Ordinary People Pursuing the Extraordinary God
God has blessed us with a diverse family of believers, recognizing Christ is alive and working in the hearts of His people. Community has a rich history that values the importance of tradition, but is also intentional about demonstrating Christian faith in ways that are relevant today. As you browse this website, we trust you will find helpful information about our ministries and become more familiar with our church family.
Whether you are new to this area or just looking for a church home, we cordially invite you to join us. We’re just like you –ordinary people pursuing the extraordinary God! Community UMC is a place where it’s easy to feel you belong, a place where everyone can make a difference, and a place looking with hope toward the future.

Message from Pastor Ted
Update: Based on recommendations from our Florida Conference Bishop, Ken Carter, we will NOT be gathering for corporate worship until at least June 21st. We will continue doing online worship in the meantime. Please stay tuned for updates.
I know this is disappointing for some of you, but is also a relief for others, as so many of us are making individual decisions about when we need to be out in public again as before.
As you can imagine, even when we do come back for worship "as we did before" we are going to have to take precautions to ensure the safety of all. As our Trustees, staff and others discern what best steps to take, I am asking that we all continue to have patience, understanding and grace for each other. I miss each of you, and pray that you are safe, well and using this time to rejoice in our Risen Lord and the presence of His Spirit in your lives. Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you (James 4:8). God bless you all!
National Day of Prayer
