Welcome! We are so happy to meet you.
What to Expect
We are a caring group of people, from all backgrounds and beliefs, who gather every Sunday to break bread together in Holy Communion. Our church grew out of the Restoration Movement in the early 1800s. As such, we prize religious liberty and believe that unity within the Church comes from a couple of old Restoration era sayings: “No Creed but Christ” and “No book but the Bible.” Simply put, we are a community full of differences in hometowns, sports allegiances, and political beliefs, but, when we come together to worship God, we put our differences aside and celebrate God’s love through Jesus Christ.
This means that we welcome everyone, regardless of race, age, gender identity or expression, sexual identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, family shape, economic privilege, physical or mental ability, education level, political stance, or theological perspective.
Come as you are. All are welcome.
What is the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)?
Our church is part of a denomination called the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). This denomination actually formed out of a protest movement against the rigid denominationalism of Christians in the early 1800s. Our founders believed in the importance of Christian unity and felt the labels and distinctions that separated Christians were wrong. Their hope was to unite Christians by returning to New Testament faith and practices.
