About Us

The Garden

Collingwood is an open Christ-centered community offering hope and spiritual growth through Jesus Christ so all may know God’s love.

Our purpose is to praise and glorify God. God is truly present, active, and involved in our lives.

We rejoice in the Lord. No matter how old, how young, how blessed, or how oppressed our numbers may be, we will always be surrounded by the joy of Christ.

We continually seek to grow in faith through prayer and interactions with others.

We trust in the bible to remind us of what God has done.

We earnestly confess our ever-present sin and we hear God’s assurance of forgiveness and peace for our present day lives.

We trust that God will lead us in to the future transformed, renewed, and equipped to serve Christ and our community.

We respect that people choose to worship in different styles. We offer two distinctly different services. The Garden is an informal, family friendly gathering of people around tables. The music is provided by an uplifting praise band and everyone is encouraged to participate. The Sanctuary provides a traditional worship service based in ritual and order. The music is provided by a magnificent pipe organ and exceptional choirs. While each service appeals to different people, we are all linked together by our love of God as one church family.

Yet, Collingwood strives to be more than just a church family. We are committed to sharing the love of Christ by caring for others and positively impacting our community. We believe mission is not so much an obligation but an opportunity to see how God, who is already present in all places, works in marvelous ways. Service to our community helps us grow to in our own faith and commitment to Christ’s mission.

“Be sincere in your love and hold tight to everything that is good. Love each other and honor one another. Never give up. Eagerly follow the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord. Let your hope make you glad. Be patient and never stop praying. Take care of God’s needy people and welcome strangers into your home.” – (Romans 12:9-13, Abridged CEV)
