Welcome to the Chippewa Lake Community Church web page. We are a congregation
with a kingdom mentality. That is, this church body is friendly and loving, a people with a
focus on God, his Word, and his people. We want you to experience God's presence as
you worship and listen to the message. We hope you will find each week's message
inspiring, challenging, and uplifting.

Another of our goals is to help people discover and fulfill their purpose in God's
kingdom. We do this by encouraging one another, worshiping together, and providing
opportunities to serve others.

We are focused on outreach, especially in our local community. We look for ways to
make the most of every opportunity before the Lord returns.
If you are searching for a church where the sermons are always fresh and full of fire, the
people kind and loving, we invite you to come and check us out. We look forward to
meeting you personally.
