What does God have to say about coming together in fellowship and community?

"As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend." Proverbs 27:17

"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them." Matthew 18:20

It's important to God that we come together and build great relationships with each other and our communities.  We believe in providing an inclusive and encouraging setting for our congregation and our guests, while giving praise to our Lord.

"The Holy Spirit And Christmas"

John 14:25-27

  Churches of Christ are patterned after the actual congregations found in the New Testament. We have no "earthly" headquarters, but  getting our Spiritual direction from following only the Word of God.       

   The Church of Christ was built by Christ Himself, Matthew 16:18, we honor His name, realizing that He is the only "Head" of The Church. Colossians 1:18.  Christ's Church was  introduced to the world in Acts Chapter 2 approximately 33 AD. When repentive sinners were baptized for the remission of their sins. Each receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit to guide them/us in all truth. John 16:13

Hurricane IDA, Louisiana (Sept 2021)

Weeks after Hurricane IDA, Churches of Christ Help with relief efforts in Louisiana.  Eric Dishongh, minister for the Hickory Knoll Church of Christ in Harahan, La. located in Jefferson Parish, became a hub for supply distribution to the surrounding community. Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort Inc. sent a 53-foot-long trailer truck loaded with essentials items that Dishongh and his congregation gave to those in need.  It was only one of 12 shipments the Nashville, Tenn. based ministry sent to Louisiana between Aug. 31 and Sept 13. Director Mike Lewis said. "Supplies included food packages, essential items and cleaning supplies."
