More About Us
Christ Community Church is a Church of God in Christ community of faith that seeks to make tradition relevant for today. Through inspiring worship, Christian education and spiritual formation for all ages, local and national ministry opportunities, and relational outreach, we follow Jesus Christ and make Him known in our community and beyond.
Christ Community offers several opportunities for worship and prayer every week. And whether you’ve been in church all your life, or never stepped foot in a church before, you will feel comfortable joining us on a Sunday morning.
Dr. Carl E. King is the senior pastor of Christ Community. With passion, clarity, and authenticity, he delivers Bible-centered messages that bring to life the Word of God in new, fresh, and applicable ways. Every week you will leave worship with a renewed faith in God.
The “Community” in Christ Community Church
The Community Within
When we speak of community at Christ Community Church, we speak of many things. God gave Pastor King a vision to start a church in which “the community” existed within the church. First and foremost, we are a community of faith established on our common confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We are a community of love following the commands of our Lord to love one another. We are a community whose leaders and members mutually maintain connection, provide care, communicate in love, collaborate in ministry, live out our commitments to our church and one another, and hold each other accountable so we continue to grow individually and collectively.
The Surrounding Community
We are more than a group of members who stay within the walls of our building. Christ Community Church is actively engaged in our surrounding community. Our pastor is a faithful member of the South Holland Ministerial Association, serving on its executive committee, and is a chaplain for the South Holland police, fire and emergency services departments. Leaders and members of Christ Community are actively engaged in various roles in South Holland Village governance, including appointees to Village Commissions, as well as elected officials of the local school board. We are teachers and counselors in the schools and community.
The church hosts a championship community basketball team for teen boys, as well as a weekly volleyball night for area chaplains. We are a site for community-based recovery groups, as well as a site for the court system’s community service program. Christ Community is a corporate member of the South Holland Community Center, enabling our members to join and use the South Holland Community Center at a discounted rate.
The Community Extended
We humbly recognize the needs across the globe and support the work of missions both domestically and globally. From supporting the building and dedication of an orphanage in Haiti, to supporting missionary trips across the globe in prayer and finances, to partnering with Thornton Township Food Pantry, to supporting a local men’s shelter, local nursing homes and local domestic violence crisis centers in various ways, our commitment to the community extends beyond our doors.
