We are a non-denominational community of faith, seeking to reach out to the next generation of believers.
We're about connections: to God, to one another, and to God's purpose for the world.
Starting fresh, we have the freedom to try new things, and also old things in new ways. Together, we seek to live for the common good. We emphasize what unites all Christians, drawing from other Christians across time and continents.
From the beginning
We first began meeting in homes, then park pavilions. We even met in a 150-year-old barn for a while! We began worshiping at South Range High School in North Lima in the fall of 2003 and had our public opening there in April 2004. Our official Chartering Service was held on November 13, 2005.
Where we are now
We purchased the former Mellinger's Nursery in North Lima in August 2006, and began the lengthy renovation process. We were able to begin worshiping in our new home in October 2008, as the renovations continued. When the COVID-19 pandemic sent the country into lockdown in March 2020, we joined forces with Connecting Life Church. Pastor Mike Hileman provided online sermons for both churches. When in-person gatherings resumed, both churches began worshiping together here at Common Ground Church Community.
