We are a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. This denomination was founded in the United States in the early 1800s, and continues to be influenced by its founding ideals of our unity in Christ with openness and diversity in practice and belief. We are identified with the Protestant “mainstream” and are locally and globally involved in social justice and other concerns. Disciples have vigorously supported world and national programs of education, agricultural assistance, racial reconciliation, care of the developmentally disabled, and aid to victims of war and calamity.
The red chalice symbolizes the central place of communion in worship. The cross on the chalice is in the position of being carried. This is the cross of the disciple Andrew which serves as a reminder of the ministry of each person and the importance of evangelism. As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the universal body of Christ, all are welcome to participate in weekly sacrament of communion. It is Christ’s table, not ours. It is Christ’s invitation, not ours.
We welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us. To learn more about the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), please visit www.disciples.org.
