of its 25th anniversary, Community Christian Church will be holding
baptism celebrations March 1 & 2, 2014 at all of its 14 locations, including its Lemont location. Community
Christian Church was founded in March of 1989 by brothers Dave and Jon Ferguson,
Dave’s wife Sue, and three other close friends, who sketched out their vision
on a napkin in a restaurant in central Illinois shortly after graduating from
college. Initially meeting in the cafeteria of Naperville Central High School,
COMMUNITY now has grown to more than 5,600 attenders and celebrates weekly at
14 locations throughout the Chicagoland area: East Aurora, Chicago Edgewater,
Chicago Lincoln Park | Old Town, Chicago Lincoln Square, Glen Ellyn, Lemont,
Montgomery, Naperville Yellow Box, Naperville Downtown, Plainfield, Plainfield
(Carillon), Romeoville, Shorewood, and Yorkville.
COMMUNITY’s mission is and always has been “Helping People Find Their Way Back to God.” One of their core beliefs is that baptism is a pivotal moment in the life of a Christ-follower.
“What better way to celebrate 25 years of helping people find their way back to God than by devoting an entire weekend to just that, through baptism? We’re super-excited about what the celebration will bring!” says co-founder Dave Ferguson.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in the celebration. Those interested in being baptized the weekend of March 1 & 2 or interested in learning more about baptism can visit www.communitychristian.org/baptism.
