Our congregation is part of a regional and general fellowship of churches in the United States & Canada called the "Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)." Our history & traditions go back to an American frontier movement that said we are not the only Christians, but we seek to be Christians only!

And Jesus said "Come to waters . . ."
We don't still go down to Raccoon Creek, but yes, we immerse you when we do what we call "baptism." This is what Jesus came to accept as an act of faith from John the Baptist, and how Philip welcomed the Ethiopian into God's family in Acts 8, and this is how we see ourselves, in the act of baptism, as buried and our sins laid down in the grave with Jesus, but raised up to new life in Christ. If you have already been baptized, we stand ready to welcome you as a sister or a brother! If you want to learn more about what we believe baptism is, and does, you can read more at the link below, or talk to the pastor or any of the other elders.
You are invited to Christ's table.
We are simply here, we believe, to serve at the Lord's table, and his command is simple: "Do this in remembrance of me." If you feel moved to participate, you need not be a member to join us in taking communion. All are welcome!
Our tradition is that the elements, the bread and the cup, are passed along the pews, and we hold them to take communion together. It's like waiting until everyone has their turkey and mashed potatoes before you dig in! It's a family meal, and again, you are welcome to eat with us. What Jesus is strengthening us to do next after dinner we will learn in good time . . .
