Mission Minded

We believe the church is a place to come as you are and experience the presence of God in a very real and powerful way. It is a place of acceptance, or worship, and of spiritual fulfillment. But it is only the starting place! We hear a special calling to make visible the unity of all Christians. In our diversity we belong to one another because we commonly belong to Christ.

Disciples congregations all over the world unite in the belief that we are called to reach out to others, to be one with Christ, and to find ways to show God's love through witness and service.

For one hour a week, our mentors talk and play games with a student from Washington Elementary.

Relationships are made by laughing, playing, and supporting a child. We’ve seen these students lives change from just one hour a week of support.
