Central Woodward Christian Church
Who We Are
We seek to be a loving family and community.
The message of Jesus is one of love -- love of God and love of neighbor. As followers of Jesus we are seeking to become a truly loving community. Becoming a family or commuinity takes patience and commitment.? We fall short, but are raised up through God's gracious love.
We seek to walk together in relationship with God
The life of faith is a journey in the presence of God. The mission of the church is to provide an opportunity for God's people to share together in this journey of faith. In pursuit of this mission, this congregation seeks to offer encouragement, counsel, talteaching, and a safe place to follow in the ways of Jesus Christ.
We seek to be a welcoming people.
Jesus welcomed any and all who would come to him. As his followers we seek to throw open the doors and invite all who would come. Our creed is simple -- we confess faith in the God revealed to us and embodied in the person of Jesus Christ. We seek to welcome all who would come, no matter their age, ethnicity, theology, or sexual orientation.
We come together at an open table.
As Disciples we believe that the Lord's Table (also known as the Eucharist or Communion) is the center of our worship. It is here that we most fully encounter the risen Christ as we remember his offering on the cross. Therefore, we share each Sunday in the service of Communion. Because Christ is the host, the table is open to all who would come.
