OUR COMMUNITY

Cibolo Creek Community Church is nestled in a charming Hill Country community only minutes north of San Antonio via Interstate 10.  Boerne (pronounced: Burr-nee) was settled by German immigrants over 150 years ago and retains its old-world character and small-town appeal despite experiencing significant growth.  2014 census data demonstrates a population of 12,835 with anticipated growth to over 14,000 by 2019.  With two high schools, three middle schools, and 7 elementary schools, the district is packed full of students eager to learn and grow.  Overflow (our student ministry) also draws students from the neighboring districts of San Antonio Northside and Comal ISDs.
