Who We Are
Parma Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was established in 1955. We are located on Ridge Road about half a mile south of the Parmatown Shopping Center.
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a mainline denomination, tracing its roots back to the early 1800s. This denomination founded a number of well-known colleges, including Hiram, Bethany, and Texas Christian. Three United States Presidents have had connections with this denomination -- President Garfield was also a church pastor.
All visitors are welcome at our church. We have open communion at every Sunday worship service and at some other special services throughout the year. The Disciples of Christ symbol is a chalice with the Saint Andrews cross, again emphasizing our celebration of Holy communion. The cross becomes upright as the chalice is tipped to spread its contents across Christianity.
Parma Christian Church is in involved in a number of community activities,. We have a food pantry that helps 50 or more area families. We are the focus church for the Parma Health Ministry, which works with Parma Hospital to provide medical care for the "working poor" that are unable to afford regular health insurance.
Additionally, an ethnic Ukrainian congregation also meets in our facility, having their Sunday worship at 2:00 pm. Parma Christian Church and the Ukrainian congregation share their talents to enhance our fellowship. One example is their decorating the sanctuary during Advent leading to a live nativity service.
