Welcome to Englewood Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are a loving, open and affirming. We are a social justice oriented Church who are, committed to following Jesus in our personal lives and as a church family. As members of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, we don’t have creeds or doctrines. We think how we live our faith is more important. We have a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we believe God’s direction for us is a lifelong journey, intended to be shared and reflected upon with others. God’s love and mercy are shown to others through acts of justice and peace. Our church shines when we move outside our walls, and become the hands and feet of Christ. We are blessed by our gifts and our gratitude expresses itself in how we use our gifts, and talents for mission and ministry. We value unity amidst diversity, not uniformity. We value freedom of belief, and a reasoned, thoughtful approach to faith. We take the Bible seriously – not literally.

Worship is at 10:00 am. during our Summer months and 10:45 am. during the Fall/Winter months. Worship service lasts about an hour. *What is the worship service like? Our worship service is best described as traditional, and informally formal! Yes, we still have pews and a pipe organ. Whatever the style of music on a particular Sunday, it is done well. Some songs are accompanied by our talented musicians on the amazing pipe organ or the piano and fills the sanctuary with a beautiful sound. Our "Special music" will often include our talented instrumentalists, many from our own congregation. The bulletin informs you when to stand up and where to find the songs. *Where should I park? We have several spots for those with disabilities near the main entrance off of 44th Ave. Most people park in the North parking lot, parallel with Englewood Ave. We also have a south parking lot accessible from 44th Ave., and Douglas St. *Where is the sanctuary? The sanctuary is located at the far South end of the building. Following worship, guests are invited into the Fellowship Hall, just off the main entrance, for refreshments. Monthly potlucks (first Sundays) are especially popular. *What activities are available for my children on Sunday mornings? Kids are welcome. For those who would like, a nursery is available for babies and toddlers during worship. Following the children’s time in worship, children are invited to participate in Children’s Church, which is usually based on the Pastor’s theme for the sermon. *What should I wear? Feel free to come as you are and dress as you’d like. Here at ECC, you’ll find all different sorts of people from all different walks of life. Some folks like to dress up for church and some wear jeans. Some people wear a tie or a dress and others have tattoos and piercings. Some people with tattoos and piercings wear a tie or a dress. You are welcome and will feel at home just as you are. *Can I take Communion? You may know Communion as Eucharist, or The Lord’s Supper, or you may have no idea what it means when we pass around bread and juice. At ECC we have Communion every Sunday. We believe Jesus Christ is the host at the table of communion, and everyone is invited to the table. You do not have to be a member of our church, or any church to take communion. *What do I do with this plate of money when it's passed to me? As part of our worship, we believe it is important to offer, as an act of gratitude, a part of what God has given to us back to God’s work through the Church. As a guest we hope you will feel free to give as you feel led. It is not a duty, obligation or requirement for anyone.

Every Monday, Herb Schmidt takes the lead in guiding a group on invigorating hikes through diverse terrains. These outings may involve traversing hilly landscapes or exploring a multitude of different trails, providing an exciting change of scenery each week. When winter arrives, the group doesn't retreat indoors. Instead, they swap their hiking boots for snowshoes and transform the frosty landscape into their playground, adding a delightful twist to their regular outdoor activities. The snowshoeing adventures during the winter months offer an exciting way to stay active and enjoy the beauty of nature, even in the chilliest weather.
