We are a Presbyterian Church USA congregation that subscribes to the great themes of the Reformed tradition; grace alone, faith alone, Scripture alone. We believe we are elected for service under the authority of Scripture and called to be faithful stewards of all God’s gifts. We acknowledge and confess Jesus Christ is Lord. We aspire to be His hands and feet and voices in the world.
Community Presbyterian Church of Deerfield Beach, Florida was
established in the late 1940’s along the then quiet southeast coast of Florida.
A small rectangular worship building was built on the island beside
the beach. God worked through the Presbyterian Church, a small
number of devoted Christian leaders and a few families to plant and
grow the church. By 1970 the congregation ballooned to nearly
1,000 members and established fine worship and educational facilities still enjoyed today.
Our sanctuary offers the feel of a large church. It seats 500 easily and is adorned with a tastefully lighted cross and high ceilings. The setting provides terrific acoustics for proclamation of the Word, for vocals, for the grand piano and for one of south Florida’s most powerful pipe organs.
Our intimate chapel seats 80 and provides the quiet simple ambiance of a small church.
Briggs Hall, the site of original worship services at the church in the early years, provides a terrific casual informal setting for church activities and fellowship.
Today we are a small church in terms of numbers; roughly 75 active members and about an equal number of affiliate members and friends, but we are diverse, dynamic and welcoming.
The church now finds itself in a world that is often neither quiet nor tranquil. Southeast Florida is rich in multicultural diversity and rich therefore in challenges.
God understands and beckons us to stand with Christ, to honor the Reformed Tradition relying on God’s Holy Spirit and Holy Scripture to guide our voices and steps. We struggle, strive and succeed in Christian fellowship by God’s grace.
