Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Community Church at Murphy’s Landing located?
Our building is located at the point of Harding Street and Bluff Road on Indy’s Southside. You can also find us on Google Maps.
 
Are we a part of a denomination?
We are an independent community church. We started as a church plant of Community Church of Greenwood in 1996.
 
What are the services like?
Our music is a blend of contemporary and traditional. The sermons are always biblically based and the speakers strive to be practical and relevant.
 
What should I wear?
You’ll see as much variety in dress as you see in people. Some folks dress tastefully casual while others wear the more traditional Sunday business attire. We don’t judge by appearances because we know that God is interested in what’s on the inside.
 
Should I bring a Bible?
We encourage everyone to bring a Bible. We want you to see for your self what the Word of God says and not just take our word for it. If you don’t have one, stop by our welcome center and we would be glad to provide a free copy.
 
What about my children?
We have something for each age group. We offer nursery for children from 0-36 months, Pre-School for children ages 3-5 who have not yet started school, and JAM City (our children’s church “Jesus and Me”) for children from kindergarten to fifth grade.
 
Because we are committed to the safety of your children, all volunteers have been screened, including a background check.
Once I arrive, where should I go first or when I have questions?
Our Welcome Center is located just inside our main entrance. Members working in these areas will answer your questions and help you and your children know where to go.
 
Can I meet the pastor?
Absolutely! Pastor Paul is generally in our gathering area following the service and look forward to meeting you!
 
How is the leadership structured?
Our church operates under the biblical leadership structure of an Eldership.  The pastor, staff,and ministry leaders handle daily operations.
 
What happens during communion in worship services?
The Lord’s Supper (communion) is the memorial Jesus gave to remind us of the price He paid – He gave His life – for our sins. All who have personally trusted Jesus as Lord are invited to eat the bread and drink the juice after quiet meditation. Membership at our church is not required.
 
Do you have small groups?
Yes. Our small groups are called Life Groups. These groups are made up of four or more people. Life Group members come together on a regular basis in homes to support one another, grow in their faith and serve others.
