We are part of a denomination called the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We like to call ourselves Disciples. You can identify us by the red chalice with the St. Andrew's Cross on our church sign. This mainline Protestant denomination centers faith not in a creed but in Christ, allowing plenty of room for differing personal beliefs. Membership is by faith in Christ and baptism. Worship is familiar and comfortable to a wide range of persons of differing religious backgrounds. Faith in Christ is renewed each Sunday through sharing in Communion around the Lord's table. We are often referred to as "people of the chalice" because of our high regard for sharing in the Lord's Supper. Communion is truly the Disciples' centerpiece, shared every time we gather to worship. Hence, Disciples are a table-focused, not pulpit-focused, people. That is why we are "home" to so many people representing a variety of backgrounds, opinions, and beliefs.
