All are welcome at the Lord's table. We believe the body of Christ is to be one. That means that all are invited to respond to Christ's invitation to draw closer to God around the communion table no matter where you come from, what you've done, or who you are. All are welcome. For Disciples, the open table is a powerful symbol of our deep commitment to Christian unity. The open table honors diversity even as it celebrates unity in Christ.
Disciples congregations celebrate the Lord's Supper every Sunday. The table is not only at the center of worship in our congregation, it is at the center of who we are as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
We don't stay at the table. We move out into the world to fulfill our mission, to be and share the Good News of Jesus Christ, witnessing, loving, and serving from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth. (Act 1:8)
We believe that God is calling the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to be a faithful, growing church that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality, and a passion for justice. (Micah 6:8)
The chalice symbolizes the central place of communion in worship. The X-shaped cross of the disciple Andrew is a reminder of the ministry of each person and the importance of evangelism.
