Our Sunday Services


Our services launch with a time of celebration and passionate worship through music. This normally lasts 20-25 minutes and will be directed from the front. All the words are on the screens so if want to, you can sing along. We encourage you to relax and engage at your own pace, even if that means just listening.

After worship we tell short stories and share upcoming events. At this time you can fill in connection card, especially if you want to learn more about following Jesus, or how to connect further with Commonwealth. We also express our thanks to God through giving our offerings at this point in the service. As our guest, you don’t have to give. If this is your first time to Commonwealth, we encourage you to just drop your connect card in the basket as it goes by.


After worship, we have a relevant and inspirational talk. Our messages are hope-filled and geared toward living our everyday lives to the fullest, just as God designed them to be. Our talks are challenging, biblical, inspiring and applicable to regardless of your church or faith background. We design them to last around 30/35 minutes so you can relax knowing you won't be missing lunch or the big game. 

At the end of the talk we reflect on what we have heard and have a few moments to respond. We always provide an opportunity to make a decision to follow Jesus at this time; there is no pressure in this moment, but we always want to give everyone the opportunity to step into a new life with Jesus.


Get Connected

We would love to get to know you more, and to help you get connected to Commonwealth. One of the best ways we do that is through Growth Track.

Immediately after the service each week we have Growth Track, a one-hour class designed to introduce you to the leaders of Commonwealth, give you some insight on our vision and structure, and give you tools for discovering how you can grow in your faith, in your purpose in life, and in your place within the community. 

The classes can be taken in any order, so you can start this week! We provide lunch and child care during Growth Track as well.
