                                                                            just right for you and your family.

SUNDAY PRAYER SERVICE  (Taize) 5:00 . . . Services are held in the Chapel, located in the north building.  Taize is a sung and silent participatory prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative state through music, song and silence.  The service is between 30 and 40 minutes long and uses simple, repetitive songs and ample silence to proclaim and respond to the Word of God.

 


MONDAY MORNING STUDY GROUP ~ 8:00 . . . Group discussion on various topics and books.


THURSDAY BIBLE STUDY ~ 5:30 . . . We all bring a sack dinner and eat together before we begin

                                                            our study. Disciples believe that Theology and Biblical

                                                            Interpretation is best developed around the table.

                                          visit shut-ins, sew quilts for the sick and suffering, cook meals for the

                                          ill and grieving, and send cards to members and visitors.

 

 

An atmosphere of . . . FREEDOM

 

Open Communion . . . Disciples celebrate communion during weekly worship and the Lord's table is

                            open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.

 

The Church is ONE . . . We believe that all Christians are called to be ONE in the Body of Christ and

                                    seek unity and fellowship with all denominations.

 

Freedom of Belief . . . As Disciples, we are called together around two essentials of faith: a belief

                                   that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God, our Lord and Savior, and a

                                   belief that Christians are free to follow their own consciences, guided by the

                                   Bible, the Holy Spirit, fellowship and study in community, and prayer. As

                                   Disciples we not only enjoy this Freedom in Christ, we respectfully extend   

                                   that freedom to others.

 

Baptism by Immersion . . . In believers baptism, the old self-centered life is set aside and a new

                                           life of faith in GOD begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by

                                           immersion, all other baptism traditions are honored and received.

 

Ministry of Believers . . . Both ministers and lay people are encouraged and invited to lead in the

                                        worship service and at the table. We are ALL called to minister and serve

                                        each other and are dedicated to spiritual growth.
