Our Story

Common Ground Church was founded by Pastors Mike and Kelly during an outreach at the annual Street Painting Festival in Lake Worth Beach. From a small core of believers, was birthed a new church in downtown Lake Worth. The church began meeting in the back of a pizza shop called Rotellis on Lake Ave.  As the church grew, the next stop was NorthGrade Elementary.  This was a wonderful place to meet but we missed being downtown so we were able to meet in various locations on South J Street, including the Bamboo Room and Common Grounds Brew and Roastery.  Today, Common Ground Church has a home at 1201 S Federal Hwy. and is continually reaching out to the community.

“The best is yet to come and we cannot wait to see the Lord move in our community, in the church, and in His people.”

“After waiting and praying for the right opportunity, God opened the doors of our new facility where we worship today.“
