It isn't always easy stepping foot into a new church. Below are some frequently asked questions.
WHAT IS THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH (DISCIPLES OF CHRIST)?
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) sprang from two movements that took place simultaneously in Pennsylvania and Kentucky during the Restoration Movement of the early 19th century. We are ecumenical, meaning we promote the unity and respect of all Christian Churches, and we firmly believe that everyone is invited to the Lord's Table. We have a vision of and a passion for justice, for loving and serving all people. We reject the use of creeds and invite you to interpret the Bible without ordered doctrine. We are governed by our congregation and have an active lay ministry. Learn more at disciples.org.
DO I HAVE TO INTRODUCE MYSELF DURING WORSHIP?
No. Do you like to blend in? Not a fan of "all eyes on you?" Not a problem. While we do offer the chance to introduce yourself during worship (and we love meeting new people), you will not be singled out.
CAN I WEAR JEANS?
Uhm...did Jesus wear dress pants? We are here to glorify God. Please do so in attire that helps you do just that, whatever that may be.
WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO TAKE COMMUNION?
No one is forced to take communion. Communion is a sacred encounter with Christ. We welcome all believers in Christ to celebrate the Lord's Supper regardless of denomination, but if you aren't comfortable taking communion, simply and politely pass the tray to your neighbor. If you have questions about communion, we encourage you to set a time to speak with one of our ministers or lay persons.
DO I HAVE TO DONATE?
Be assured, visitors are in no way forced to contribute to the offering.
