About The Church 2018-05-24T20:12:45+00:00

Our journey began in the spring of 03. A small group of people gather at the Rainbow Springs State Park and Dunnellon Community Church was formed. Our community didn’t need another church, just one that was different. The church people had plenty of churches to attend- what we needed was a church for the rest of us. We are committed to relevant truth, not religious tradition.We want to lead people into a relationship with God as well as help people discover a life purpose and enjoy the journey.

When you experience one of our Sunday gatherings it will be a casual atmosphere with non judgmental, glad to see you people. The music will sound like what you already listen to and the speaker will be clear and easy to understand.  Our goal is to connect you to God with life changing information and inspiration.

We are highly committed to affect the youth of our community. We are designing ministries and programs just for them. We believe this new generation deserves our best energy.

The best is yet to come. It is obvious that we have an opportunity to have a significant impact on our community.  We recently purchased prime property to construct our new facilities. We have a great future; we hope Dunnellon Community Church will be a part of your future.
