Next Steps FAQ
At Community, we know that growing spiritually isn’t one-size-fits-all, and each of us grows at our own pace. We have, however, identified several steps that we encourage every follower of Jesus to take in their spiritual journey. These steps are represented by icons that appear on your Dashboard.
Some of these icons may be blue, indicating you have taken that spiritual step. Others may be gray, which just means you haven’t taken that specific step yet. We hope it will be an encouragement to light your icons and take those spiritual steps.
We believe that baptism by immersion is the best way to express your faith and follow Jesus’ example.
Your BAPTISM icon will turn blue once you have been baptized by immersion. If you have been baptized by immersion outside of Community, please let us know by updating your profile using this form.
If you have not been baptized by immersion, click here to watch our Baptism Class video to find out what the Bible says about baptism and why we baptize by immersion.
We believe that in order to grow in our faith, we should actively and regularly worship in a community of believers.
Your WORSHIP icon will turn blue if you have attended in-person or watched online 3 times in the past 12 weeks. The best way to do this is by using the Check-In feature in our mobile app when you are attending in-person or watching online. Other things that will light your Worship icon are (1) checking in your child for in-person Community Kids Sunday programming, and (2) when you give to Community.
If you have attended regularly and your WORSHIP icon is not blue, please email Associate Pastor Bill Davis at email@example.com.
Giving is a biblical principle designed to teach us to trust God daily for our provisions. When we give, we demonstrate our reliance and gratitude to God for all that He provides for us.
Your GIVE icon will turn blue the first time you give to Community and will remain lit if you have given at least 3 times in the past 12 weeks OR if you have given at least $500 in the past 12 weeks.

We believe spiritual growth and the resulting life change happens best when you’re connecting with others in a small group setting.
Your CONNECT icon will turn blue when you get connected to a LifeGroup at Community and have attended 3 times in the past 12 weeks. Click here to find out more about LifeGroups at Community.
We believe serving others is one of the most effective ways to live out your faith. Community is a volunteer-intensive organization. Simply put, we cannot live out our mission to change the world…one person at a time without you!
Your SERVE icon will turn blue when you’ve been added to a serving team at Community and have checked in to serve 3 times in the past 12 weeks.
