Is there a Dress Code?

No. In any of our services, there is no dress code. Some wear suits, some wear jeans. All are welcome as they are.

Is there childcare available?

Yes. We have a nursery, playground, children’s Sunday school, and a youth group. Children and youth of all ages are welcome to join us in worship and to take part in Sunday schools and activities designed for their age group.

Will I be expected to tithe, get baptized, come every week, sign a profession of faith, or anything else like that?

No. We encourage folks to come as often as they can, to give financially if they are in a position to do so, and to be baptized if they wish to profess their faith in front of a church for the first time. But, these are all things that are best done in their own time and as you feel ready for them. As for professions of faith, the only question we ask prior to membership is, “Do you believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and do your profess Him as Lord and Savior?”

What theologians / doctrines / creeds do the Disciples teach?

The short answer is, it varies. The Disciples of Christ universally uphold the basics of the Christian faith. Beyond that, we encourage study and discussion of various thinkers and theologians. So long as we agree on who Jesus is, we can have differing opinions on the other things of our faith. Historically, the Disciples come from the Presbyterian church. We tend to read the Bible with an emphasis on knowing God rather than discerning each letter. Finally, since our denominational restructure in the 1960’s, we’ve had an increased focus in liberation theology (helping the marginalized and hurting among us).

What translation of the Bible should I read?

The one you’ll actually read! Find a translation you like. Here at the church, we usually read from the NRSV. Other popular translations are the ESV, the NIV, and the CEB. Some have found “the Message” and “the Good News Translation” to be helpful as a paraphrased version, getting at the meaning without the wordiness. Others enjoy “the Mirror” for emphasis on spirituality.
