About Hydesville Community Church

Hydesville Community Church (HCC) is located in an unincorporated area of Humboldt County at the intersection of Rohnerville Road and State Highway 36 (3296 Highway 36, Hydesville, CA 95547; Mailing Address: PO Box 609, Hydesville, CA 95547). HCC is a partner with the Evangelical Free Church of America and the Western District, EFCA.

The church is situated on approximately three acres of land and is completely debt-free. The original church building is older with a historic architectural design. However, remodels and updates have been and continue to be made inside enabling the facility to include a Worship Center that seats about 220 people with a foyer; a Fellowship Hall with an ample, recently remodeled kitchen; a children’s wing with a small, enclosed playground; and office space. Connected to the church property is a field that is owned by the church and is used for youth activities and worship services during the summer months.

Congregation Participation and Demographics

Currently, the average total attendance from two Sunday services and online streaming of both services is around 200 people. The Children’s Ministry held during the second Sunday service (Kids Rock, grades PreK-6th) sees 30-40 participants each week. HCC has robust, mid-week adult small groups for men, women and couples. While HCC does consist of a multi-generational congregation, the majority of church attendees are 60+, with middle-aged individuals and young families as the second-largest age demographic present and young adults and teens comprising the smallest percentage of regular attendees. Ethnic and socioeconomic diversity is low, but this is consistent and reflective of the local community demographics.
