Our Services

What are services like?
Worship at Commonwealth Baptist Church is inviting and engaging. Some people wear their Sunday best. Many wear jeans. Music is mostly led by our fantastic pianist. We include guitar with our choruses and the organ with our hymns. We make space for children in our worship service, and we include them in leadership. We do also have a nursery for infants-5 year-olds, if parents want to us it.

What is the community like?
Our faith community is warm and welcoming. No matter your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, what you have or don't have, you are welcome here.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We are a safe place to explore, wrestle, and become.

Robin has a knack for teaching kids. We love serving in ministry together. We have 3 young children and a goofy dachshund named Weasely.
