Who We Are

Community Church is a small congregation with a big heart for Hurricane, and Putnam County in West Virginia. We are a warm, inviting place open to everyone. Our congregation believes gathering together to worship and honor God builds up our faith in Christ and our commitment to nurture our shared beliefs.

Our services include hymns, praise songs, and choruses to focus our view on Christ. We read the scriptures, pray with and for each other, and listen as the Word of God is proclaimed.

There are classes for children and youth focused on communicating the wonder of the goodness of God that we find in Christ. WE invite you to join us. Community Church just might be “The Place for You.”

Our History

Community Church of Teays Valley started in 2000, meeting weekly at West Teays Elementary School. We moved into our current building in 2005.

Our church continues to maintain a casual atmosphere where people are loved, built up, prayed for, and equipped for ministry through the teaching of God’s Word.

We invite you to check us out in person or online.
