What are services like?
Blended service includes contemporary praise music with a praise band, featuring electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, trumpet and vocals. Service transitions to more traditional format with piano accompaniment as it progresses.
The children are invited to come up for a Children's Moment before the sermon and then are escorted to the Children's Church wing for a story time designed especially for them.
The celebration of the Lord's Supper, where we commune with God and with one another, offers the climactic moment in every regular worship service.
What is the community like?
A congregation of the theologically and culturally diverse Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we have no creed but Christ and no authoritative book of teachings other than scripture. We emphasize freedom of conscience in interpreting scripture and pride ourselves on our theological and political diversity as a congregation.
A deeply loving and mutually caring congregation, we focus on the abundant love and grace of God for all who seek God through Christ. We seek to provide a warm embrace to all who come within our community, whether visitors or long-time members.
An outreach oriented congregation, we give twelve percent of all of our receipts to outside ministries and proudly participate in and/or support an array of outreach ministries, including Keizer Community Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Simonka Place, Salem Outreach Shelter, Compassion International, and the various outreach ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We also provide an indoor park for rainy days and house the Keizer Christian Preschool.
Believing the life in Christ involves a decision to live a radically different life from that lived by the world around us, we practice baptism by immersion of believers for new converts to Christianity. However, we welcome all confessed believers in Christ into our congregation regardless of their form of baptism.
What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome anyone who seeks to learn and grow in God's word. Our pastor frequently holds classes to educate and prepare people for baptism. We also have several bible studies held during the week to help learn more in-depth about God's plan in our lives.
