The Disciples are the oldest Christian denomination that was founded on American soil. We "grew up" as the country did, with our roots deep in the American frontier of the mid 1800's. There's a rugged individualism that congregations hold on to, and there's a vibrant respect for what we call the "Priesthood of all believers" - a notion that laypeople and clergy alike are called by God to the ministry of Good News.
This Sunday we begin a 4-week preaching and learning series all about the Disciples of Christ. We'll discover who we are, where we've been and what's next for us as a denomination and congregation. The (still nameless) class that I teach in the Qahal classroom (old nursery) will be learning about the DOC as well; kind of a "Disciples 101" course. All are welcome to attend.
I hope to see you Sunday for 8:00 or 10:30 services. - Andy
