What to Expect at The Community Church
Expect to feel welcomed!
Thanks for checking out the Community Church of Sebastopol - you probably have many questions, we try to answer some of them here. Please contact us with any other questions you may have.
We are located at 1000 Gravenstein Hwy North in Sebastopol. Here you can find a map and detailed directions.
As you turn onto Danmar Drive off of Gravenstein Hwy, we have a large parking lot immediately to the right. Or you can turn left into the church campus for handicap parking and additional parking closer to the church buildings.
Please come as you are! You will find everything from the occasional suit and tie to jeans and flip flops.
We are an “open and affirming church,” which means we are committed to welcoming and affirming people of every religious background, family composition, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, ethnicity, age and gender. At the Community Church of Sebastopol, you’ll worship with single people and married couples; families with two moms and those with a mom & a dad; seniors and twenty-somethings.
No matter where you are in life's journey, you are welcome here.
