Get to Know Us

Founded in 2023, The Community Fellowship is a still new church plant that came about through the passing away of a historic congregation.  Jamestown UMC was a stalwart of the Jamestown community for over 150 years.  After many tragedies and hard conversations, the small congregation made the difficult decision to step out in faith, shut down what they had been doing, and look to start something new.  

God graciously provided a building for the congregation to purchase and begin worshiping in, in November, 2023.  From our very first Sunday, our God-given vision for The Community Fellowship has been to create an intentionally multigenerational community of believers who will be a blessing to the immediate and extended community around us.


What We Believe

The Community Fellowship is a theologically Wesleyan congregation that adheres to the doctrines and discipline of the Global Methodist Church.

Our most central and important theological declaration is that Jesus Christ is Lord.  Everything else that we preach and believe stems from that confession.

We also confess the historic Christian Creeds, and see those as the explanation of what it means for us to declare Jesus as Lord of our lives.


Our Pastor

Pastor Benjamin (Ben) Beeks has been serving at Community Fellowship since September, 2023.  A graduate of Purdue University and Asbury Theological Seminary, he is passionate about making disciples who make disciples and reaching those that have been discouraged and disenfranchised by the church, constantly reminding people that Jesus is good news for us all!

Ben and his wife, Emily, have been married since July, 2021.  She is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University and works in finance.  Emily is passionate about helping people steward well the resources that God has given them.

Along with serving at Community Fellowship, Ben and Emily lead a microchurch in their home in Indianapolis called The Gathering.
