  The Jesus League kids can often be spotted around town doing random acts of kindness and community service.  In January they will make regular visits to Gunnison’s Senior living community.  The program is two hours of fun, fellowship, Bible lessons and community service that all helps the children develop strong friendships with God, one another, their family and community.  This program is free and open to children aged 1st grade through 5th.   You can sign your child up HERE! 

VBS (Vacation Bible School) Register by July 21, 2021

(2021’s theme is “Rocky Railway:  Jesus’s power pulls us through.”)

Kids’ lives are unpredictable, filled with ups and downs, drops and dips, and twists and turns.  Life can sometimes feel out of control and off track.  Kids are still learning to process all changes that life can throw at them.  Rocky Railway VBS is intentionally designed to show kids the power of Jesus – something they can count on to pull them through when life doesn’t feel so fun or adventurous.  At Rocky Railway, kids will deepen their friendship with Jesus, who empowers them to boldy face life’s challenges!

VBS 2021 will be held at Community Church’s Webster hall August 2nd through the 6th.   This dynamic week is sponsored by Community Church, Bethany Baptist and Trinity Church.  Sign up information will be available early Spring.
