About Us

Community Presbyterian Church (CPC) was formed in 1985. Since 1985, we have journeyed from ministering in a series of temporary buildings to constructing and occupying our own 12,000 square foot building in 2000. We have completed three successful capital campaigns that have succeeded at paying off our debt, which speaks to the strong financial commitment of the congregation.

Our building is used throughout the week through an established, long-term collaboration with Children’s Place Nursery School. Future plans for the next stage of expansion will include a dedicated sanctuary.

In the past six years we have added the paid positions of church secretary, Choir Director, and Handbell Director. We are a small church with strong programs including youth/adult Sunday school, vacation Bible school,  youth group, social activities for all ages, choir, summer music program, and Presbyterian Women. We support  organizations such as Channel One Food Shelf/Bank, Ronald McDonald House,  Salvation Army and we participate quarterly in the weekly Saturday Noon Meal Program.

We have six members serving on Session and six Deacons.  CPC has gained respect and an identity in the Rochester community. We have a stable membership which is noteworthy in spite of the frequent relocation of families connected to IBM and Mayo Clinic.
